Additional material.

1 male, slide-mounted: Brazil, Amazonas, Manaus, Reserva Florestal Adolfo Ducke, Igarapé Bolívia, 02°49'15"S, 59°56'31"W, 9-12.xi.2008, Malaise trap suspensa 2, N. Hamada et al. leg GoogleMaps   . 2 males, slide-mounted: Brazil, Mato Grosso, Cuiabá, 10-11.x.1965, Brundin net, E.J. Fittkau leg. (A 580, ZSM)   .

Remarks.

Mendes and Andersen (2009) stated that the superior volsella has a "lateral strongly sclerotized, spine-like projection". In dorsolateral view (Fig. 2A View Figure 2 ), it can be seen that this spine-like projection originates from the base of the volsella and is equally long as the volsella proper.

Distribution

(Fig. 16C View Figure 16 ). The species was originally described from Acre State by Mendes and Andersen (2009); the range is now extended to the Mato Grosso and Amazonas States.
