Epipleoneura janirae Machado, 2005

( Figs. 14 View FIGURES 13 – 15 , 37 View FIGURES 28 – 47 , 65 View FIGURES 53 – 66 )

Epipleoneura janirae Machado 2005: 47 –48, Figs. 1–2 View FIGURES 1 – 3 (new species, male and female description, illustrations of male S 10 in lateral and posterior view and female prothorax in dorsal view, type material at ABMM). Garrison et al. 2010: 352, 354 (included in list of species, illustrations of epiproct in posterior view). Pessacq et al. 2012: 4 (included in list of Brazilian Protoneuridae ).

Specimens examined. 2 ♂, 1 ♀. Holotype male, Brazil, Pará State, Santarém, Belterra (Porto Novo) (Santarém: 03º08’ 41 ”S, 55 º02’ 42 ”W), leg. A.B.M. Machado & P. Pereira, ii 1957. Allotype ♀ and 1 paratype ♂, same data as holotype. ABMM.

Diagnosis. Male cercus resembles that of E. capilliformis . The cercus has a well-developed inner-basal tooth. The epiproct consists of two long narrow branches, tapering toward apex and fused along almost their entire length with only their tips free, thus resembling that of E. uncinata De Marmels, 1989 , but in E. janirae there is a triangular swollen structure between branches base and the apex is comparatively thicker. Epipleoneura janirae further differs from that species by the different genital ligula morphology ( Fig. 37 View FIGURES 28 – 47 ); E. janirae is similar to that described for E. humeralis . Female posterior margin of pronotum ( Fig. 65 View FIGURES 53 – 66 ) is composed of a wide erected lobe with a medial very shallow V depression.

Distribution. Pará State, northern Brazil (type locality Santarém, Belterra [02 º 38 ’ 14 ” S, 54 º 09’ 96 ” W]).
