Diagnosis

Camelobaetidius ipaye   differs from the other described species of the genus with the terminal filament reduced based on the following combination of characteristics in nymphs: (1) segment II of labial palp with distomedial projection slightly produced (Figure 26); (2) forefemur with prominent protuberance on inner margin ( Figure 12A View Figure 12 ); (3) foretibia with indentation at apex; (4) thoracic gill absent at the base of forecoxa; (5) tarsal claws with 30–37 denticles; (6) paraprocts with 10–15 small marginal spines ( Figure 12D View Figure 12 ).

Right mandible ( Figure 11C View Figure 11 ). Inner and outer incisors fused, respectively with 5 + 2 denticles; prostheca slender, apically denticulate; margin between prostheca and mola almost straight, with a row of spine-like setae; tuft of spine-like setae at base of mola present; tuft of setae at apex of mola present; basal half with short, fine, simple setae scattered over dorsal area. Hypopharynx ( Figure 11D View Figure 11 ). Lingua subequal in length to superlingua; apex rounded, with tuft of short, fine, simple setae. Superlingua not expanded with fine, simple setae scattered over lateral and distal margin. Maxilla ( Figure 11E View Figure 11 ). Crown of galea-lacinia with inner dorsal row of setae with three pectinate denti-setae. Medial protuberance of galea with 1 + 3 long, fine, simple setae. Maxillary palp subequal in length of galealacinia. Palp segment II subequal in length of segment I; maxillary palp with fine, simple setae scattered over surface. Labium ( Figure 11F View Figure 11 ). Glossa narrow and subequal in length to paraglossa; inner margin with 10 spine-like setae increasing in length distally; apex with three long, spine-like setae; outer margin with five long, spine-like setae; ventral surface with two short, fine, simple setae on anteromedian area; dorsal surface bare. Paraglossa 1.2 × length of glossa, sub-rectangular, curved inward; apex with two rows of long, fine, pectinate setae; ventral surface with one fine, simple seta near base; dorsal surface with two robust and simple setae near apex. Labial palp with segment I 0.9 × length of segments II and III combined; segment I scattered with micropores, inner and outer margins with short, simple setae; segment II with distomedial protuberance slightly produced, with long, simple setae; dorsally with a row of five fine spine-like setae; segment III rounded, length 0.6 × width, scattered with simple setae and fine, simple, spine-like setae.

Comments

This species was described based on nymphs from Argentina, Missiones ( Nieto 2003). This is the first record since the description of the species, based on material from the states of Santa Catarina and Paraná. We examined one specimen from the state of Mato Grosso with slight differences on labium and tarsal claws. In this specimen the distomedial projection of labial palp segment II is a little more robust than in the original description of C. ipaye   , and the tarsal claws has 41 denticles, instead of 30–37   .

Camelobaetidius ipaye   is possibly closely related to the species in which the forefemur has a prominent protuberance on its inner margin: C. francischettii   , C. leentvaari   and C. mantis   . It is differentiated from the first two species by the absence of medial protuberance on prosternum, and from C. mantis   by the number of denticles on tarsal claw, 25 versus 30–37 in C. ipaye   .
