Discussion:

Fig 9, V-Z.

The description given by L^rban is quite complete, though the dimensions given for the length of the head are longer than in any of our specimens, which are all about 5 m m long (as against 6 m m in Urban's description). The presence of this species in Hispaniola is doubtful, cited only from one collection. The recent explorations have completely failed to locate it.
