Diagnosis

A Geoplaninae with a small to medium-sized body, sub-cylindrical, slender with nearly parallel margins, anterior and posterior extremities rounded. Eyes and sensory pits surround the entire cephalic region. The eyes are monolobate and distributed along the body margins. The prostatic vesicle is extrabulbar and strongly muscularized. The penis papilla is cylindrical and horizontal. The distal half of the male atrium has large folds. The common glandular ovovitelline duct is dorsal to female atrium. A female genital cavity communicates between the common glandular ovovitelline duct with and the female atrium. The female atrium is long and well muscularized.

Etymology

The name ' Piima' is a composition of the Tupi (Indigenous Brazilian language) words ' pii' (meaning ' thin', ' slender') and ' ma' (' animal') ( Tibiriçá 1984). It alludes to the body shape of the type species of the genus. The gender is female.
