Diagnosis. Males of Strotarchus piscatorius  resemble those of S. gandu  n. sp. and S. minor  by the wide, ventrally placed proximal fold of the reservoir, and those of S. silvae  n. sp. by the extremely developed cymbium. They differ by the subtriangular course of the proximal fold of the reservoir and by the conspicuous, oblong tegular apophysis ( Figs. 106, 107View FIGURES 106 – 113). Females resemble those of S. gandu  n. sp. by the median notch on the posterior atrial margin,
