Pseudosympycnus latipes (Parent)  

( Figs 4 View FIGURES 1–6 , 24, 25 View FIGURES 16–29 , 49, 50 View FIGURES 42–54 , 67 View FIGURES 66–71 , 86 View FIGURE 86 )

Sympycnus latipes Parent, 1930: 23   , figs 28–30. Type locality: Taperinha farm, Santarém, Pará, Brazil.

Diagnosis (male). Metepimeron yellow ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1–6 ). Femora mostly yellow, except femur I brownish ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1–6 ). Tibia I not strongly compressed (only slightly thicker than tibiae II and III). Tarsus I ( Fig. 49 View FIGURES 42–54 ) with It 1–2 brown and It 3–5 white: base of It 2 with brush of compacted stout dorsal setae directed forward and followed by 3 stout curved setae, apex with dorsal and anterodorsal stout setae; It 3 with dorsal projection, overlapping base of It 4 and with 3 stout dorsal setae at base and dorsal row of white slender setae. Tarsus II unmodified. Tarsus III ( Fig. 50 View FIGURES 42–54 ): IIIt 3 with 4 posterior setae longer than podomere length and curved at apex.

Material examined. BRAZIL. Acre, Mâncio Lima, Parque Nacional Serra do Divisor, Malaise , 5.x.2007, L. Menezes (1 Ƌ, INPA)   . Amapá, Serra do Navio , 18.v.1989, I.S. Gorayeb, Armadilha Suspensa 6m (1 Ƌ, MPEG)   .

Remarks. Robinson’s (1967) identification key leads P. latipes   to couplet 3, which includes the species without whitish distal joints on male fore tarsus. Nevertheless, Parent’s (1930) original description clearly states “ tarse I, articles 3, 4 et 5 blancs ” (“fore tarsus, joints 3, 4 and 5 white”), which is also confirmed after examination of photographs of the type (NHMW). Apparently P. latipes   and P. albipalpus   are switched in the couplets of the identification key.

Distribution. Brazil (States of Acre, Amapá and Pará) ( Fig. 86 View FIGURE 86 ).
