Dilta Saxicola, Womersley 1930
This Irish species can be told from other British Dilta species by the arrangement of spines on the second segment of the labial palp. Females can be split from Dilta hibernica by the number of segments in the sexual gonapophyses, but not yet from D littoralis or D chateri.
Order Archeognatha, Family Machilidae , Genus Dilta
Appears to be restricted to Ireland, Delaney (1954) has it as 'Houth Head, Dublin'
Typically more inland than the coastal petrobius species
