Paraeumigus parvulus (Bolivar, 1907) 

Material examined. Morocco, ex Vaucher, 1 ♂ 3 ♀ syntypes; Morocco, High Atlas, Tsauritz Entzagoutz, 1 ♂, 1 ♀ (MNCN); Morocco, High Atlas, Tizi-n-Tuagane 10. VII.1937, 1 ♀ (BMCP); Morocco, High Atlas, Asni V.1931, 1 ♂, 1 ♀; High Atlas, Arround, V.1931, 1 ♀ (MZR).

The type locality is unknown; labels on syntypes report only the name of the collector (Vaucher); La Greca (1993) considered that the type locality should be in the western High Atlas. This very small species (Table 3) is characterized by flat pronotum and low pronotum keel ( Figs. 133View FIGURES 123 – 148. 123 – 145, 160View FIGURES 149 – 160); the phallic complex shows very short apex of aedeagus valves, that are wide and not pedunculate; the basal part shows 4–5 columnar keels per side ( Fig. 134View FIGURES 123 – 148. 123 – 145). Mesosternal space in females is 1.5 –2.0 times wider than long, and metasternal space 2.0– 2.5 times wider than long ( Fig. 159View FIGURES 149 – 160).
