scientific name

Eviulisoma iuloideum
status

 

The iuloideum   group

Diagnosis

Species of Eviulisoma   in which sternum 6 is deeply excavated with unlobed margins, the gonopod acropodite has a separate basal ʻfemoriteʼ part, there is no intermediate acropodital process and the solenophore is a large, unrolled sheet without apical lobes.

Included species:

E. iuloideum ( Verhoeff, 1941)  

E. articulatum   sp. nov.

This group corresponds to the genus Himatiopus Verhoeff, 1941   . The description of E. iuloideum   by Verhoeff (1941) is quite good, and the similarity with E. articulatum   sp. nov. is obvious. An examination of the type material of Himatiopus iuloideus   confirmed the similarity but also confirmed that the two species are indeed different.

E. lanceolatum Attems, 1953   (Congo) also seems to have an articulated acropodite, but the solenophore is quite different ( Jeekel 2003); hence, E. laceolatum   is not regarded as a member of the iuloideum   group.
