Trichobius new species #1


Trichobius new species #1, habitus Trichobius new species #1, head Trichobius new species #1, thorax Trichobius new species #1, sternum
Specimens examined: La Selva: 12m 19f from Tonatia saurophila.
Additional records: La Selva: 7m 12f "undescribed species of Trichobius" from Tonatia bidens (Timm et al., 1989). Tonatia bidens is a junior synonym of Tonatia saurophila (Timm and LaVal, 1998). Although we have not compared our Trichobius specimens to those of Timm et al., we suspect they will prove to be conspecific.
