Fig. 11 View Fig A-C

Material examined

2 juveniles with 10 and 11 pairs of legs, CAMEROON, Kounden, 05º42’ N, 010º40’ E, Eucalyptus woodland, coll. Lejeune, Jul.-Aug. 1974; 3 adults, IVORY COAST, Banco, coll. Remy, 20 Apr. 1950 ( MRAC 7833).

Diagnosis

This species is characterised by the presence of many setae on the anterior part of the second tergite ( Fig. 11A View Fig ) and the cerci ( Fig. 11B View Fig ). Additional diagnostic features to distinguish this species from the other one studied here – Ribautiella schoutedeni – are the shape of the head, 1.2 times as long as wide ( Fig. 11A View Fig ), the moderate size of the penultimate tergite, 0.6 times as long as the last one, the straighter posterior margin of the last one ( Fig. 11B View Fig ), and the absence of striae on the terminal area of the cerci ( Fig. 11C View Fig ).
