New Zealand Archaeoteleia  HNS  species incertae sedis

Two female specimens from the North Island (TK, Mt Egmont; 21 km N of Ohura ) are very close to A. novaezealandiae  HNS  but differ in several small ways.  They are somewhat smaller (3.8, 4.0 mm long), lack strongly angulate epomial corners at the end of the transverse pronotal carina, and have slightly weaker sculpture on the metasomal tergites than South Island specimens. We exclude them from A. novaezealandiae  HNS  but prefer not to erect a new species until more material, including males, is obtained.
