Mecynogea lemniscata ( Walckenaer, 1841)  

Linyphia lemniscata Walckenaer, 1841: 263   (Name for illustration of J. Abbot (1792) The Drawings of the Insects of Georgia, fig. 25. Originally deposited in The Natural History Museum, London, with photocopy in the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, not examined).

Mecynogea   lemniscata— Levi 1980: 13, figs 1–15; World Spider Catalog 2017 (complete taxonomic citation history).

Distribution. This species has the widest distribution in the genus, with records from southeastern USA to northern Argentina, although with a disjunction created by the absence of records in the Amazonia. We report this species for the first time in Bolivia, and add new records from the Brazilian states of Distrito Federal, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Pernambuco, Piauí and São Paulo ( Fig. 19 View FIGURE 19 ).
