Remarks. The measurements of specimens collected agree with the measurements provided by Moraes & Mesa (1988) for Colombian specimens, as well as with those reported by Zacarias & Moraes (2001) for specimens from the State of São Paulo. In contrast to what was reported by Moraes & Mesa (1988), and similarly to what was reported by Zacarias and Moraes (2001), the macroseta of tarsus IV is knob-tipped and the seta pd 1 of genu I is distinctly thicker but not longer than other setae on the same segment.
