Epicriopsis atuberculatus  Narita & Moraes, 2016: 478.

Type depository.

Departamento de Entomologia e Acarologia, Escola Superior de Agricultura "Luiz de Queiroz", Universidade de São Paulo, Piracicaba, São Paulo, Brazil.

Type locality and habitat.

Brazil, Minas Gerais State, Congonhas Town - leaves of macaúba palm, Acrocomia aculeata  ( Arecaceae  ), from a patch of Atlantic Forest.

Comparative material.

Brazil: 2 ♀♀ ( ESALQ: T-MZLQ 3305 C=7735, holotype; ESALQ: T-MZLQ 3306 C=7735, paratype) - 11. 8. 2014, Congonhas - MS, Ex: Acrocomia aculeata  ( macaúba), leg. R. V. Veloso.

Remarks.

The number of the dorsal setae is different in both adult stages: 25 pairs in females, and 27 pairs in males ( Narita and Moraes 2016). This fact is unusual in Ameroseiidae  and it should be carefully checked again in newly collected specimens.
