Salina beta Christiansen and Bellinger, 1980 

Salina beta Christiansen & Bellinger 1980: 1103  , 1104, 1106, Fig. 819 (California, USA), original description and key. Yoshii 1983: 16, key, new species group. Hall 1988: 141, on sugarcane (Florida, USA), possibly a misidentification, see remarks under S. bidentata  . Christiansen & Bellinger 1998: 1125, 1126, 1128, Fig. 819, key and description.

Material Examined: USA. California, Stanislaus Co., Modesto; lawn; 29 September 1961; H. Sinclair, coll. Holotype on one slide, California Department of Agriculture # 61 J 2–105, deposited at the California Academy of Sciences (entomology type # 15020).

Description: The following additions to the description of the species are based on the holotype. Length of holotype 1.1 mm. Colour pattern not seen but originally described as shown in Fig. 42View FIGURES 34 – 42. Ant. 1 with 2 dorsal macrosetae. Prelabral setae 2. Postlabial column CG obstructed, but apparently all setae ciliate. Tergal macrochaetotaxy of Th. 2 –Abd. 2 as 4, 6, 4, 2 ( Figs. 25–26View FIGURES 25 – 33): chaetotaxy of Th. 3 and Abd. 1 arranged as in S. bidentata  . Abd. 4 with 4 posterior setae. Trochanteral organ with 13 + 14 setae. Unguis with only one distal unpaired tooth. Collophore anterior face with 3 macro- and 3 microsetae; lateral setae 15; posterior face with 1 + 1 setae. Proportions of dens/manubrium≈ 1, proportion dental vesicle/mucro ≈ 1. Mucro with basal dorsal denticle.

Remarks: Salina beta  has a unique colour pattern that distinguishes it from all other New World species. In chaetotaxy S. beta  is intermediate between S. wolcotti  / ventricolor  and bidentata  / thibaudi  , as shown in Table 1.
