Santanagryllus Martins-Neto, 1991


Santanagryllus Martins-Neto, 1991  

Type species. Santanagryllus hesselae Martins-Neto, 1991   by original designation.

Remarks. Santanagryllus Martins-Neto   differs from Cearagryllus   , the closest genus, in having a straight anterior margin of the speculum, twice as long as the posterior margin. Additionally, in Santanagryllus   R and CuA are sinuous and distally convergent. Santanagryllus   shares with Notocearagryllus   a wider area below the speculum, differing however in the shape of the speculum (rather trapezoidal in Santanagryllus   , squarerounded in Cearagryllus   and Notocearagryllus   ).
