Maculinirmus mundus  (Nitzsch [in Giebel], 1866)

( Figs 196–202View FIGURES 196 – 197View FIGURES 198 – 202)

Nirmus mundus Nitzsch  [in Giebel], 1866: 366.

Degeeriella munda  (Nitzsch [in Giebel], 1866); Harrison, 1916: 118. Brueelia munda  (Nitzsch [in Giebel], 1866); Hopkins & Clay, 1952: 58. Maculinirmus mundus  (Nitzsch [in Giebel], 1866); Złotorzycka, 1964a: 248.

Type host. Oriolus oriolus ( Linnaeus, 1758)  —Eurasian golden oriole. Type locality. None given, probably Germany. 

Description. Both sexes. Head shape, structure, and chaetotaxy as in genus description and Fig. 198View FIGURES 198 – 202. Ventral anterior plate somewhat elongate. Preantennal nodi slender. Gular plate broad, short, with prominent median point. Head largely translucent, except preantennal, pre- and postocular nodi, gular plate, and parts of mandibles with dark pigmentation. Thoracic and abdominal segments as in genus description and Figs 196–197View FIGURES 196 – 197. Body almost entirely translucent, except proepimera, metepisterna; lateral tergopleurites III –VIII with dark pigmentation. Tergopleurite II in some specimens with slight dark pigmentation laterally.

Male. Abdominal chaetotaxy as in Table 2 and Fig. 196View FIGURES 196 – 197. Male genitalia typical for genus ( Fig. 199View FIGURES 198 – 202). Basal apodeme rounded rectangular. Proximal mesosome gently rounded, short. Gonopore ( Fig. 200View FIGURES 198 – 202) as subparallel convergent submedian thickenings, widely open proximally and moderately open distally. Mesosomal lobes wide, short, rounded; 2 pmes sensilla visible on each lobe proximally and 1 pmes visible distally; distal pmes may be microseta. Parameral heads ( Fig. 201View FIGURES 198 – 202) folded into distinct U-shape, overlapping with basal apodeme. Parameral blades wide, blunt; pst1–2 as in genus description. Measurements ex Oriolus oriolus  (n = 7): TL = 1.30–1.42; HL = 0.37–0.40; HW = 0.34–0.37; PRW = 0.21–0.24; PTW = 0.31–0.34; AW = 0.43–0.48.

Female. Abdominal chaetotaxy as in Table 2 and Fig. 197View FIGURES 196 – 197. Subgenital plate vaguely pigmented, gently rounded distally ( Fig. 202View FIGURES 198 – 202). Vulval margin ( Fig. 202View FIGURES 198 – 202) gently rounded, with 5–6 short, slender vms on each side, and 7–8 (one specimen with 12–14) short, thorn-like vss on each side; 7–8 long, slender vos on each side; distal 3–4 vos form transverse row just proximal of vss. Measurements ex Oriolus oriolus  (n = 15): TL = 1.54–1.69 (1.60); HL = 0.38–0.43 (0.41); HW = 0.37–0.42 (0.39); PRW = 0.22–0.27 (0.24); PTW = 0.35–0.40 (0.37); AW = 0.49–0.59 (0.53).

Remarks. Due to the lack of pigmentation of this species, the exact extent of sternal plates is very difficult to ascertain, and have been illustrated here as accurately as possible.
