Diagnosis. Species of Decaphora are distinguished from those of other Sparianthinae genera by the male palp with RTA originating close to the base of the tibia, with two or three branches, usually armed with strong setae ( Figs 2–3 View FIGURES 1 – 4 , 5–8 View FIGURES 5 – 12 ; Rheims & Alayón 2014, figs 17, 24, 31, 39) and a paraembolic tegular projection resting within a distally sheath-like embolus ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES 1 – 4 ; Rheims & Alayón 2014, figs 18, 25, 32, 40). Females are distinguished by the vulva with anterior blindended projection ( Rheims & Alayón 2014, figs 20, 27, 35, 42).
