Subfamily Oltacolinae Roewer 1934

 


 

Subfamily Oltacolinae Roewer 1934

Oltacolinae Roewer, 1934: 607 Adobe PDF icon; Mello-Leitão, 1938b: 26-27; Muma, 1976: 29.

Diagnosis:  Roewer (1934) diagnosed the subfamily as follows:

 "Ammotrechidae, deren 2. und 3. Tarsus jeweils 2-gliedrig und deren 4. Tarsus 4-gliedrig ist; 2. und 3. Tibia dorsal mit je 1 Enddorn, ventral-apikal mit 1.2 Dornborsten. Das erste Glied des 2. und 3. Tarsus ist doppelt so lang wie das zweite, und das erste Glied des 4. Tarsus ist so lang wie die untereinander gleichlangen drei letzten Glieder zusammen (Abb. 342, b, c)."

[Ammotrechidae, whose 2nd and 3rd tarsi are each 2-segmented and whose 4th tarsi are 4-segmented; the 2nd and 3rd tibiae always bear 1 dorsal terminal spine and bear 1.2 spinelike bristles ventroapically . The first segment of the 2nd and 3rd tarsi is twice as long as the second, and the first segment of the 4th tarsus is as long as the three remaining segments (equal to each other in length)  together (Fig. 342, b, c).]

Figs. 342b and 342c.  Oltacola gomezi Roewer. 1934.  342 b: Leg II, distal segments.  342c - Leg IV, distal segments.
