Dinelytron unilineatus ( Redtenbacher, 1906)  comb. nov.

Fig. 26A, CView Fig.

Damasippus unilineatus Redtenbacher, 1906: 149  ; Brock et al., 2017 ( Phasmatodea  world catalog).

Examined material. Lectotype _ ( Fig. 26AView Fig) (present designation, examined by photo): “Mus. Caes. Vind., Neu Freibrug [Nova Friburgo, Rio de Janeiro], Bras. [ Brazil], Thorey”, “ det. Redtenb. [acher], D. unilineatus  ” ( MNHN France). 

Paralectotype _ ( Fig. 26CView Fig) (present designation, examined by photo): same as holotype.

Diagnosis. Posterior wing with basal and medial third of costal area copper-colored ( Fig. 26A-CView Fig). Vomer with basal third widened, gradually narrowing towards apex, without lateral indentation ( Fig. 26BView Fig).

Type condition. Lectotype (present designation): in good conditions, except for the fact that the body is covered entirely by fungi.

Paralectotype (present designation): missing approximately half the length of the left antenna. Left anterior and posterior legs both missing. Body covered by fungus.

Geographical records. Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, Nova Friburgo.

Remarks. This species was transferred from Damasippus  to Dinelytron  due to the types (the only known specimens) having the head opaque, dorsally flattened and posterior wing with anal area entirely hyaline, characters that are diagnostic of Dinelytron  .
