Carterica mima var. annulipes Belon, 1903: 69   .

The syntype of Carterica mima (Belon)   figured in Bezark (2017) shows the metatibiae as slender and long, while in the two other specimen photographs they are shorter and thicker ( Belon (1903) did not provide information on the tibial shape or sex of the syntypes). Additionally, differences can be noted in the shape of the pronotum including small spines or not at the lateral base. It is possible this is simply sexual dimorphism. However, this does not typically occur in other species of the group “ Sparna   / Carterica   ”, so only examination of a series of specimens will allow this to be defined.
