Trogolaphysa wahlgreni ( Mitra, 2002)   n. comb.

Dicranocentruga wahlgreni Mitra, 2002c: 109-113   , figs 1-3, 5 (Meru, Kenya).

Paronella nigromaculata   – Wahlgren 1908: 2, 4, 6-8 (wrong identification).

REMARKS

Mitra (2002c) described this species based on material Wahlgren (1908) identified as P. nigromaculata   .

This species is characterized by being uniformly yellow or white, with pigment only on eye patch; labral papillae present; anterior head chaetotaxy with one unpaired (A0) and six paired (A2, A3, A5, M2, S3, S5) macrochaetae, posterior chaetotaxy with one paired macrochaeta (Pa5); mesothorax to 4 th abdominal segment with 60/0114 inner macrochaetae; tenet hair long, strongly spatulate; unguis with 3 inner teeth, paired teeth inserted near middle of claw, one paired tooth slightly longer than other; unguiculus lanceolate; dens with one row of spines; mucro square, quadridentate.

This is a typical Trogolaphysa   , and very similar to T. judithnajtae   n. sp. (see diagnosis for that species). The original body macrochaetae map for abdominal segments 2-4 published by Mitra (2002c: 113) confounds symbols for macrochaetae and pseudopores, but once the confusion is resolved, the inner chaetotaxy is typical Trogolaphysa   .

This is the only African species uniformly white or yellow having head macrochaetae M2 and S5, labral papillae, unguis with three inner teeth and one row of spines on dens.
