Zealeuctra talladega GrubbsWikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Zealeuctra talladega Grubbs, 2005: 40. Holotype ♂ (INHS), tributary to Barbaree Creek, 22 km E Talladega, Clay Co., Alabama

Description

Male - abdominal tergal cleft. Anterior portion is near parallel-sided, U-shaped, and broadly rounded along anterior margin (Figs 7A–C). Posterior portion is somewhat V-shaped and sinuous along inner margins, posterior terminus marked by either a single (Fig. 7C) or paired (Figs 7A–8B) medially-directed subtriangular projections. Crenulations absent from inner margins of cleft..
Male - epiproct. Base very broad and subquadrate in shape, narrowing to anteriorly-recurved and broadly tapering terminal spine, no accessory spine present although a small subterminal posterior nub may be present (Figs 7D–F). Subquadrate base varies from rounded broadly to right angular in shape. No accessory spine or cusp present, but a minute, very low, medially-positioned hump is present along the anterior, recurved portion of epiproct (Figs 7D–F).
Female - 7th sternum. Seventh sternum with a small, lobe nested in a scarcely-convex central notch. Lobe ranges in shape from subtriangular (Fig. 7G) to convex (Fig. 7H). Posterior margin moderately convex.

Distribution

USA: AL (DeWalt et al. 2012[1])

Remarks

This species is known only from the southern Talladega Mountains region of eastern Alabama (Fig. 13), the southern terminus of the Appalachian Mountains. Extensive collecting efforts by both the author and Dr. Andrew Sheldon since 2005 have yet to produce localities north from the two counties (Clay and Talladega) where this species has been obtained.
