Ponana (Lataponana) cephalata DeLong 

( Figs 40–57View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48)

Ponana (Lataponana) cephalata DeLong, 1977: 110  .

Nullana sinchona DeLong & Martison, 1980: 498  . New synonymy.

Nullana sinchona  has atrial processes ( Figs 56, 57View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48), which contrasts with the diagnosis of the genus by DeLong (1976). The presence of atrial processes was even acknowledged in the description of the genitalia of N. sinchona  : "A pair of parameres [atrial processes] arise on dorsobasal portion of shaft [atrium] and extend almost to apex of shaft". Moreover, the illustrations of N. sinchona  ( Figs 53–57View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48) are identical to the illustrations of a previously described species, Ponana (Lataponana) cephalata DeLong, 1977  ( Figs 44–48View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48). The descriptions of the coloration of both species are identical: Head and thorax brownish yellow. Pronotum with black spot behind each eye. Forewing with four black spots, two on cross veins of discal cell and two on apex of anal veins. Both are from the same locality, Sinchono, Peru ( Figs 43, 52View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48). According DeLong, (1977) the holotype of N. sinchona  is labeled " Sinchona  , Peru, XI-1943, J.G. Sanders coll." and according DeLong and Martinson (1980) the holotype of P. (L.) cephalata  is labeled " Sinchona  , Peru, November 1943, J.G. Sanders coll.". Based on examination of photographs of the holotypes of both species ( Figs 40–43, 49–52View FIGURES 40 – 57. 40 – 48), deposited in the C. A. Triplehorn Insect Collection ( OSUCAbout OSUC), and study of ten male specimens of P. (L.) cephalata  , deposited at DZUPAbout DZUP, from Peru, Cuzco, which we compared with the descriptions, illustrations and images of both species, we are confident that both are the same species and that they are now correctly placed in Ponana  by Delong (1977).
