Specimens examined. Piracicaba, April 2002, 13 females on Tabernaemontana  sp

Previous records. Brazil [States of Bahia, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Sul and São Paulo (Moraes et al., 2004 b); Ceará, Paraná and Santa Catarina (Furtado et al., 2005); Distrito Federal, Goiás and Minas Gerais, (Rezende & Lofego, 2011)]; Colombia, El Salvador, Guadeloupe, Honduras, Jamaica, Les Saintes, Puerto Rico and USA (Moraes et al., 2004); Venezuela (Quirós et al., 2005); Peru (Guanilo et al., 2008 b) and Dominican Republic (Ferragut et al., 2011).

Remarks. The measurements of three adult females collected in this study fit the original description and the redescriptions given by Lofego et al. (2004, 2009) for specimens from the State of São Paulo. As reported by Moraes et al. (2000) for specimens from Guadeloupe, macrosetae have not been observed on legs I –III in the specimens collected; instead, knob-tipped setae, as long as or slightly shorter than other setae, were observed on genua of those legs. Knob-tipped macrosetae are present on genua, tibia and tarsus of leg IV.
