(018/HYman) Hypogastrura manubrialis (Tullberg, 1869)

 

*mucronalis (Bagnall, 1941)

*neglecta (Börner, 1901) [VARIETY OF Hypogastrura manubrialis WITH NO ANAL SPINES]

*schoetti (Reuter, 1895)

This is a common and widespread species. Most records are from compost and rich organic matter. Each tibiotarsus only has one clavate tenant seta and the empodium of the foot tapers gradually and does not possess a lamella (Fig. 1). In Hypogastrura manubrialis the maxillary lamella 1 has an expanded 'double-ciliated' apex (Figs. 2, 3). The body setae are short and of similar length (Fig. 6) and the mucro is distinctively long and pointed (Fig. 7).
