Comparative material.

New Caledonia: 1 ♀ ( ZMB: 45236, holotype) - 24. 2. 1977, Ile de Pins, 6696, leg. J. Balogh.

Remarks.

Karg (1996) illustrated this species as having only 28 pairs of dorsal setae on the dorsal shield. I could detect 29 setal pairs (including r4, missing in the illustration of the original description), leg chaetotaxy typical of the genus, a prominent poroid structure on each peritrematal shield, and slightly smaller sternal shield than depicted in the original description.
