Two-year life cycle and low palpal

Morphological descriptions of antennal, palpal
and tarsal sensilla provide the basis for understanding mole cricket chemosensory input.
Diagnosis: The male is characterised by the structure of the palpal
organs, particularly by a small acute process at the base of the cymbium on the retrolateral side (Figs 13-15).
The Cuban specimens of Pseudochiridium insulae have the measurements and proportions of palpal
segments very similar to the specimens from Florida, USA described by Hoff (1964), the length/width of the chela (without pedicel) 0.
Palpus dark brown; third segment cylindrical with subapical sensory pit; fifth segment as long as third; palpal

Theraphosids male courtship mainly consists in palpation, palpal
