Abstract

The tiny caddid harvestman Acropsopilio chomulae (Goodnight & Goodnight 1948), from Chiapas, Mexico, has been known only from the immature holotype. Mature females are described from specimens taken near the type locality. The absence of spermathecae in the ovipositor makes it likely that the species is parthenogenic.

RESUMEN

Hasta el momento, los únicos datos disponibles del pequeño opilión Acropsopilio chomulae (Goodnight & Goodnight 1948) de Chiapas (México) proceden del estudio del holotipo, un ejemplan inmaduro. En este trabajo se describen hembras maduras procedentes de cerca de localidad tipica. La ausencia de espermateca en el oviscapto sugiere que la especie es partenogenética.
