Distribution. Brazil (Bahia [new record], Espírito Santo [new record], Minas Gerais [new record] and Rio de Janeiro states) ( Fig. 39View FIGURE 39).

Remarks. Xiphocentron maracanan  can be differentiated from its congeners by the posterior margin of tergum IX, which has acute lobes separated by a deep V-shaped incision ( Figs 32, 35, 37View FIGURES 32–38); and the inferior appendage with an angulate, elbow-shaped region covered with small spines on the inner face, and bearing a small mesal sclerite ( Figs 33, 34, 36, 38View FIGURES 32–38).

Some variations were found in the specimens studied. The morphotypes from Bahia state (forewing length 3.6–3.7 mm) have a slightly broader preanal appendage than the morphotypes collected in other states ( Figs 32–34View FIGURES 32–38). The morphotype from Espírito Santo state (forewing length 3.7 mm) has the inferior appendage slightly shorter ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 32–38). Some specimens from Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais states have a narrowing region immediately beyond the nygma in forewing fork II ( Figs 29–30View FIGURES 27–31), in Minas Gerais state (forewing length 3.4–3.5 mm), in the same location, specimens with and without the narrowing region in fork II were found, showing that there is a variation in this character. This narrowing region forming a small cell enclosing the nygma on the forewing was described for X. acqualume  , X. jaguare  , X. steffeni  , and X. ilionea  and is also present in some Oriental species of Cnodocentron  ( C. brogimarus Malicky & Chantaramongkol 1992  , C. tchaturbhuja Schmid 1982  , and C. vrisaparvan Schmid 1982  ).
