Eriolus  paruensis  Piza, 1979

This species is misplaced in Eriolus  . All known females of this genus have much shorter and curved ovipostors. E. parunesis  has a straight and much longer ovipositor. Due to the dark coloration of the dorsal area of the pronotum it resembles Subria  , as well as Eschatoceras  . But it does not comply with other characters of those genera, in particular not with the respective type species, although S. amazonica  has a long and straight ovipositor. Even though E. paruensis  is not an Eriolus  , we could not find an appropriate place where it belongs, and for now leave it in that genus.
