Rhysotritia granulata Mahunka 1999

I examined once again the paratype in alcohol.

Diagnosis — Measurements of paratype: prodorsum: length 252, height 106; notogaster: length 505, height 384.

All characters the same as A. vestita   . Only irregular, probably mineralization patterns as "the ornamentation by secretion granules partly forming a polygonal reticulation" of surface of body ( Mahunka 1999) distinguish A. granulata ( Mahunka 1999)   from A. vestita   .

Locality in Madagascar (central part): Mahunka 1999, Niedbała 2001.

Distribution — Afrotropical, found only in Madagascar, endemic.
