          Abstract

          The first record of Nothoaspis reddelli (nymph) in Nicaragua is presented. The morphological characters used for the determination were dorsum with a false shield or nothoaspis, presence of an anteriorly projecting hood covering half of the capitulum, medial extension of palpal article I (flaps), presence of two large setae on internal margins of flaps, leg coxae with numerous long setae, and hypostome long and pointed with apical dentition 4/4. The 16S rDNA sequence of N. reddelli from Nicaragua was identical to the 16S sequence of N. reddelli from Mexico.
