Remarks

Austrotinodes taquaralis  is very similar to A. donagrazielae  sp. nov., A. absaberi  sp. nov. and A. gusmaoi  sp. nov., possibly forming a species group or complex. There are minor differences among then, as mentioned in the species diagnoses of those species. This species can be diagnosed by a set of characteristics, including intermediate appendages tapering to apex, with a single basodorsal and 3 apical spine-like setae; inferior appendages with posterior margin concave with central point; and a phallus with the lateral process bearing a short slender ventral branch with a single apical spine, and a dorsal branch with a row of 2 subapical and 1 apical unenlarged spines.

This species is commonly encountered at Atlantic Forest sites in Itatiaia, Rio de Janeiro state, and Minas Gerais. It is reported for the first time and from similar sites from Espirito Santo state.
