Gonyleptes perlatus ( Mello-Leitao, 1935)   comb. n.

Moojenia perlata   Mello-Leitão, 1935: 384, fig. 13 (♂); (2 males syntypes, Brazil, Minas Gerais, Viçosa, MNRJ 1577, examined)

Collonychium perlatum   : Kury 2003: 123.

Diagnosis.

Gonyleptes perlatus   is very similar to Gonyleptes horridus   (according to Kury 2003) but can be distinguished by the relatively larger tubercles on lateral margin of the do rsal scutum and the absence of a robust prolateral row of apophysis on male femur IV (present in Gonyleptes horridus   ), although this article might present variable armature.

Taxonomical note.

We propose the allocation of this species in Gonyleptes   because it is very similar to Gonyleptes horridus   (see comments in Kury 2003), including the typical sexual dimorphism. According Kury (2003), both species are allopatric.
