PROBLEM FLAG! The Taxon authority is surely (Michael, 1880), and if not, then this needs explanation ... Stephen Thorpe 09:28, 23 August 2011 (CEST)

Type Material

United Kingdom Porth Gwarra Michael


Dimensions of available specimens (see locality data): Mean length 1107 ym (range 1000-1250) (n=9); mean width 937 ym (range 800-1080) (n=9). There is a certain sexually related size difference: mean length of female 1153 ym (range 1080-1250) (n=3); mean width of female 1000 ym (range 950-1050) (n=3). Mean length of males 1083 ym (range 1000-1200) (n=6); mean width of males 905 ym (range 800-1080) (n = 6). Prodorsum: Rostrum rounded; rostral setae projecting straight forwards, slightly setose, pointed, and set on small tubercles. Lamellae at lateral edges of prodorsum, cusps somewhat raised from the surface, not quite reaching tip of rostrum, and joined by a translamella. Lamellar setae faintly setose and inserted in the tips of the cusps. Space between both lamellae and cusps with some faint horizontal lines. Tutoria well developed, both they and the lamellae patterned with interlaced ridges. Interlamellar setae inserted just anterior of the dorsosejugal region, long, pointed and faintly setose. Bothridia simple, cup-shaped, partly concealed by anterior region of notogaster and linked with the posterior region of the lamellae. Exobothridial setae long, fine, smooth, and arising posteriorly of bothridia. Sensilli with a fusiform capitulum Coming to a distinct point and with sparse, minute setulae which are occasionally evident on the pedicel also. Notogaster: Smooth, most specimens apparently bearing only two pairs of setae at the posterior rim. The lectotype has two possible setal insertion points laterally, and 5 pores, some with a short, fine seta, others with a slight peg-like structure, yet others represented merely as insertion points in the integument. Humeral processes slight, with one or two small fissures. Dorsosejugal suture complete, straight and strong. Venter: Apodemata strong, with some tuberculation. Genital region encompassed anteriorly by epimera 3; genital plates patterned with some vertical lines. Epimeral setal formula 3-2-4-0; epimera 2 and 3 with some areolation. Genital setae number 6 pairs, aggenital setae 1 pair, anal setae 2 pairs, adanal setae 3 pairs. Legs: Tridactylous; each claw equally strong and only slightly curved. Femora with ventral flanges. Trochantera and femora III and IV with blunt posterior points.
