Orphnebius alesi ASSING , 2010


Orphnebius alesi ASSING, 2010  

M a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d China: 1♀, Yunnan, mountains S Jianshui, 23°25'N, 102°51'E, 1890 m, subtropical broad-leaved forest, litter sifted, 22.VIII.2014, leg. Schülke (cSch).

C o m m e n t: The original description of O. alesi   is based on a unique male from the Gaoligong Shan ( ASSING 2010). The above female is highly similar to the holotype based on external characters. The previously unknown spermatheca is similar to that of other species of the O. hauseri   group.
