Diagnosis

Chimarra makiorum sp. nov. differs from C. hamatra sp. nov. by the apical insertion of the median branch of the inferior appendage (at mid-height in C. makiorum sp. nov.).

Etymology

The name is designed from that of the river where the type was collected (Rivière des makis). It is used according to the Latin rules.
