Melanterius  sp. near M. acaciae 

In the ANIC there are two females of an undescribed species similar to M. acaciae  but larger and differing in setation and the shape of the rostrum, legs and unci, labelled as found feeding on Acacia subulata  ( Table 1). In want of more material, especially males, we do not describe this species here.
