Bittacus angrensis Souza Lopes & Mangabeira, 1942 

( Figs. 1aView FIGURE 1, 8aView FIGURE 8, 12aView FIGURE 12)

Bittacus angrensis: Souza Lopes & Mangabeira, 1942:336  ; Penny & Byers, 1979b:367; Machado et al., 2009:36; Machado, 2018. Thyridates angrensis: Willmann, 1983:50  , Collucci & Amorim, 2000:7.

Holotype male: MNRJ (examined). Probably destroyed in the fire of 2.ix.2018. Species also known from: Paraná (new record), Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo (new record) ( Fig. 12aView FIGURE 12). 

Bittacus angrensis  , B. brunipennis  and B. geniculatus  form the group of Brazilian species with the apical region of the forewing falcate, referred to as “group angrensis  ” by Collucci & Amorim (2000). The relationship between B. angrensis  and B. brunipennis  needs further investigation; they are very similar and males of the latter are still unknown.

Examined specimens. Brazil: Paraná: São Luiz do Purunã , 950 m, 28.x.1986, Mielke & Casagrande (1♀ INPA)  ; São Paulo: Salesópolis, Estação Biológica Boracéia , 23.6543 o S 45.8896 o W, 885m, 26.xi.2008, Grossi, Parizotto, Fernandes & Paladini (1♂ INPA)GoogleMaps  .
