Tomeophera modesta Brunner


Tomeophera modesta Brunner  von Wattenwyl, 1878

Phaneropterops piracicabensis Piza, 1971  syn. nov.

Phaneropterops Piza, 1971  syn. nov. of Tomeophera Brunner  von Wattenwyl, 1878.

The genus Phaneropterops  is only compared to Phaneropteroides Piza, 1971  , another of the three new genera described in the same paper, and which looks entirely different (similar to Phaneroptera  ). Piza’s male specimen from southeastern Brazil is very similar to species of the genus Tomeophera  , and coincides in details of fastigium, pronotum shape, tegmina venation and cerci, as well as with measurements, with the male holotype of T. modesta  , also described from Brazil.
