Stenopholea caeca ASSING , 2013


Stenopholea caeca ASSING, 2013  

M a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Ecuador: 1♀, Pichincha, 0°01.6'S, 78°41.4'W, 2300 m, 1.-14.XI. 2013, leg. Brachat (cAss).

C o m m e n t: The original description of this anophthalmous species is based a unique male from Pichincha province ( ASSING 2013). The above female is externally identical to the holotype, suggesting that both specimens are conspecific. It was collected in a cloud forest by sifting the litter layer (BRACHAT pers. comm.).
