Sertitympanum zaheri (El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, 1979)  comb. n.

Kleemania  (sic) zaheri  El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, 1979: 8.

Kleemannia zaheri  . - Zaher 1986: 405.

Type depository.

Not stated.

Type locality and habitat.

Egypt, Kafr-El-Sheikh Governorate, Sagh, in litter.

Remarks.

The only obvious difference between this species and its most similar congeners seems to be the shape of posterior margin of sternal shield which is widely rounded. However, I suspect this species to be a junior synonym of Sertitympanum nodosum  . Photographed specimens stated to be zaheri  and originated from Egypt (kindly sent by R. Abo-Shnaf) apparently belong to S. nodosum  .
