Perla (Perla) debilis Pictet, 1841: 255  ; Anacroneuria debilis, Zwick, 1972: 1155  ; Zwick, 1973: 486; Froehlich, 2002: 76; Baldin et al., 2013: 392.

Material examined. BRAZIL (BR), Santa Catarina (SC), Nova Teutonia: 12 males, xi. 1980, Fritz Plaumann ( DZUP); 1 male, 7.x. 1955 (Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History—NMNH); 5 males, 27 females, i. 1975 ( NMNH). Paraná (PR), Foz do Iguaçu, Cataratas: 1 female, 8.iii. 1968, W. L. & J. G. Peters ( NMNH).

Remarks. The redescriptions and comments about this species can be found in the papers of Zwick (1972, 1973), Froehlich (2002) and Baldin et al. (2013). The adult males studied here have a forewing length of 11.1–12.1 mm. The structure of the penial armature ( Figs. 3–5View FIGURES 1 – 5) agrees with Zwick (1972) and Baldin et al. (2013). However, in several of the above listed males, the penial armature is slightly smaller and has a stronger dorsal inclination apically. The penial differences at this time are accepted as variation occurring in A. debilis  . However, study of additional material from different localities is needed to ascertain if cryptic species are involved.
