Type locality and habitat.

Pacific Ocean Region, New Caledonia, Koumac, in a cave.

Comparative material.

New Caledonia: 4 ♀♀, 1 ♂ ( ZMB: 45259, female holotype; ZMB: 45260, paratype; ZMB: 45261, allotype; ZMB: 45267, paratypes) - 15. 2. 1977, Koumac, höhle, 6731-6733, 2653, leg. J. Balogh.

Remarks.

In the original description, Karg (1996) did not comment the number of the dorsal shield setae. There are 29 pairs of the dorsal shield setae on his quite detailed illustration of the dorsum. Examination of the type specimens showed that the dorsal chaetotaxy is partly confused by depicting a non existing pair between r3 and r4, and by omitting one setal pair on medial surface (z6). In addition, I could find six pairs of opisthogastric setae (only five pairs shown in the original illustration). Genu III with one posterolateral seta (as in Ameroseius  ), but tibiae III and IV with two posterolateral setae (as in Kleemannia  ).
