dimunuta: Blanchard (1942: 95), incorrect original spelling of diminuta Blanchard, 1942. Blanchard (1942) used two original spellings, diminuta (p. 55) and dimunuta (p. 95). By subsequent usage (ICZN Code Article 24.2.4), Blanchard in Blanchard & De Santis (1963: 15) acted as First Reviser and selected diminuta as the correct original spelling.

Description. Male. Head. Ocellar setae stronger than postoculars. Outer vertical seta stronger than postoculars. Orbital setae black. Three frontal setae situated below the dorsal limit of the lunule in lateral view. Genal setae black dorsally, yellow or white ventrally. First two rows of occipital setae black, others yellow. Thorax. Chaetotaxy: acrostichals = 0 + 1, dorsocentrals = 0 + 3 (anterior one shorter), intra-alars = 2 + 2 (anterior one shorter), supra-alars = 2 + 3, basal scutellars = 3. Prosternum and posterior surface of hind coxa with black setae. Antero-ventral scutellar setae black. Three katepisternal setae. Postalar wall with only black setae. Lower calypter with a central dark spot, without a fringe of long hair-like setae along outer margin. Mid femur without a ctenidium. Antero-dorsal surface of mid tibia with 2 median seta and 1 apical seta. Hind femur with a black patch of setae on anterior surface near apex, male hind femoral organ with setae very closely set in a patch, with a row of antero-ventral and a row of postero-ventral setae. Hind tibia antero-dorsally with 1 seta in the basal third, 1 in the middle third and 1 preapical. Abdomen. Postero-ventral seams between T3/T4 and T4/T5 parallel. Posterior seam of T5 not projected posteriorly and ventrally. T5 with golden microtrichosity. Abdomen in lateral view with golden microtrichosity. ST1+3 with only black setae. Three lateral setae on each side of T4. Terminalia. ST5 black. Medial margin of ST5 ∩-shaped. Inner margins of ST5 arms straight. Inner margins of ST5 arms without patches of setae. Syntergosternite 7+8 as long as high in lateral view, black with golden microtrichosity. Epandrium bright orange. Cercus orange proximally and brown or dark brown distally. Cercus without setae modified into spines. Cercus in lateral view progressively narrowing towards the apex. Cercal apex truncated in lateral view. Distal half of the dorsal margin of cercus slightly curved in lateral view. Surstylus orange, triangular, with a rounded apex. Postero-distal surface of surstylus equally sclerotized as the remaining surface. Pregonite elongated, with a rounded apex. Postgonite elongated, with a hooked apex. Basi- and distiphallus connected by a desclerotized strip. Juxta with juxtal lateral plate with three juxtal horns. Basal horn coiled around the axis of the juxtal lateral plate, as long as the others horns and clearly separated from the remaining juxta. The bifurcation giving origin to the juxtal lateral plates is deep and leaves the lateral plates not very close to each other. Distiphallus with a pair of lateral styli separated, each with a longitudinal cleft. Short vesica composed of one entire plate without demarcated connection with the distiphallus
