Dendropaemon sp.  

Collection data. Piauí: Baixa Grande do Ribeiro, Riozinho , approx. 45 o 25' W   ; 8 o 50' S, cerrado, mercury vapour light trap, v. 2005: 1 specimen. NEW STATE GENUS RECORD   .

Remarks. Few records exist for species of Dendropaemon   . At least two other species have been recorded from the NE of Brazil; both were described from BA and are listed by Olsoufieff (1924). These are D. bahianus Harold   and D. smaragdinus Waterhouse. There   are no recent published records for either species. Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to reliably identify species of Dendropaemon   . However, the genus is currently under taxonomic revision (F. Génier and P. Arnaud personal communication).
