Macropygium subsulcatum (Amyot & Serville, 1843)   , REVISED STATUS

( Figs 6E View FIGURE 6 ; 11 View FIGURE 11 ; 12 View FIGURE 12 ; Table 1 View TABLE 1 )

Oxyrhinus subsulcatus Amyot & Serville, 1843: 12   (removed from the synonymy with M. reticulare   ).

Macropygium subsulcatum: Dallas, 1851: 158   .

Lectotype female (here designated) ( Fig. 11 View FIGURE 11 ): FRENCH GUYANE, Cayenne. Labels: Cayenne / Coll. Signoret. // subsulcat. / det. Signoret. ( NHM)  

Paralectotype female: FRENCH GUYANE, Cayenne. Labels: Cayenne / Coll. Signoret. // subsulcat. / det. Signoret. ( NHM)  

Distribution: French Guyane ( Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 ).

Diagnosis: Antennae five-segmented, first antennomere slightly longer than the second; sutural angles of valvifers VIII posteriorly projected; lateral angles of valvifers VIII roundly projected, covering the base of laterotergites IX.

Male. Unknown.

Female. Genitalia: valvifers VIII almost as long as wide; lateral angles of valvifers VIII rounded, slightly surpassing posteriorly an imaginary line connecting the spiracles of laterotergites VIII, and partially covering a third of the basal portion of laterotergites IX; sutural angles of valvifers VIII posteriorly projected; posterior margin of valvifers VIII concave near the sutural angles; laterotergites IX with mild lateral depression ( Figs 6E View FIGURE 6 ; 11D View FIGURE 11 ).

Comments. Macropygium subsulcatum   is currently known only from the two female types, collected in French Guyane ( Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 ). Macropygium subsulcatum   females are readily distinguished from other Macropygium   species by the relatively wide valvifers VIII and with broadly rounded apical angle ( Fig. 6E View FIGURE 6 ).
