caribensis as a new species were: pattern of coloration, sculpturation, and differences in the number of pectinal
teeth, which were whiter, smaller, less sculpturation and fewer pectinal
tooth than specimens from the eastern Savannas ("Llanos Orientales") of Colombia.
dilutus, the only other species in the genus has 8-9 pectinal
teeth in females, 10 in the male; the pectines have well developed fulcra; and median carina of sternite VII weak to moderately strong, smooth.
Other ossicles are also found as: prepectinal, pectinal
, postpectinal, subdentate, lateral cardiac inferior, lateral of the valve cardiopyloric and anterior supraampullary.
veins' (approximately equivalent to pectinal
veins sensu Spicer,
tooth count 11-11; basal middle lamellae of the pectines not dilated; fulcra present.
Pectines: number of pectinal
teeth in males: 16-18 (n = 10; median = 17); in females: 15-17 (n = 10; median = 16).
veins: A new concept in terminology for description of dicotyledonous leaf venation patterns.
The primary sensory elements on pectines are hundreds of minute structures called peg sensilla, which adorn the ground-facing surface of each pectinal
tooth (Carthy 1966, 1968; Ivanov & Balashov 1979; Foelix & Muller-Vorholt 1983).
bonettii are very broad proximally, with a more pronounced basal plate (Armas 1999), and the first 6-7 pectinal
teeth are noticeably larger than the rest (Fig.
pterygocercus using four characters: trichobothrial pattern, dentition of the anal arc, pectinal
tooth counts, and number of subrows of denticles on the pedipalp fingers.
3, 4); pectines with 7-10 teeth (female, male unknown); pectinal
basal plate subrectangular (Fig.
Basal piece of the basal lamellae of the pectines with few spots; the remaining pieces and the pectinal
basal piece completely yellow.
