Corynoneura vidiapodeme sp. n.

( Fig. 34)

Type material. Holotype male, BRAZIL, SP, Salesópolis , Estação Biológica de Boracéia 23°39.229´, 45°53.367´W, 8–1.xi.2010, Malaise trap, B. Brown et al . Paratype: one male, same data as holotype .

Diagnostic characters. The male of C. vidiapodeme is differentiated from other species with phallapodeme attachment placed in the caudal apex of sternapodeme and apex of hind tibia with a s-shaped seta by the antenna plumose with 7 flagellomeres and inferior volsella narrow and large. Corynoneura vidiapodeme is similar to C. renata and can be distinguish from this species due to the narrower aedeagal lobe and by the by shape of the phallapodeme.

Etymology. From Latin “ vidi ” meaning “appear, be seen” referring the easily recognisable phallapodeme.
