A new troglobitic schizomid (Hubbardiidae: Paradraculoides) from the Pilbara region, Western Australia

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 6 months ago

ABSTRACT – A new species of Hubbardiidae, Paradraculoides eremius sp. nov., is described from Bungaroo, Pilbara, Western Australia based on male and female specimens collected from troglofauna traps. Although similar in form to other Paradraculoides known from the Pilbara bioregion, it has a distinctive male flagellum which is distally rounded rather than tapering to a point as in other species. It is known from only a small area of less than 10 km2 in the Hamersley Range.
