Draculoides mesozeirus Harvey, Berry, Edward and Humphreys 2008: 182–183   , figs. 10, 25–28; Abrams et al. 2019 MPE 106532: 8, fig. 2.

Material examined. Holotype female. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: Middle Robe (Borehole M 2ERC027, trap 1), 23.5 km E of Pannawonica, 21°41’5”S, 116°32’27”E, March–May 2005, M. Greenham, D. Kamien and L. Mould ( WAM T 63329 View Materials ). GoogleMaps  

Paratypes. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: 1 ♀, same data as holotype ( WAM T 63330 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   ; 1 ♀, Middle Robe, Borehole M 2ERC034, 23.3 km E of Pannawonica , 21°41’4”S, 116°32’21”E, March–May 2005, M. Greenham, D. Kamien and L. Mould ( WAM T 63328 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   .

Other material. AUSTRALIA: Western Australia: See Harvey et al. (2008); Abrams et al. (2019).

Diagnosis. Males are unknown. Draculoides mesozeirus   is phylogenetically ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 ) and geographically ( Fig. 1D View FIGURE 1 ) most closely related to D. carmillae   , D. claudiae   and D. nosferatu   . It differs from D. carmillae   in the posterior position of flagellar seta dl 1 in relation to vl1 (dl1 is anterior to vl 1 in D. carmillae   ). It differs from D. nosferatu   in the short, broad shape of the gonopod (elongated, rectangular gonopod in D. nosferatu   ). It is currently not possible to distinguish D. mesozeirus   from D. claudiae   on morphology alone because adults of D. claudiae   are unknown and juvenile morphology is not distinctive. Draculoides mesozeirus   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at COI and 12S by the 50bp mini-barcodes shown in Figures 3 View FIGURE 3 and 5 View FIGURE 5 . Draculoides mesozeirus   can be diagnosed from all other Draculoides   species that were sequenced at ITS2 ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ) except for D. nosferatu   , D. claudiae   and D. carmillae   , which are not distinguishable using the ITS2 mini-barcode.

Description. See Harvey et al. (2008).

Remarks. Draculoides mesozeirus   is restricted to one of the un-named Middle Robe mesas, located between the mesas inhabited by D. claudiae   and D. carmillae   , situated east of Pannawonica in the Pilbara region of Western Australia ( Fig. 1D View FIGURE 1 ).
