Abstract

OLIVEIRA, Caroline Silva Neubern de; FONSECA-GESSNER, Alaíde Aparecida  and  NAVARRO-SILVA, Mário Antônio. Parapentaneura bentogomensis Stur, Fittkau et Serrano (Diptera, Chironomidae, Tanypodinae) taken in Southeastern, Brazil: additional characters and modified generic diagnosis. Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.2, pp. 139-142. ISSN 1676-0603.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1676-06032010000200017.

The genus Parapentaneura was established in 2006 and is composed of a single species, Parapentaneura bentogomensis, originally from Mato Grosso State. This species was collected in São Paulo State and is thus redescribed. The specimens from both localities were compared, adding new characters to the description of the species and emending the genus diagnosis. The new record increases considerably the geographical distribution of Parapentaneura.

Keywords : new record; non-biting midges; redescription; species; taxonomy.
