( Figs 2 D –HView FIGURE 2 A – H. A)

So far, only one specimen (the holotype) is known from Algeria (Niedbała 2006).

Measurements of specimen from Italy, Basilicata region: prodorsum: length 232, width 162, height 106; setae: ss 78, in 114, le 76, ro 63, ex 10; notogaster: length 448, width 313, height 318, setae: c 1 63, h 1 76, ps 1 71; genitoaggenital plate 169 × 58; anoadanal plate 195 × 51.

Specimens from Italy have larger prodorsum and smaller notogaster than holotype. All other characters are the same as in holotype, only heads of sensilli are rather fusiform than almost globular, as in original description.
