Diagnosis.

Loboscelidia cinnamonea  is most similar to Loboscelidia nasiformis  , as both share an arched medial vein, rectangular frontal projection, complete notauli, without a scrobal sulcus and the cu-a vein reduced to a tiny stub or absent. It can be distinguished from Loboscelidia nasiformis  by the more typical frontal projection, fore and midtibiae without discrete, measureable flanges, R1 obsolescent and Rs 3 × or more as long as R.
