status

 

Epicriopsis stellata Ishikawa, 1972 

Epicriopsis stellata  Ishikawa, 1972: 95.

Epicriopsis stellata  . - Narita and Moraes 2016: 483.

Type depository.

Biological Laboratory, Matsuyama Shinonome Junior College, Matsuyama, Japan.

Type locality and habitat.

Japan, Ehime Prefectship, Matsuyama, Kuwabara, in haystack, in persimmon orchard ( Diospyros kaki  ).

Comparative material.

Japan: 1 ♀ (CKI, paratype) - 28. 1. 1967, Matsuyama, K. Ishikawa.

Remarks.

I examined a paratype female of this species. I could detect 24 pairs of dorsal shield setae instead of 23 pairs as stated by Ishikawa (1972). Epicriopsis stellata  is closely related to Epicriopsis hungaricus  and Epicriopsis palustris  , and it can be distinguished by the number of opisthogastric setae inserted on soft integument (six pairs in E. stellata  , five pairs in E. palustris  and E. hungaricus  ), and the relative length of S4 and S5 (in E. stellata  , both similar; in E. palustris  and E. hungaricus  , S5 thicker, delicately pilose and at least twice longer than S4).
