Potiaete maculata Martins & Galileo, 1999   ( Figs. 23-29 View Figures 23-33 )

This species was described and remains known only from Brazil (Espírito Santo). The original description provided only a drawing of a male, probably the holotype. The female was never illustrated, and the only known specimen of this sex was destroyed during the fire in the MNRJ. Herein we illustrate both sexes of this species (including the male holotype).

Material examined: BRAZIL, Espírito Santo: Linhares , holotype male, 30.X.1992, J.S. Santos col. ( MZSP)   ; Linhares , 1♂, 1♀, 30.X.1992, J.S.Santos col.( RNV,female retained to MZSP)   ; Aracruz , 19°51′41″S, 40°12′49″W, 1 ♀, 17.XII.1997, J.A.C. Simões col. ( SSA) GoogleMaps   .
