Diagnosis. Body pale white with dark violet pigments on Ant I–IV, proximal leg III, femur and tibiotarsus distally; Th II projected anteriorly and with 6 median (m1ip present) in m1–2 complex and 11 posterior mac (p3 absent); Th III–Abd II with 9, 5, 4 central mac respectively ( Fig. 11A View FIGURE 11 ); unguis a.t. present; unguiculus pe lamella serrated but toothless; manubrial plate with 2–3 blunt mac; dens with 4 blunt mac ( Fig. 11B View FIGURE 11 ) (modified from B̂rner 1903; Coates 1968).

Remarks. The specimen of L. annulicornis   described by Yosii (1959) from Cape Town does not show the same morphology of specimens from Mozambique (sensu B̂rner 1903; Denis 1935; Coates 1968) ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 ), and for this reason they are herein designated as L. ryozoi   nom. nov. In this same sense the chaetotaxy description of Szeptycki (1979), as well as the interpretation by Soto-Adames (2008) of Seira annulicornis   (locality not specified) also do not fit neither the description of Yosii (1959) or Coates (1968), and consequently should not be considered as identity of this species. Even so, L. annulicornis   differs from these species by body with dark violet pigments on Ant I–IV, proximal leg III, femur and tibiotarsus distally, while L. ryozoi   nom. nov. has pigments on Ant III–IV, Ant II and tibiotarsus I–III distally (unknow in Szeptycki’s specimens). Lepidocyrtinus annulicornis   differs in chaetotaxy by Th II with 6 median mac in m1–2 complex (5 in L. ryozoi   and Szeptycki’s specimens) and posteriorly without p3 mac (present in L. ryozoi   ). They also differ by Th III with p1i mac and p1i2 mac absent (opposite in L. ryozoi   ), and dens with 4 blunt mac (9–10 in L. ryozoi   ). Other differences among similar species to L. annulicornis   are listed in Table 3.
