Taphura sauliensis Boulard, 1971  

Taphura sauliensis Boulard 1971: 688   . (Saul, center of village, French Guiana)

REMARKS.—The claspers bifurcate at their terminus and bend towards the midline and the basal pygofer lobes are rounded finger-like extensions. The abdominal tergites lack the anterior transverse piceous mark in T. sauliensis   that is found in T. crispula   . The transverse mark in the pronotal ambient fissure is a single mark in T. hastifera   but split into three parts in T. sauliensis   whose claspers bifurcate at the terminus rather than being claw-like as found in T. hastifera ( Sanborn 2017a)   .

DISTRIBUTION.—The species is currently known from Ecuador, French Guiana, Colombia, Peru, and Trinidad & Tobago ( Duffels & van der Laan 1985; Sanborn 2013; 2017a; 2020b, e) with a recent range expansion into Venezuela ( Sanborn 2020a). The species was recently added to the fauna of Ecuador ( Sanborn 2017a) with representatives from Orellana   province studied.
