( Figs. 150–151 View FIGURES 150–151 )

Adelopsis grouvellei   ; Szymczakowski, 1963: 671 [and Figs. 10–12 View FIGURES 4–16 or 13—it is not possible to recognize which one refers to the specimen here assigned to this species] (misidentification—Gnaspini, 1996: 540, and see Notes under A. grouvellei   , below).

Holotype, male ( NMPC). Type locality and data: Brazil: São Paulo State: São Paulo, Jaro Mráz leg. Labels: “ São Paulo / Bras. Mráz lgt / Mus. Pragense”. One male paratype with same data. Holotype here illustrated. Note: specimens misidentified as Adelopsis grouvellei Jeannel, 1936 in Szymczakowski (1963: 671)   —Gnaspini, 1996: 540, and see Notes under A. grouvellei   , below.

Length: 2.0– 2.3 mm.

Short Description. Eyes normal. Winged.Apex of the right lobe of the aedeagus subrectangular, with a rounded margin, in lateral view ( Figs. 150, 151 View FIGURES 150–151 ). Flagellum shorter (about 3/ 4 in length) than aedeagus, strongly curved, almost forming a 1-turn coil ( Fig. 150 View FIGURES 150–151 ). Proportion aedeagus/elytron = 0.35. Female unknown.

Etymology. The name is given in honor of Wacław Szymczakowski, who examined the specimens, for his large contribution to systematics of cholevines.

Distribution. Brazil: São Paulo State: known only from type locality.

Taxonomic Remarks. The lateral view of the aedeagus ( Fig. 150 View FIGURES 150–151 ) seems to help in the recognition of this species.
