Diagnosis

According to the original description, the male imago of Macunahyphes incognitus  can be distinguished from all congeners by the following combination of characteristics: 1) fore wings with hyaline membrane except around basal half of vein Sc, shaded with gray; 2) styliger with a pair of sublateral acute projections on the hind margin; 3) penes completely fused apically, with subquadrate base, narrowing abruptly in median zone, and with a ventral projection.

Material examined

Holotype

BRAZIL: ♁, imago (genitalia), Pará, rio Xingú, Campament , ca 60 km S of Altamira, 3°39′ S, 52°22′ W, 1–21 Oct. 1986, P. Spangler & O. Flint leg. ( INPA).GoogleMaps 

Remarks

Macunahyphes incognitus  was described based on only one specimen and since then there has been no further record of this species. The forceps are unknown and we only had access to the holotype genitalia. Because of this, the comparisons between species were made based on the genitalia slide and original description.
