Pseudopterorthochaetes   sp. A

(Fig. 19)

Material. 2 females, Cameroon S.-West Prov., Bakingili, N04°03.350’ E009°03.823’, 24–26.V. 2006, 250m, B.D. Gill leg. ( BDGC, CNCI).

Remarks. This is probably a new species related to P. e l y t r a t u s (Paulian, 1946) and distinguished by the sparser punctation of elytra forming irregular, longitudinal rows. We have only two females and therefore postpone the formal description of this species.
