Cryptops philammus gabonensis  Demange, 1968 Biol. Gabonica, 4: 288, figs 8, 9.

Description.

(Data from Demange 1968). A pigmented species. Anterior wall of forcipular coxosternite almost straight with 3+3 marginal setae with 1+1 long post-marginals. Tergite paramedian sulci commencing on tergite 8. Sternite longitudinal sulci absent. Anterior margin of forcipular coxosternite almost straight with 3 long marginal setae and one long seta behind the margin. Ultimate leg with 3, 4 or 5 tibial and 2 tarsal saw teeth. Demange (1968) in a table comparing Cryptops philammus  and Cryptops orthus  gave pore field with posterior pores near the margin (of the coxopleuron) implying that this is the case in Cryptops philammus gabonensis  .

Distribution.

Gabon.

Remarks.

The data available are insufficient for the exact identity of Cryptops philammus gabonensis  to be determined. It is here regarded as a nomen dubium. As noted in the introduction, Cryptops philammus  has a saw tooth on the ultimate leg femur and thus belongs to the doriae group of species.
