REMARKS. The unique shape of the male genitalia quickly separates male specimens of Taphura   . Taphura attiguclava   can be distinguished from T. hastifera ( Walker, 1858a)   and T. sauliensis Boulard, 1971   by the presence of a transverse piceous mark on the anterior side abdominal tergites that is lacking in this species. Taphura boulardi Sanborn, 2011a   can be distinguished quickly by the five spots on the head. Finally, T. nitida (Degeer, 1773)   lacks the spots on the anterior pronotal collar lateral angle that are found in T. attiguclava   and have drooping claspers rather than the claw-like claspers of this species. The claspers of T. attiguclava   are similar to those of T. hastifera   but the claspers in T. attiguclava   adjoin at the base and only diverge distally while the claspers do not adjoin along the midline in T. hastifera ( Sanborn 2017a)   .

DISTRIBUTION. The species has been reported only from Peru ( Sanborn 2017a). The specimens of T. hastifera   from Tambopata in Pogue (1996) are considered examples of T. attiguclava ( Sanborn 2017a)   .
