Note

This species was described from a single male specimen from Venezuela , Monagas, “ 27 km SW Caripe” [approximately 10.08° N, 63.63° W]. The new material listed below was included in a vial with numerous paratypes of Carupania tarsocurvipes González-Sponga, 2003 (= Coryssocnemis t.; see above). The specimens in that vial originate from two neighboring localities ~ 100 km NE of the type locality of C. monagas: Playa Pui Pui and Playa Medina. It is unclear if both species were found at both localities, or if each species was found at only one of the two places.
