status

 

Punctoribates palustris (Banks, 1895) 

Syn.: Punctoribates manzanoensis Hammer, 1958 sensu Murvanidze & Kvavadze 2009  , Murvanidze et al. 2011 a; Punctoribates (Minguezetes) insignis Berlese, 1910 sensu Shtanchaeva & Subias 2010 

Distribution in Georgia. W: Kolkheti National Park (Murvanidze et al. 2011)

Global distribution. Holarctic

Ecology. Bogs and flooded forests

Remark. Presence of M. hexagonus Berlese, 1908  is indicated in the Catalogue after Tarba (1976). After examination of this paper we have not found this species in the list and did not include it in the checklist. Moreover, Punctoribates hexagonus  is frequently confused with P. palustris  because of anterior notogastral tectum; however it is smaller in size and also tarsus II of P. palustris  bears one dorsal tooth, whereas Hammer (1958) described and illustrated two dorsal teeth on tarsus II of P. manzanoensis (Behan-Pelletier & Eamer 2008)  . Genus Minguezetes  was proposed by Subías et al. (1990), but Weigmann (2006) and Behan-Pelletier & Eamer (2008) do not agree with this statement, because of insufficient differential characters. We also provide genus Punctoribates  as a valid for P. palustris  .
