Glomeris numidia Verhoeff, 1921: 28   (D), syn. n.!

Glomeris numidia   – Schubart 1953: 218 (L).

Glomeris punica   – Schubart 1953: 218 (L).

Type material: Tunisia, Bou-Kournine (now Bou Kornine), date?, leg.?, ♁ lectotype of G. punica Attems, 1900   (here designated) ( NHMW 3910), paralectotypes: 5 ♁, 1 ♀ ( NHMW 3910). The designation of a lectotype (of 60 syntypes, see Attems 1900) seems advisable in order to ensure that the name-bearing type shows the diagnostically important characteristics of the male sex   .

Algeria, Gorges de la Chiffa, date?, leg. H. Ribaut, 2 ♁ syntypes of Glomeris numidia Verhoeff, 1921   (♁ “type”, ZSM A20070944 + micropreparation A 20032086 and ♁ “?type”, A 20091438). Both ♁♁ represent only part of the type series stated to have consisted of 2 ♁ and 2 ♀ ( Verhoeff 1921)   .

Short description: Length up to 12 mm, width up to 6.0 mm. Coloration light to dark brown, terga 2-11 each with 2+2, rather vague, paramedian spots; pattern as in Fig. 27 View Figure 27 . ♁ legs 17, 18 and 19 (telopods) as in Figs 28 View Figure 28 A-F. An always high lateral lobe of ♁ coxite 17 is remarkable ( Fig. 28A View Figure 28 ).

Remarks: This species belongs to the “ Stenopleuromeris   ” type. Schubart (1963) mistakenly attributed it to the “ Eurypleuromeris   ” type.
