Diagnosis

Camelobaetidius leentvaari   differs from the other described species of the genus with the terminal filament reduced based on the following combination of characteristics for nymphs: (1) segment II of labial palp with distomedial projection strongly produced ( Figure 13E View Figure 13 ); (2) forefemur with prominent protuberance on inner margin ( Figure 14A View Figure 14 ); (3) foretibia with indentation at apex; (4) small thoracic gill present at the base of forecoxa; (5) prosternum with a single, medial protuberance (as in Figure 10A View Figure 10 ); (6) tarsal claws with 17–23 denticles; (7) paraprocts with 5–17 small marginal spines ( Figure 14D View Figure 14 ).

Right mandible ( Figure 13C View Figure 13 ). Inner and outer incisors fused, respectively with 4 + 3 denticles; prostheca robust, apically denticulate, shorter than left prostheca; margin between prostheca and mola 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. Maxilla ( Figure 13D View Figure 13 ). 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 galea-lacinia. Palp segment II subequal in length of segment I; maxillary palp with fine, simple setae scattered over surface. Labium ( Figure 13E View Figure 13 ). 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 two long, spine-like setae; ventral surface with four 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, 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 strongly produced, with long, simple setae; dorsally with a row of five fine, spine-like setae; segment III rounded, length 0.5 × width, scattered with simple setae, and fine, simple, spine-like setae.

Tarsus. Dorsally with short, fine, simple setae; ventrally with nine spine-like setae increasing in length toward apex. Tarsal claws with 17–23 denticles. Mid and hind femora without prominent protuberance on inner margin, and mid and hind tibia without indentation at apex. Tibia II and III 1.0 × length of femur II and III, respectively; tarsi II and III 0.3 × length of femur II and III, respectively.

Cerci light brown; outer margin with tufts of long, simple setae.

Comments

This species was described based on nymphs from Surinam ( Demoulin 1966). Later, Salles, Serrão and Pereira (2005) redescribed the species based on type material and additional material from Brazil, state of Amapá, and Nieto et al. (2011) recorded this species from Venezuela. In the description presented by Salles, Serrão and Pereira (2005), they observed five small marginal spines on inner margin of paraproct. After examining a nymph from the same locality, we observed the presence of 17 small spines on inner margin of the paraproct. Therefore, the species has a variation of 5–17 spines on paraproct. The hypopharynx was lost in the process of mounting the slide, but is well illustrated (fig. 2 from Salles, Serrão and Pereira (2005). Camelobaetidius leentvaari   is possibly closely related to the species in which the forefemur has a prominent protuberance on inner margin: C. francischettii   , C. ipaye   and C. mantis   . It is differentiated from the last two species by the presence of medial protuberance on prosternum, and is differentiated from C. francischettii   by the number of denticles on tarsal claw, 34–39 versus 17–23 in C. leentvaari   .
