Rachias iricolor ( Mello-Leitão, 1923)  comb. nov.

Hermacha iricolor Mello-Leitão, 1923: 67  . Female holotype from Blumenau , Santa Catarina, Brazil, MNRJAbout MNRJ 1366View Materials, not located. World Spider Catalog, 2016. 

Note. Hermacha iricolor Mello-Leitão, 1923  is here transferred to Rachias  as the original description mentions the following features: almost glabrous carapace; labium almost as long as wide; maxillae with small area of few basal cuspules, with long and curved setae on ventral side that covering the cuspules ( Mello-Leitão, 1923). These features agree those of Rachias  , as proposed by Goloboff (1995). The holotype of R. iricolor ( Mello-Leitão, 1923)  comb. nov. has not been located, and no specimens were found in zoological collections. Three expeditions were carried out by the first author in different altitudinal gradients (150–936 m asl) at the type locality and also by other researchers with pitfall traps (see Lucas et al., 2006: 52). However, no specimens have been collected.
