A new species of Litopeltis Hebard, 1920 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Blattodea, Blaberidae, Epilamprinae) with a key to males and geographical distribution of the remaining species of the genus.

Silva Lde O, Lopes SM - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: This contribution describes a new species of Litopeltis from Brazil, L. teresopolitensis sp. n., which shows similarities with L. paineirensis Lopes & Oliveira, 2010 and L. ribeiropretano Lopes & Oliveira, 2010.It differs in characters of morphology genitalia and configuration, with the median sclerite bearing microspines on the sclerotic apex.A map showing the geographic distribution of the Brazilian species and a key to males of the other species of the genus are also presented.

Figure 4: Litopeltis ribeiropretano Lopes & Oliveira, 2010, male. 18 habitus (dorsal view) 19 head (ventral view) 20 pronotum (dorsal view) 21 supra-anal plate (dorsal view) 22 subgenital plate (ventral view) 23 left phallomere (dorsal view) 24 median sclerite (dorsal view) 25 right phallomere (dorsal view)

Mentions: This species appears to be to Litopeltis paineirensis Lopes & Oliveira, 2010 (Figs 10–17), which it resembles in the median sclerite (Fig. 16) and the subgenital plate (Fig. 14); and to Litopeltis ribeiropretano Lopes & Oliveira, 2010 (Figs 18–25), which has a similar right phallomere (Fig. 25).
