RARE OR POORLY KNOWN CARIBBEAN ORTHOPTERANS. PART 1. THE TRUE GENERIC IDENTITY OF HYGRONEMOBIUS HISTRIONICUS ZAYAS, 1976 (ORTHOPTERA: TRIGONIDIIDAE: NEMOBIINAE)

Sheyla Yong

Abstract


The Cuban endemic Hygronemobius histrionicus Zayas, 1976 is revised. As a result, a new genus is described to accommodate this species, which is redescribed and further data are given on its morphology, morphometry and ecology. Moreover, the type locality is clarified from the original labels of the syntypes. The paper includes a thorough illustrative complement, with color photographs of habitus, taxonomically diagnostic characters and habitat, as well as a precise distribution map.
