Species. T. spinolai Porter 

Synonym of Mepraia spinolai Mazza, Gajardo and Jörg 

Etymology. The nature of the connective tissue firstly induced me to name it Tr. marginata  ; but then I thought that I should name a Chilean species in honor of Spinola, who worked on most of the Hemiptera  in the production from the illustrious Gay ( Porter 1934: 193).

Original citation. “El carácter del conexivo me indujo primeramente a llamarla Tr. marginata  ; pero he pensado despúes que debía luego denominar uma especie chilena  em honor de Spinola que trabajó la mayor parte de los Hemipteros em la obra del ilustre Gay” ( Porter 1934: 193).
