Pseudotritia hyeroglyphica


Pseudotritia hyeroglyphica   (Berlese, 1916)

Tritia lentula var. hyeroglyphica Berlese   , 1916b, p. 337.

I have not seen the type-specimen of the present species, which was collected in Italian Somaliland. Slide no. 216/9 from Portici (Italy) contains, according to the label, also the " variety " hyeroglyphica   , together with the species; I think that in this case the " variety " is possibly an old specimen of P. ardua   .

Nothing can therefore be said about the type of hyeroglyphica   . I have listed it here as a Pseudotritia   species, the identity of which is uncertain.
