Mitrager noordami Helsdingen, 1985  

Remarks: This species was described from specimens of both sexes from Central Java Province, Indonesia, as the type species of the genus Mitrager Helsdingen, 1985   ( Helsdingen, 1985a). In its somatic and genitalic characters the genus is very similar to Oedothorax Bertkau   , in Förster & Bertkau, 1883. This similarity is based on the same chaeto- and trichobothriotaxy, highly modified male carapace, the male palp conformation, notably by the shape of the embolus and the presence of a convector (named “lamella” by the author of the original description) in the embolic division. The epigyne structure also is very similar to that of Oedothorax   representatives. The species is known only from the Dijeng Plateau (2580 m a.s.l.), Central Java Province, Indonesia ( Helsdingen, 1985a).

Range: Javanese.
