Basal half with fine, simple setae over dorsal area. Mola reduced. Labium ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES 4 – 9 ). Glossa narrow and subequal in length to paraglossa; inner margin with eight fine, simple setae; apex with three long, fine pectinate setae; outer margin with six long, fine setae; ventral surface with a row of eight short, fine, simple setae. Paraglossa sub-rectangular, curved inward; apex with three rows of long, fine, pectinate setae; ventral surface bare; dorsal surface with two fine, simple setae near apex.

Abdomen ( Figs. 2, 3 View FIGURES 1 – 3 ). Light brown; segments II – VI and segments IX – X washed with brown. Terga IV ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 10 – 13 ). Surface with fine, simple setae over area; posterior margin with rounded spines. Gills IV ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 10 – 13 a). Light brown; margins with narrow spine intercalating short, fine, simple setae ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 10 – 13 b); tracheae not pigmented. Paraproct ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 10 – 13 ). With three spines near inner margin; surface bare, without shagreened area; postero-lateral extension smooth. Cerci light brown; outer and inner margin of the terminal filament and inner margin of the cerci with tufts of long, simple setae; outer margin of the cerci with short, fine spine-like setae in each segment.

Etymology: The name of the species is in honor of Dr. Alain Thomas, for his significant contributions to the knowledge of Ephemeroptera .

Comments. Corinnella thomasi sp. nov. is easily distinguished from C. eximia by the shape of the labrum, with the distomedial emargination clearly discernible in C. eximia versus shallow in C. thomasi sp. nov.; by the shape of tarsal claws, with only the first denticle distinctly longer in C. eximia versus the first and last denticles distinctly longer in C. thomasi sp. nov.; by the shape of spines on the posterior margins of terga, being pointed in C. eximia and rounded in C. thomasi sp. nov. The rounded spines found on the posterior margins of terga can be visualized using a microscope with phase contrast.When Dominique et al. (2005) described the genus Corinnella (as Corinna ), they stated that the tarsal claws were unique among Baetidae . Later, Nieto (2010), while performing a phylogenetic analysis of South American Baetidae , considered that the tarsal claws of Corinnella were spatulate, such as in the genus Camelobaetidius . Based on the new species, we agree with Nieto (2010) regarding the type of tarsal claws. Despite this similarity, Corinnella presents a series of characteristics that distinguishes it from the genus Camelobaetidius , such as: absence of the dorsal arc of setae on the labrum; presence of many long, fine, simple setae on outer margin of labial palp; and presence of a row of few spine-like setae along patella-tibial suture.
