REMARKS

The only citations for this form are the original description, and its transfer to Dicranocentruga by Mitra (2002c). The species remains poorly characterized, but the shape of the mucro and absence of manubrial spines suggest it should be placed in Trogolaphysa   . The Congolese species was described as uniformly yellow, with brown legs; a long spatulate tenent hair; unguis with four inner teeth; lanceolate unguiculus; dens with one row of spines; and four-toothed mucro.

Among African Trogolaphysa   , this appears to be the only uniformly yellow species with four inner ungual teeth and paired teeth inserted on the basal half of the claw.
