Species-groups. To help with discussion of our results, the species of Matinta are here gathered in speciesgroups based simply on key features. These groups, however, need to be tested in cladistic analyses.

So far, only one species-group has been characterized and revised, by Patello & Ruiz (2014): the acutidens species-group of Matinta includes M. acutidens , M. balbina , M. delicata , M. jurutiensis , M. longidens , and M. similis . According to Patello & Ruiz (2014), these species would bear two linked RTA branches in the male palp: one more ventral, which is a blade-like lobe along the axis of the palp, and one more dorsal and perpendicular to the axis of the palp, which is a short and acute apophysis pointing dorsally (see Patello & Ruiz 2014: figs 11–12, 24, 31).

Besides the acutidens species-group, we here recognize the vicana species-group ( M. vicana , M. fonsecai , M. silvae , and possibly M. fasciata ), with a poorly developed RTA separate from a stout, bifid RvTA (see Galiano 1963: pl. XXVII: figs 1–3). The acutidens and the vicana species-groups seem to be closely related, since they share an intumescence on the stout embolus that fits into a concave prolateral portion of the tegulum, and a prolateral, acute projection on the same portion of the embolus.

Another lineage is the steindachneri species-group ( M. steindachneri , M. apophysis and several undescribed species), with the RTA modified into a blade that extends ventrally and dorsally into cusps, and the copulatory openings fused into an atrium on the epigynal plate (see Galiano 1963: pl. XXVII: fig. 5, 1968: fig. 59).

Matinta furcata and M. mimica , despite being sister-species, are of uncertain relationships with the remaining species-groups and are kept in the furcata species-group. Matinta opiparis is kept in its own group due to uncertain affinities within the genus (the opiparis species-group).

The saperda species-group gathers M. saperda , M. pardo , and M. procax . These three species lack the “tegular” slit and have simple RTA and poorly developed RvTA (see Galiano 1963: pl. XXVI: figs 11–12). These features, however, are all thought to be plesiomorphies within amycines and would not be used to demonstrate the monophyly of this species-group or even the inclusion of these species in Matinta.

Matinta chickeringi also needs to be corroborated as a member of the genus, since the holotype is lost and we have only the poor original description as reference for this species.
