Myrsidea dalgleishi Valim, Price & Johnson, 2011  

Myrsidea   sp. 2; Sychra et al. 2007: 123, fig. 13.

Myrsidea dalgleishi Valim, Price & Johnson, 2011: 10   , figs 28–29, 33–35.

Type host. Glyphorynchus spirurus (Vieillot, 1819)   —wedge-billed woodcreeper.

Type locality. San José, Tinamaste , 12 km SW San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica.  

Material examined. Ex Glyphorynchus spirurus   : 1♀, Barbilla National Park, Provincia Limón, Costa Rica (09°59'N, 85°27'W), 3 September 2004, I. Literak, M. Capek & M. Havlicek ( INBIO—O. Sychra CR 10). GoogleMaps  

Remarks. Here we confirm that a female described as “ Myrsidea   sp. 2” by Sychra et al. (2007) is conspecific with M. dalgleishi   originally described from G. spirurus   from a different location in Costa Rica. Our specimen differ from the original description of M. dalgleishi   by setal counts and dimensions, as follows [data from Valim et al. (2011) are in parentheses]:

Female (n = 1). Length of dhs 10, 0.065 (0.03); dhs 11, 0.102 (0.09); ratio dhs 10/11, 0.64 (0.33). Gula with 5– 6 (4–5) setae on each side. Tergal setae: II, 12 (8–10); IV, 12 (9–11); VI, 7 (10–11); VII, 4 (7–8); VIII, 4 (5–6). Sternal setae: IV, 26 (22–24); VI, 23 (19–21). Dimensions: TW, 0.42 (0.41); PW, 0.26 (0.24–0.25); AWIV, 0.53 (0.50–0.51).
