REMARKS

Like T. monomaculata   , T. vivieni   was originally described in Microparonella   , transferred to Lepidonella   by Deharveng & Bedos (1995) and moved to Trogolaphysa   by Soto-Adames & Bellini (2015).

Trogolaphysa vivieni   is characterized by a uniformly whitish body, with characteristic blue pigment on the basal half of antennomeres 2-3, all antennomere 4 and metathoracic trochanter; scales present on antennomeres 1-3 and on coxae, trochanter, and femur of all legs; tenet hair long and weakly spatulate; unguis with 3 inner teeth, paired teeth subequal; unguiculus lanceolate; dens with two rows of spines; mucro long, with 5 teeth, apical tooth much longer than all basal teeth.

This is the only white African species with dark blue pigment limited to the antennae and metatrochanter, and a five toothed mucro with a distinctly long apical tooth.
