Meotica andujari  ASSING, 2007 ( Figs 69-73View Figs 69-79)

Meotica andujari  ASSING, 2007: 769 ff.

T y p e m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: SeeASSING (2007).

A d d i t i o n a l m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: SPAIN: 1♀, Murcia, Moratalla, Rio Alharabe , 12.X.2002, leg. Lencina (cAss). 

C o m m e n t: The original description is based on twelve type specimens from the Sierra de Espuña and the Sierra de Segura in South Spain.

D i a g n o s i s: Coloration of body uniformly yellowish, i.e., abdomen not infuscate; hind wings completely reduced.

♂: sternite VIII ( Fig. 69View Figs 69-79) moderately transverse, posterior margin convex; median lobe of aedeagus ( Figs 70-71View Figs 69-79) approximately 0.33 mm long; ventral process straight in basal portion (lateral view); apical lobe of paramere blackish.

♀: sternite VIII ( Fig. 72View Figs 69-79) indistinctly transverse, posterior margin convex, in the middle concave; spermatheca as in Fig. 73View Figs 69-79.

The aedeagus is somewhat similar to those of M. moczarskii  and M. wunderlei  , but distinguished by larger size, a longer, practically straight (lateral view), and apically truncate (ventral view) ventral process. The spermatheca is of the M. parasita  type (like that of M. moczarskii  ), but distinguished by a longer and more slender distal portion. For additional illustrations see ASSING (2007).

D i s t r i b u t i o n: SouthSpain.
