Kaimakamis and Panagiotidou in [Taiwanese J. Math. 18(6) (2014), 1991–1998] proposed an open question: are there real hypersurfaces in nonflat complex space forms whose ∗-Ricci tensor satisfies the condition of 𝔻-parallelism? In this short note, we present an affirmative answer and prove that a three-dimensional real hypersurface in a nonflat complex space form has 𝔻-parallel ∗-Ricci tensor if and only if it is locally congruent to either a geodesic hypersphere of radius r in ℂ H2(c) with tanh(|c|2r)=12 or a ruled real hypersurface.
