Sisyra nocturna Navás 1932:155   [description]; 1935:67 [revision]; Monserrat 2005:10 [junior synonym of S. apicalis   ]

Remarks. This species is widely distributed, being recorded from the southern United States to Brazil ( Oswald 2019). In Brazil, this is the first record of S. apicalis   from Bahia and Pernambuco states, in the Northeast Region of the country ( Figs 1, 3, 5–7 View FIGURES 1–7 ). This also constitutes the first record of Sisyridae   to Pernambuco state.

The remarkable characteristic of S. apicalis   is the straight distally projected male gonocoxite 9, with rounded apex and curving internally in dorsal view ( Assmar & Salles 2017).
