P. mina Shimabukuro, Pepinelli & Trivinho-Strixino, 2017 

Remarks.

P. mina  was recorded for the first time on marginal bedrock of a mountain stream, at 1270 m a.s.l. (20°25'12"S, 41°50'45.6"W), in Serra do Caparaó ( Espírito Santo State) ( Trivinho-Strixino et al. 2012), but only larvae have been evidenced and the description was only possible after the molecular association with the adults ( Shimabukuro et al. 2017b). P. mina  was recorded in isolated seepages and rocky substrate in the stream edges from 2575-2700 m a.s.l. in APASM (Minas Gerais State) ( Shimabukuro et al. 2017b). Water temperature varied from 15-22 °C; dissolved oxygen 6.4-10.2 mg.l-1; pH 5.0-5.5; fast water flow; vegetal coverage completely absent Significant altitudinal specificity have been found (IndVal: 0.41; p = 0.04).
