Seira meyerae (Coates, 1969)

comb. nov.

Seira meyerae (Coates, 1969)  comb. nov.

Lepidokrugeria meyerae  Coates, 1969: 87‒89, figs 1‒6, Letaba river, Kruger National Park, South Africa (orig. descr.), not examined.

Remarks. Lepidokrugeria  was previously synonymized with Seira  by Soto-Adames et al. (2008), but this taxonomic act was not considered by Bellinger et al. (1996‒2018), who included Lepidokrugeria  in Lepidocyrtinae  Wahlgren. Thus, Seira meyerae  comb. nov. is herein transferred to Seira  since it presents typical characteristics of the genus, especially overall dorsal macrochaetaxy pattern and mucro falcate.
