Carineta acommosis Sanborn 2020b: 53   View Cited Treatment . ( Rio Tambopata Reserve , 30 km (air) SW of Puerto Maldonado, 290m, Madre de Dios, Peru)

REMARKS.— Carineta acommosis   is most similar to C. apicalis Distant, 1883   and C. naponore Boulard, 1986a   of the Ecuadorian fauna. It is a small to medium sized (body lengths 19.75–21.85 mm), non-descript, green species. This species can be distinguished from C. apicalis   and C. naponore   by the finger-like medial extension of the male operculum and the broader posterior prothorax producing a more triangular anterior, the frons that does not form at an approximate right angle to the vertex and the abdomen tapers toward the posterior in C. apicalis   and C. naponore   , and the basal lobe appendages are large flattened lobes in C. apicalis   and similar but smaller basal lobe appendages in C. naponore   . It is a smaller version of the Ecuadorian species group composed of C. cyrili Champanhet, 1999   , C. dicrophryxothrix Sanborn, 2020b   , C. gemella Boulard, 1986a   , C. lichiana Boulard, 1986a   , and C. socia Uhler, 1875   all of which have a similar general appearance but larger body size (> 25 mm).

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has been reported from Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru ( Sanborn 2020b). It was reported from Napo province in Ecuador.
