Evertella orissaensis ( Prasad, 1975)   , n. comb.

Bakerina orissaensis Prasad, 1975: 18−20   .

Mixonychus (Bakerina) orissaensis (Prasad)   : Bolland et al., 1998: 86.

Distribution — India.

Known hosts — Allium sp.   , ( Amaryllidaceae   ), Artocarpus heterophyllus   ( Moraceae   ) ( Prasad, 1975).

Remarks — Evertella   was erected by Meyer (1987) to accommodate Mixonychus (Mixonychus) koegasensis ( Meyer, 1974)   . Like Mixonychus (Mixonychus)   , Evertella   is characterized

by having the dorsal integument finely striate and with protuberances that produce a reticulate appearance, and a simple claw-like empodium. Evertella   was separated from Mixonychus   because of dorsal opisthosomal setae f1 are absent (present in Mixonychus   ).

Prasad 1975 described the dorsal integument of Bakerina orissaensis   as striate with comparatively large, round punctations, and Bolland et al. (1998) placed B. orissaensis   within Mixonychus (Bakerina)   due to the striate dorsum and overlooked the absence of seta f 1 in B. orissaensis   which distinguish Evertella   from Mixonychus   . Therefore, due to absence of f1 seta, Mixonychus (Bakerina) orissaensis   is transferred from Mixonychus (Bakerina)   to Evertella   .
