Abstract

Abnormalities in the morphological structures of Platynothrus bicarinatus Jacot, 1938 are presented and illustrated. A comparison with normally developed specimen of this species is included. Abnormal adult differs from other specimens by highier number of notogastral, anal, adanal setae and variance of leg setation. One abnormal specimen was found in USA, New Mexico, in a leaf and log litter of Pseudotsuga menziesti-Pinus ponderosa forest, at 2390 m a. s.l.
