Remarks. The measurements of the specimens collected fit the original description, except for the longer Z 5 (56 in the original description), as also reported for specimens collected in Brazil (Moraes & McMurtry 1983; Feres & Moraes, 1998; Lofego et al. 2004; 2009), Peru (Guanilo et al. 2008 b) and Argentina (Guanilo et al. 2008 c). In contrast to what has been mentioned in previous papers for specimens from the State of São Paulo (Feres & Moraes, 1998; Lofego et al. 2004; 2009), the specimens collected in this work do not have z 4, Z 4, Z 5 and s 4 particularly longer than reported in the original description. In those previous publications, these were reported to be about 1.5 times as long as reported in the original description.
