Brasineura troglophilica Silva-Neto & García Aldrete, 2015 

Variation in the fore wing veins ( Figs 9–12 View Figure )

The pattern in the fore wing M vein described by Silva-Neto & García Aldrete (2015) for B. troglophilica  is M six branched, with M6 forked resulting in M6a and M6b, but two of the three male specimens collected in 1982 in the Brazilian state of Pará show the following variations: M seven branched, with M7 three branched, resulting in M7a,M7b and M7c ( Fig. 9 View Figure ); the other specimen shows M with seven primary branches, with M7 and M4 forked ( Fig. 10 View Figure ). A third specimen has the same pattern as the holotype ( Fig. 11 View Figure ). The paratype of B. troglophilica  has the fore wing M vein six branched, with M6 three branched ( Fig. 12 View Figure ).
