Paramacrobiotus richtersi ( Murray, 1911 )


Paramacrobiotus richtersi ( Murray, 1911)  

Material examined. Localities: Nos. 1, 2 and 5 (46 specimens).

This is a tentative diagnosis as we did not find any eggs to confirm the verdict, which is based only on the characters of bucco-phayngeal apparatus and claws.

This species is considered cosmopolitan and was already recorded for Israel.
