Description

Voucher material NHM_54, width of disc 4.7mm. Arms absent. Medial antenna absent (Fig. 9).

Genetic data for this taxa with new GenBank accession numbers are provided in Table 2

Diagnosis

Morphologically and genetically close to Eremicaster   sp (Fig. 5). Forms a unique monophyletic clade distinct from other AB01 specimens. No genetic matches on GenBank or Barcode of Life Database.
