Deltocephalus cotulus (Cogan)

Thamnotettix cotula Cogan, 1916: 193 , South Africa; Theron, 1970: 318, figs 94–104.

Deltocephalus cotula (Cogan) , Linnavuori, 1961: 481.

Remarks. We tentatively retain this species in Deltocephalus as it has a simple dorsally curved aedeagal shaft with an apical gonopore. However, Theron (1970: 320) made the following statement (with added information in square brackets from Theron’s description of the species): “various characters, such as the spinulation of the fore tibia [3+4], the number of closed subapical cells [two], the structure of the male plates [triangular, lateral margins convex and each bearing 6–7 strong uniseriate spines; apex dorsally with numerous long slender setae] and the dorsomedial sclerotization of the pygofer, suggests that it should be included in Ribaut’s (1952) subgenus Recilia ”. Linnavuori (1961: 481) also considered this species to be misplaced in Deltocephalus .
