Numerous acetabula located near posterior idiosoma margin, some appear larger than others, but acetabula hard to discern. Ventrally in posterolateral corners a group of setae. Capitulum 108 long, anchoral process short. Length of P 1-5: 34, 78, 52, 106, 48. P 1 elongated; P 2 ventrally and medially with a group of needle-like setae; P 3 with two thin dorsal setae, P 4 slender, ventrally with two long setae. Length of II-leg- 2-6: 68, 45, -, 74, 56.

Discussion

Remarks. The new species is one of the many hyporheic species found in New Zealand. Cook (1983) listed 37 hyporheic species in 20 genera. Pesic et al (2010) listed another hyporheic genus and seven hyporheic species More than half of the 21 hyporheic genera are Notoaturinae.
