Haplocauda, a New Genus of Fireflies Endemic to the Amazon Rainforest (Coleoptera: Lampyridae)

Abstract: Most firefly genera have poorly defined taxonomic boundaries, especially in the Neotropics, where they are more diverse and more difficult to identify. Recent advances that shed light on the diversity of fireflies in South America have focused mainly on Atlantic Rainforest taxa, whereas lampyrids in other biomes remained largely unstudied. We found three new firefly species endemic to the Amazon basin that share unique traits of the male abdomen where sternum VIII and the pygidium are modified and likely work … Show more

“…nov. that catches the eye is the shape of abdominal sternum IX (Fig. 4F ), which is medially divided by a membranous line—a typical trait of the Lampyrini (e.g., Kazantsev 2010 ) that is also commonly observed across Lamprocerini and Cratomorphini (e.g., Campos et al 2018 ; Silveira et al 2019 ; Lima et al 2021 ), but seldom seen in Photinini (e.g., Silveira et al 2022 ).…”

“…Specimens were examined and imaged under a Leica M205 C stereomicroscope, using the Leica Application Suite X Automontage software. We follow the classification of Martin et al [ 41 ] and the anatomical terminology of Silveira et al [ 13 ].…”

“…For example, recent systematic efforts shed light on several lineages of fireflies endemic to the Atlantic Rainforest [ 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 ], a rather common trend in soft-bodied beetle families [ 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 ]. Likewise, endemic genera were recently identified in the Amazon Rainforest [ 13 ] and in the Chilean matorral ( Cladodes s.s. sensu [ 8 ]). Narrow endemicity is also widespread at the species level in South American fireflies [ 14 , 15 ].…”
