Chrysopodes   Subgenus Neosuarius  

Before the publication of this study, 19 species were assigned to Chrysopodes   subgenus Neosuarius   ; 17 were listed in the “Neuropterida Species of the World” on-line catalogue ( Oswald 2007) and an additional two were recently described ( Tauber and Tauber, 2010; see Table 1 here). Five of the listed species [C. (N.) apurinus   , C. (N.) crassipennis   , C. (N.) divisus   , C. (N.) placitus   , and C. (N.) poujadei   ] do not fit the new, restricted definition of the subgenus proposed here; they are removed from the subgenus and will be treated elsewhere. Specimens of Chrysopodes (Neosuarius) karinae Freitas and Penny, 2001   , were not made available. Thus, the species’ taxonomic placement is unconfirmed.

As a result of the current study, Chrysopodes   subgenus Neosuarius   now includes ten species that express the following suite of traits: (i) mandibles that are broad throughout, not only at the base (Fig. 10); (ii) mesal margin of left mandible with rounded, knob-like projection (Fig. 10); (iii) mesal margin of right mandible rounded, without a knob (Fig.

Table ļ. Species assigned to Chrysopodes (Neosuarius)   before the publication of this study (as listed in

Oswald 2007) and their taxonomic status after the study. The six species that are marked with an asterisk

do not fit the re-defined definition of the subgenus proposed here.
