Seira meyerae (Coates, 1969) View in CoL 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.
