Chvalaea masneri Ale-Rocha, 2006 

( Figs 14View FIGURES 13–14, 15, 17View FIGURES 15–18, 42View FIGURES 37–42, 50View FIGURES 45–52, 53View FIGURE 53)

Chvalaea masneri Ale-Rocha, 2006: 26  , figs 27–32, 40. Type-locality: Chulumani, Apa-Apa, La Paz, Bolivia.

Diagnosis. As in Ale-Rocha (2006), plus frons narrow (at mid-length narrower than width of anterior ocellus) ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 13–14). Veins M 1 and M 4 reaching the wing margin ( Fig. 50View FIGURES 45–52). Hind femur slightly clavate. Fore and mid tarsomeres 3– 4 and hind tarsomeres 3–5 ventrally with short, blunt, black spine-like setae.

Type material examined. PARATYPES:GoogleMaps  Bolivia. La Paz, Chulumani, Apa-Apa   GoogleMaps, 16°22′S, 67°30′W, 1– 4.v.1997, 1800 m, L. Masner s.s. B-09 (7 ♂, INPA).

Remarks. In the original description, a photo of the wing of C. masneri  was presented ( Ale-Rocha 2006, fig. 40), which highlighted the sinuosity near the apex of vein R 1 as diagnostic of the species. After re-examining the paratypes and a photo of the holotype, we noted that vein R 1 is not so sinuous near the apex and does not run closely to R 2+3 ( Fig. 50View FIGURES 45–52) as previously described, indicating that the wing in Ale-Rocha (2006) does not belong to this species. Therefore, we provide here a new wing photograph of a male paratype.

Geographical distribution. This species is known from Bolivia (La Paz) and Guatemala (Sacatepequez) ( Fig.View FIGURE 53
