status

 

Ameroseius latofolius Karg & Schorlemmer, 2009 

Ameroseius latofolius  Karg & Schorlemmer, 2009: 62.

Type depository.

Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin, Germany.

Type locality and habitat.

Ecuador, between Pifo and Papallacta, jumble of dicotyledon creeping to 2 m height on a tree (labelled litter).

Comparative material.

Ecuador: 1 ♀ ( ZMB: 46150, holotype) - 1989, near Pifo-Papallacta, litter, 70152.

Remarks.

The dorsal chaetotaxy shown in the original description is partly confused by depicting a non existing setae next to vertex (see depicted s1), and by omitting two pairs of setae on mediolateral and marginal surface (z5, r4). What was shown as s1 is apparently part of the palps, strongly pressed under the vertex. Thus, I could detect the normal set of 29 pairs of the dorsal shield setae for this species.
