Dolophilodes (Sortosa) marinonii Almeida & Duarte 2003: 967   .

This species is similar to Alterosa escova   , A. fluminensis   , A. flinti   , and A. sanctaeteresae   , all of which have similarly developed inferior appendages and highly modified and enlarged preanal appendages armed with spine­like setae. From A. flinti   and A. sanctaeteresae   it differs in lacking elongate, apically setose lateral branches from the intermediate appendages. From A. escova   and A. fluminensis   it differs in the armature of the preanal appendages, which in A. marinonii   are unique in being studded with very short, stout setae.

Adult. Color in alcohol, brown. Male forewing 5 mm.

Male genitalia. Tergum VIII with posteromesal margin not or scarcely emarginate. Sternum IX with anterolateral margin forming rounded projection in ventral half; posteroventral margin greatly produced, extending sinuously from dorsum; tergum IX reduced, forming a mesal projection over base of tergum X, projection broadly rounded and weakly developed. Tergum X tapered from base; apex sensillate, subacute as viewed dorsally, not or scarcely enlarged in lateral view. Intermediate appendage heavily sclerotized, shorter than preanal appendage, more or less spine­like and weakly scabrous; apex acute. Preanal appendage greatly enlarged, broad basally, elongate, with numerous very short, stout, spine­like setae located apically and along ventral margin. Inferior appendages robust; 1st article, in lateral view, short, nearly as wide as long, bulging mesally; 2nd article longer than 1st article, relatively wide and uniform in width, about as wide basally as apex of 1st article; apex rounded, with prominent pad of short, stiff apicomesal setae. Phallobase tubular, short, curved near middle; endotheca basally with about 8 fine needle­like spines, apically with numerous short tack­like spines.
