Abstract

PINTO, AP  and  LAMAS, CJE. Description of the female of Navicordulia aemulatrix Pinto & Lamas and additional notes on the male (Odonata: Corduliidae). Neotrop. entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.40, n.6, pp. 698-703. ISSN 1519-566X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-566X2011000600010.

The female of Navicordulia aemulatrix Pinto & Lamas is described and illustrated for the first time based on a single specimen from the same locality of the type series (state of Santa Catarina, [municipality of São Bento do Sul, 26°14'58"S, 49°22'59"W, railroad station] Rio Vermelho, 29.I.1952, in MZSP). In addition, further morphological notes for the male are provided based on three specimens collected at the type locality and at a new locality in the state of Santa Catarina (Timbó municipality). The pronotal process present in N. aemulatrix is re-evaluated and considered non-homologous to that found in Neocordulia setifera (Hagen in Selys) as previously suggested.

Keywords : Anisoptera; Corduliinae; dragonfly; morphology; taxonomy.
