status

 

Epicriopsis siculus Berlese, 1916 

Epicriopsis horrida var. sicula  Berlese, 1916a: 48.

Type depository.

Istituto Sperimentale per la Zoologia Agraria, Firenze, Italy.

Type locality and habitat.

Italy, Sicily, Palermo, in moss.

Comparative material.

Italy: 2 ♀♀ ( ISZA: 99/9, 99/10, syntypes) - Palermo, musco (labelled Epicrius mollis  ).

Remarks.

I examined two Berlese slides, each bearing one female of Epicriopsis  collected from moss in Palermo, Sicily, and labelled Epicrius mollis  . As stated by Castagnoli and Pegazzano (1985), they could most likely represent unlabelled and undesignated type specimens of Epicriopsis horrida var. sicula  . Unfortunately, both female specimens are absolutely unsuitable for study due to the darkening of the mounting medium.
