Domodon zodiacus Reemer, 2013: 97   –98, Figs 68–73.

Type specimen. HOLOTYPE: male, deposited at RMNH, and labelled: SURINAME: Paramaribo Zoo , 05°50’30”N- 55°09’29”W, Malaise trap, 18–27.II.2006, leg. M. Reemer. GoogleMaps  

Comparative diagnosis (male). Body length: male 7 mm. The partly dark coloured tergites and the approximately equal length of scape and basoflagellomere set this species apart from Domodon incauleatus   sp. nov. and D. sensibilis   sp. nov., respectively. The dark median vitta on the face separates it from D. peperpotensis   . From D. caxiuana   sp. nov., it differs by the more extensive yellow markings on the tergites ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 24–27 ). In D. zodiacus   , the yellow markings on the median part of tergite 3 reach from the posterior to the anterior margin ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 24–27 ), whereas in D. caxiuana   sp. nov. these markings are confined to the posterior margin ( Fig. 24 View FIGURES 24–27 ).

FEMALE. Unknown.

Distribution. NEOTROPICAL—Suriname (Paramaribo) ( Fig. 28 View FIGURE 28 ).

Notes. See notes on D. caxiuana   sp. nov.
