PSEUDOTHYRETES MARIAE DUFRANE, 1945: 127

Type material

Holotype: ♀ ( DRC) ‘Kamituga, 15.10.39, M. Fontaine’ ( KBIN).

Biology

Unknown. Distribution

This taxon is known only from the type locality in eastern DRC .

Molecular variation

Unknown, and not investigated.

Remarks

Pseudothyretes mariae most probably represents one of the already known taxa. Considering the general distribution, it is least probable that it is the female of P. obscurus sp. nov. or P. nigrita , although even this possibility cannot be definitely rejected.

Despite numerous requests to obtain the holotype for study we were told that it was on loan and unobtainable.
