Stenoterommata peri   sp. nov.

( Figs 41–43 View FIGURES 41 – 48 )

Types. Male holotype from Parque Municipal Lagoa do Peri   , 20 m asl, 27°43'26.10"S, 48°30'29.07"W, Santa Catarina Island, Florianópolis , Santa Catarina GoogleMaps   , Brazil, vii –viii.2011, pitfall traps, A.L. Trivia & L. Malta coll. ( IBSP 166236 View Materials )   . Paratype: same data as holotype, 1 male ( IBSP 166079 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   .

Additional material examined. None.

Diagnosis. Males of S. peri   sp. nov. resemble those of S. gugai   sp. nov. by the long bulb keels ( Figs 41–43 View FIGURES 41 – 48 ), but can be distinguished by the absence of a developed retrolateral keel with triangular apical end and diagonal embolus tip ( Figs 41–43 View FIGURES 41 – 48 ).

Etymology. The specific name is a noun in apposition taken from the type locality, Parque Municipal da Lagoa do Peri   , Santa Catarina Island, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
