2 Gonostylus with two stout spines (one apical and one superior external), and one very thin or atrophied spine on the inner sur- face of the basal half of the structure..................................................................... 3

- Gonostylus with three stout spines implanted as described above, but with an internal spine of equal size and caliber to the external spines...................................................................................... 11

3 Gonocoxite with one multi-branched basal seta..................................... Pintomyia piedraferroi (León)  

- Gonocoxtie with one basal group (tuft) of three or more simple setae............................................ 4

4 Gonocoxite tuft with straight setae....................................................................... 5

- Gonocoxite tuft with curved setae and apexes directed toward the gonocoxite..................................... 7

5 Basal area of the paramere clearly more dilated than apical area due to a concavity on its dorsal margin..................................................................................................................................................................................................... Pintomyia fiocruzi   sp. n.

- Paramere otherwise................................................................................... 6

6 Gonocoxite tuft with four or five loose setae implanted in a single row, some reaching the apex of the paramere.............................................................................. Pintomyia oresbia (Fairchild & Hertig)  

- Gonocoxite tuft with three or four grouped setae, all of uniform size, reaching the middle of the paramere..................................................................................... Pintomyia ottolinai (Ortiz & Scorza)
