Diagnosis

Boreohesperus capensis is considerably larger than other species of the genus, measuring approximately 20 mm in length, and 2 mm in mid-body width (Figs 2A–B). Additionally, the solenomere of the gonopod is twisted and undivided at its tip, unlike those of other species, and the non-seminiferous branch of the gonopod in Boreohesperus capensis lacks the extra process seen in all other species (Figs 1A, 2C–F).

Description

Holotype male: See Shear (1992)[1].

Distribution

This species is restricted to the Cape Range region of Western Australia (Fig. 9).
