Name

Zealeuctra hitei Ricker & RossWikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Zealeuctra hitei Ricker & Ross, 1969: 1118. Holotype ♂ (INHS), 3 mi S Johnson City, Blanco Co., Texas

Description

Male - abdominal tergal cleft. Anterior portion nearly identical to Zealeuctra claasseni, with slight inward medial swelling but no apparent crenulations along inner margins (Fig. 5A). Posterior portion slightly more U-shaped with paired medially-projected processes, the terminal projection larger, convex, and thumb-like, the subterminal projection smaller and subtriangular.
Male - epiproct. Base slender and triangular, narrowing to anteriorly-recurved and tapering terminal spine, no accessory spine present (Fig. 5B). A small “step” (sensu Ricker and Ross 1969[1]) demarks the base from the tapering spine. No accessory spine or cusp present.
Female - 7th sternum. Seventh sternum with a small, subtriangular lobe nested in a scarcely-concave central notch (Fig. 5C). Posterior margin essentially straight.

Distribution

USA: TX (DeWalt et al. 2012[2])

Remarks

The form of the cleft of this species is nearly identical to Zealeuctra claasseni, and the epiproct is essentially a narrower form of that exhibited by Zealeuctra claasseni. Ricker and Ross (1969[1], their fig. 28) speculated that these two species share a common ancestor.
