Traihoriella punjabensis Ansari, 1947: 290  .

Brueelia punjabensis ( Ansari), 1947  ; Hopkins & Clay, 1952: 60.

Type host. Psilopogon virens marshallorum Swinhoe, 1870  —great barbet. Type locality. Kulu , Punjab, India. 

Other host. Psilopogon virens virens (Boddaert, 1783)  —great barbet.

Description. Head shape, structure, and chaetotaxy as in genus description and Fig. 265View FIGURES 265 – 269. Displaced section of marginal carina not widened. Coni long and slender, reaching to distal margin of scapes. Preocular nodi large, quadratic. Postocular nodi large, rounded; pos located immediately posterior to eye. Thoracic and abdominal segments as in genus description and Figs 263–264View FIGURES 263 – 264. Pleural incrassations extensive, lateral to spiracle openings.

Male. Abdominal chaetotaxy as in Table 7 and Fig. 263View FIGURES 263 – 264; aps  present on segments V –VII. Basal apodeme constricted at mid-length ( Fig. 266View FIGURES 265 – 269), much wider proximally than distally. Proximal mesosome broad, anterior margin convergent. Gonopore ( Fig. 267View FIGURES 265 – 269) closed distally, terminal, with rugose proximal margin. Mesosomal lobes small, angular; 2 pmes microsetae on distal margin of lobes. Parameral heads ( Fig. 268View FIGURES 265 – 269) roughly quadratic. Parameral blades short, lobe-like, blunt; pst1–2 as in genus description. Measurements ex Psilopogon virens marshallorum  (n = 8): TL = 1.51–1.70; HL = 0.42–0.45; HW = 0.44–0.47; PRW = 0.27–0.30; PTW = 0.39–0.42; AW = 0.54–0.63.

Female. Abdominal chaetotaxy as in Table 7 and Fig. 264View FIGURES 263 – 264. Subgenital plate roughly trapezoidal, with wide median section reaching vulval margin ( Fig. 269View FIGURES 265 – 269). Vulval margin ( Fig. 269View FIGURES 265 – 269) bulging medianly, with 3–4 short, slender vms on each side, and 4–6 short, thorn-like vss on each side; 4–5 short, slender vos; distal vos median to vss. Measurements ex Psilopogon virens marshallorum  (n = 17): TL = 1.74–2.03 (1.88); HL = 0.43–0.49 (0.47); HW = 0.45–0.51 (0.48); PRW = 0.29–0.33 (0.31); PTW = 0.40–0.46 (0.43); AW = 0.61–0.73 (0.68).
