Pattonella (Euboettcheria) florencioi


Peckia (Euboettcheria) florencioi ( Prado & Fonseca, 1932) 

( Fig. 10 View Figure )

Material examined. BRAZIL. Acre: Rio Branco , 25.X–8.XI.1991, upland forest, Malaise trap, leg. A. Henriques, I.S. Gorayeb & N. Bittencourt (3 ♂♂, MPEGAbout MPEG). 

Distribution in Brazil. Acre *, Espírito Santo, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina, São Paulo.

Remarks. The female terminalia of this species were recently described by Vairo et al. (2015). This species had previously been recorded only from southern South America and Ecuador ( Pape 1996); P. (E.) florencioi  was not collected in recent inventories performed in the Brazilian Amazon with traps baited with decomposing organic matter ( Sousa et al. 2011, 2016). The few specimens examined here are deposited in the MPEGAbout MPEG collection and were collected with Malaise traps in primary forest in the state of Acre. According to Dias et al. (1984), P. (E.) florencioi  is a non-synanthropic species closely associated with forested environments, where it is usually abundantly collected.
