Key to the species of Hebridae  from Argentina

(Modified from Konopko et al. 2009)

1- Antenna with segments robust and thick ( Fig.7 View Figure ); segment IV subequal in length to segment I.......... Merragata hebroides 

- Antenna with segments slender; segment IV longer than segment I ( Figs. 4 View Figure , 8 View Figure )..................................... 2

2- Antennal segment IV without constriction ( Fig. 8 View Figure ); male with a subapical spine on the posterior surface of the hind tibia..................................................................................... Lipogomphus lacuniferus 

- Antennal IV segment with a constriction in the middle (false membranous articulation), so that the antenna appears to possess five segments ( Fig. 4 View Figure ); male lacking a subapical spine on the posterior surface of the hind tibia ( Hebrus  )................ 3

3- Body length approximately 3.00 mm; bucculae brownish, ventrally straight and subsequently slightly concave; clavus marked on each side with a small, basal, whitish spot adjacent to metanotal elevation and without pale spots on the membrane ( Fig. 9 View Figure ). Metanotal elevation with lateral and hind margins carinate, with prominent median carina sharply obliquely narrowed on sides along apical two-fifths..................................................................... Hebrus engaeus 

- Body length between 1.84 and 1.95 mm; bucculae yellowish, ventrally curved, posteriorly conical and slightly elevated; clavus with a pearl-white marking from the base until almost to the apex of the metanotal elevation (3/4 distance) and four distinct whitish spots on the membrane ( Figs. 1, 2 View Figure ). Metanotal elevation with raised edges and strong, straight median carina, flanked by two submedial depressions....................................................... Hebrus alvearensis  sp. nov.
