status

 

Florarctus  sp. 2

Material examined: Four specimens from site 11. Two females (body lengths of 215 and 223 µm long) and 2 individuals of unknown gender (178 and 185 µm long).

Remarks: Alae with caesti can be seen in these specimens, but the shape of the alae and caesti differs from those of Florarctus  sp. 1. However, in all specimens of Florarctus  sp. 2, the caudal ala is folded and cannot be adequately described. Thus, we are not able to identify these specimens to species level.
