Stephanocranion bufoninus Mello-Leitão 1949: 26   . Syn. nov.

Gonyleptellus bufoninus: Kury 2003: 126   .

Type data. 1 ♂ syntype ( NHMW 3126 View Materials , examined by photographs)   ; 6 ♂ syntypes ( SMF RI 764 View Materials , examined by pho- tographs), from BRAZIL, without further locality data   .

Taxonomical note. The original description of Stephanocranion bufoninus   is based upon a female from Pedra- Açu, Teresópolis, Rio de Janeiro state. Although it lacks any illustration, some parts of the description led us to synonymize S. bufoninus   with Discocyrtus crenulatus   (a species common in Teresópolis), in contrast to Kury’s (2003) assessment as a member of Gonyleptellus   . The features shared by the female of D. crenulatus   and the description of S. bufoninus   include: elevated ocularium, armed with a pair of robust erect spines; mesotergum convex, with hemispherical granulations; area III armed with a pair of robust erect spines; femora III–IV with apical posterior spine; general color brown burnt with large yellow hemispherical granulations.
