Lohmannia murcioides Berlese  , 1896

Lohmannia murcioides  , Berlese, 1916a, p. 176.

The type of the species is no more present in the Berlese Collection. The original description and the coloured plate, although incomplete and incorrect in many details, can probably be identified when the species is collected at the type-locality (Vallombrosa).

Description and figure lead to the conclusion that the species has the habitus of a Lohmannia  , but that several important characters do not agree with the generic diagnosis. The genital covers, for instance, are figured as entire, whilst these are transversely divided in the genus Lohmannia  ; it is plausible to suppose, that Berlese overlooked the transverse line, but this has still to be proved. There are two pairs of anal hairs inserted on separate anal covers, just as in Lohmannia  ; Berlese figures, however, 6 pairs of adanal hairs, of which two probably do not belong to the adanal segment but to the notogaster.
