Cotinusa humillima Mello-Leitão, 1943: 223   , fig. 49 [ male holotype from Itapiranga, Santa Catarina (not Rio Grande do Sul, as in Mello-Leitão, 1943), Brazil, P. Buck leg., deposited in MNRJ 41937, not examined   ].

Helvetia humillima: Galiano, 1963b: 2   (synonymized with H. santarema   ); Galiano, 1965: 47.

Note. Since the type specimen of Cotinusa humillima   has not been examined, the identification of this species is based on the good illustrations by GALIANO (1963b: figs 8-10, 1965: fig. 9).

Diagnosis. The male of this species has a RTA very similar to that of H. cancrimana   , with a short ventral branch and a developed dorsal branch, but can be distinguished by the ventral basal projection on the RTA ( Fig. 18 View Figures 15-20 ) and the longer embolus ( Fig. 17 View Figures 15-20 ).

Description. Male. Described by GALIANO (1963b: 2, un- der H. santarema   ).

Female. Unknown.
