Genitalia. Enlarged margin of dorsal rim broad and low. Foliaceus projection of the inferior layer of ventral rim subrectangular with mesial margins deeply reflected giving an aspect of a mesial projection on dorsal view; lateral margins tumescent close to posterolateral angles ( Figs 6, 8 View FIGURES 6–18 ). Carinae of segment X close to apex and well developed ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 6–18 ). Median conical projection of inferior layer of ventral rim low and flat ( Fig. 7 View FIGURES 6–18 ). Parameres: dorsal lobe of head the smallest, bearing a tuft of setae denser on posterior margin; ventral lobe twice the length of dorsal lobe, rounded and ventrally projected, bearing a tuft of long setae on apex ( Figs 16–18 View FIGURES 6–18 ). Phallus. Dorsal projection of phallotheca bilobed in profile, basal lobe acute and projected, apical lobe truncated ( Figs 13, 15 View FIGURES 6–18 ). Vesica enlarged at base, with basal lateral projections short and truncated at apex ( Figs 12–13 View FIGURES 6–18 ); and 1+1 spatulated projections laterad to ductus seminis distalis ( Figs 13–15 View FIGURES 6–18 , vp) with acute apex. Ductus seminis distalis sinuous and long, surpassing basal margin of phallotheca; apex jagged ( Figs 13–15 View FIGURES 6–18 ).

Genitalia. Genital plates velvety, except for glossy calluses. Gonocoxites VIII subrectangular, posterior margin bisinuous, sutural angles slightly projected; calluses rough with few punctures, projected over the base of laterotergites VIII and directed to lateral angle of laterotergites IX; surface between calluses and sutural margins corrugated equal to half of the callus width; sutural margins expanded ( Fig. 21 View FIGURES 21–27 ). Gonocoxites IX projected externally between laterotergites IX; cup-shaped internally, with lateral margins attaining the mesial carina ( Figs 21, 25 View FIGURES 21–27 ). Mesial margins of laterotergites IX juxtaposed on basal half. Thickening of vaginal intima subrectangular. Proximal portion of ductus receptaculi as wide as middle portion of median duct of vesicular area. Vesicular area three times longer than pars intermedialis plus capsula seminalis; median duct enlarged at base, globose. Distal portion of ductus receptaculi short, about 1/3 the length of vesicular area. Pars intermedialis four times longer than capsula seminalis; anterior and posterior annular crests perpendicular to pars intermedialis. Capsula seminalis globose, with thin basal processes ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 21–27 ).

Remarks. Alloeogyna brunnea (Sailer)   comb. nov. is the only species in the genus with five-segmented antennae. Diagnostic characters for All. brunnea   comb. nov. are: the labium reaching abdominal segment VI, the more projected callosities of gonocoxites VIII ( Fig. 21 View FIGURES 21–27 ), and the subrectangular foliaceus projection of the inferior layer of ventral rim. The pygophore is smaller and somewhat more opened than in All. poecila   sp. nov., from whom All. brunnea   comb. nov. can also be differentiated by: the deeply reflected mesial margin of the foliaceus projection of ventral rim; the enlarged margin of dorsal rim broad and low; the lateral carinae of segment X more developed ( Figs 6–8 View FIGURES 6–18 ); the internal shape of the gonocoxites IX and laterotergites IX; and by the globose enlargement at the base of the median duct of vesicular area ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 21–27 ).
