Nanodromia phukhao Grootaert & Shamshev, 2003: 45  .

Diagnosis

Species with undifferentiated acrostichal and dorsocentral bristles. Hind femur broadly brownish on middle. Male mid femur slender and bearing thick black anterior bristle at apical quarter, mid femur

( Fig. 182View Figs 181-185) ventrally on apical third with curved flattened setae. Abdomen with gland-like structures ( Fig. 177View Figs 172-177) between tergites 4 and 5 and 5 and 6.

Distribution

Northeast Thailand (Loei Prov.).

Habitat and seasonal occurrence

This species occurs in dry mixed deciduous forest (about 500 m), collected in April and May.

Remarks

Nanodromia phukhao  is similar to N. hutan  sp. nov., but the latter has no thickened anterior preapical bristle on mid femur. It is not unlikely that it could be present in Singapore as well. The epithet 'phukhao' means mountain in Thai. 'Ph' is pronounced as a strong 'p' (not 'f') and 'kh' is a strong k. 'Khao' is pronounced as a rising tone.
