Tupiperla Froehlich, 1969 

Paragripopteryx Illies, 1963  (nec Enderlein, 1909): 178.

Tupiperla Froehlich, 1969: 28  (Type species: Semblis gracilis Burmeister, 1839  , by monotypy); McLellan, 1977: 121 (in Gripopteryginae  ); Froehlich, 1998: 34; Stark, Froehlich & Zuñiga, 2009: 96; Froehlich, 2010: 137.

Diversity. Tupiperla  has 25 species described, including the five described in this paper ( Table 1).

Diagnosis. Tupiperla  is diagnosed by: adults with a disto-ventral spine on each femur ( Froehlich, 1969); forewing pattern with most crossveins with broad, squarish, and darker borders, forewing pterostigmatic crossveins absent; in males, the lack of a sclerotized epiproct, and a relatively long extension of tergum 10 (T10) that ends in two separate teeth ( Bispo & Froehlich, 2007). The nymphs are slender; the femur, as in adults, is provided with a disto-ventral spine; the femur and tibia lack a dorsal row of long hairs ( Froehlich, 1969).
