Proprioseiopsis dominigos  (El-Banhawy)

Amblyseius dominigos  El-Banhawy, 1984: 130; McMurtry & Moraes, 1989: 185; Moraes et al., 1991: 126; Feres & Moraes, 1989: 126.

Proprioseiopsis dominigos  . — Moraes et al., 1986: 114; 2004 b: 175; Gondim & Moraes, 2001: 81; Zacarias & Moraes, 2001: 582; Chant & McMurtry, 2005 a: 15; 2007: 89; Guanilo et al., 2008 b: 10.

Specimen examined. Pariquera-Açu, February 2001, 1 female on Cecropia  sp

Previous records. Brazil [States of Espírito Santo, Santa Catarina and São Paulo (Moraes et al., 2004); Mato Grosso (Demite et al., 2009); Goiás (Rezende & Lofego, 2011); Minas Gerais (Rezende & Lofego, 2012) and Roraima (Gondim Jr. et al., 2012)]; Colombia and Peru (Moraes et al., 2004 b).

Measurements of female (n= 1).

Dorsal shield 400 long and 310 wide. Setae j 1 27, j 3 110, j 4 3, J 5 3, j 6 5, j 5 6, z 2 21, z 4 37, z 5 5, Z 1 4, Z 4 127, Z 5 128, s 4 125, S 2 7, S 4 5, S 5 4 and r 3 12. Distances between St 1 - St 3 55, St 2 - St 2 70, St 5 - St 5 112. Ventrianal shield 122 long, 120 wide at level of ZV 2 and 100 wide at anus level. Movable cheliceral digit 29 long, with five teeth; fixed cheliceral digit 34 long, apparently with three teeth. Calyx of spermatheca 23 long. Leg macrosetae: Sge I 27, Sge II 22, Sge III 26, Sti III 29, Sge IV 47, Sti IV 32, St IV 52.

Remarks. The measurements of the single specimen collected fit the measurements previous provided by Moraes et al. (1991) for the holotype, except for the shorter z 4 (53 for the holotype). The longer z 4 was also mentioned by Moraes et al. (1991) for specimens from Colombia and by Guanilo et al. (2008 b) for specimens from Peru [57 and 44 (38–50) respectively]. Although the original description describes the dorsal shield as smooth, the specimen collected has striate dorsal shield, as also reported by Moraes et al. (1991).
