dc.description.abstract "The female of Cryptocellus magnus Ewing is redescribed and the male is described for the first time. Cryptocellus manni Ewing is shown to be based on a deutonymph of C. magnus and is newly synonymized with that species. The female allotype of Cryptocellus glenoides Cooke and Shadab is transferred to Cryptocellus isthmius Cooke and Shadab, and a specimen believed to represent the actual female of C. glenoides is described. Scanning electron micrographs show that the surface of the 'ocelli' of ricinuleids is coated with cuticular projections and that the 'ocelli' cannot function as lenses"--P. [1]. en_US
