Spiracle and trichobothrium
on the 6th abdominal segment.
7) almost elliptic, setose; sensory fields with eight trichobothria on basal rosettes and one marginal trichobothrium
, without basal rosette.
Paraprocts of two pieces, the proximal one joining the clunium, sensory fields with 14 trichobothria on basal rosettes, and one marginal trichobothrium
without basal rosette; distal piece with a small sclerotized prong, distally truncate (Figs.
The following abbreviations are used: asl, attenuate solenidion; bsl, blunt ended solenidion; sts, simple tactile setae; T, trichobothrium
Trichobothrial pattern: neobothriotaxic major type C, with one accessory trichobothrium
in the V series of chela; femur with 3 trichobothria (1 d,1 i and 1 e); patella with 19 trichobothria (3 V, 2 d, 1 i, 3 et, 1 est, 2 em, 2 esb, and 5 eb); chela with 27 trichobothria (1 Est, 5 Et, 5 V, 1 Esb, 3 Eb, 1 Dt, 1 Db, 1 et, 1 est, 1 esb, 1 eb, 1 dt, 1 dst, 1 dsb, 1 db, 1 ib, 1 it).
The slender trichobothrium
(Tr) arises vertically from a prominent socket; the stronger tactile hair (T) emerges obliquely from a less-developed socket.
In our specimen has been imposible to determine the position of the second trichobothrium
because the absence of the chaetae and the similarity of the sockets.
8a), metarsi with one trichobothrium
in a subapical position and tarsus without trichobothria.
2] were clearly visible under ultraviolet fluorescence microscopy, but were more difficult to resolve under reflected light microscopy and this may have led to erroneous reports of the loss of this petite trichobothrium
with dorsal plate with few transverse grooves projected over a smooth basal plate (Fig.
9-14) (Vachon 1973, 1975); femoral trichobothrium
11); only et trichobothrium
is located between db and dt on pedipalp fixed finger, and est is located beside db (Fig.
