3. Bryochoerus intermedius ( Murray, 1910) sensu  lato [T]

Echiniscus (Bryochoerus) intermedius J. Murray, 1910  (de Barros 1942 a)

Echiniscus intermedius Murray (Murray & Wailes 1913) 

Terra typica: Australia ( Australia)

Brazil:

• 24 ° 30 ′S, 48 °05′W; 100 m asl: São Paulo State, Eldorado, mosses. de Barros (1942 a)

Peru:

• 13 ° 12 ′S, 69 ° 38 ′W; 1–3,000 ft asl / 300–900 m asl: Madre de Dios Region, Tambopata Valley. Murray & Wailes (1913)

Record numbers: Brazil: 1, Peru: 1; total: 2.

Remarks: In 1911 – 12, Murray and Wailes (1913) were travelling with a group surveying the boundary between Bolivia and Peru. The region that included Tambopata Valley was referred to by Murray and Wailes (1913) as Bolivian but shortly after was identified as Peruvian ( Peru-Bolivia Boundary Commission 1918). Bryochoerus  is a doubtful taxon ( Marcus 1936; Kristensen 1987) with an unclear systematic position, and it has been hypothesised that Bryochoerus intermedius  is synonymous with Bryodelphax parvulus  (see below). Marcus (1936) suggested the identification of Echiniscus (Bryochoerus) intermedius  in ‘Bolivia’ was unsafe. This species has a disjunct distribution and known from several localities in South America, Australia, North America and Pacific Islands ( McInnes 1994 a). However, further work is required to verify the presence of this taxon in South America.
