, ventral view; c left third maxilliped, lateral view; d telson, external view.
without discal setae, sternite
with exceptional long posterior marginal setae (Fig.
2 to 6 rectangular, sternites
7 and 8 membranous, all sternites
covered with setae and scales, trichoid sensilla absent.
The family is characterised by the absence of trichobothria on the antennae; the presence of mostly symmetrical, unsegmented chitinous hooks at tip of abdomen; a maximum of four placoid sensilla on terminal article of antennae; thorax with two pairs of spiracles on sternites
II and III; abdominal sternite
1 with a pair of styles and a pair of lateral subcoxal organs.
There are two setae row on the sternites
. Post-spiracular seta IV is shorter than the others.
himalayensis holotype.--Color: Base color reddish brown, with a variegated pattern in carapace, legs, tergites, sternites
, and metasoma; however, in most parts of the body, this pattern is faded (presumably owing to poor preservation).
2) corroborated, once again, that the alcohol (DTOH) is extracted only from the abdominal region of the termite, specifically from the ventral sternites
8): Tergite IX and X fused, forming large wide plate, with two pairs of long lateral setae and four pairs of thin fine posterior submarginal setae; subgenital plate large, formed by sternites
VII to XI, posterior margin with median short process, bearing latero-posterior setae; terminal segment with 01 pair of long lateral seta and 04 posterior submarginal + two marginal setae.
Al analizar algunas especies del genero que ocurren en Peru, Grados (2004) menciono que los machos presentan organos androconiales en forma de penacho de pelos alargados en las areas antero-laterales de los sternites
abdominales IV, V, VI y VII.
2-7 sclerotized, rectangular, with two rows of setae, many setae mesally, few setae laterally, basal pair of trichoid sensilla, and scattered scales; sternite
8 sclerotized, squarish, with setae from midlength to distal margin, basal pair of trichoid sensilla, and scattered scales.
In this case, adult pseudoscorpions attach themselves to the abdominal sternites
of the fly Fannia canicularis (Linnaeus, 1761) (Lira et al., 2014).
I setulose; sternites
II-V at fore margin each with a widely spaced pair of alpha-sensilla; sternites
Ill and IV with a pair of strong hind marginal setae.
