Chinavia obstinata ( Stål, 1860)  ( Fig. 40View Figure 38–44)

Distribution. Brazil ( Schwertner and Grazia 2007).

Material examined. 1♀, 30-X-2012, P.M. Dellapé coll., PNI0702 (MLP). 

Remarks. New country record.

This species can be easily distinguished from the other species of the genus by the abdominal spine reaching the anterior limit of the mesocoxae, the lateral jugal margins slightly or not edged in black, and the shape of the first gonocoxae in females ( Schwertner and Grazia 2007).
