Specimen: Cyrtophorina deinocerca Borgmeier & Prado, 1975 (Borgmeier & Prado, 1975/LACM:LACM ENT 094805)
View: Posterior face, hind femur, medium magnification


The neotropical genus Cyrtophorina is revised, with redescription of the previously known species, C. deinocerca Borgmeier & Prado, and description of three new species: C. kerri and C. zamorensis from Ecuador and C. gorgonensis from Colombia. The hypothesized phylogenetic relationships among the species, as well as their possible relationship to Dohrniphora Dahl are discussed.
