[[ Listrura de Pinna ZBK ]]

Listrura de Pinna ZBK is the only genus of the subfamily Glanapteryginae occurring in small coastal rivers basins of southern and southeastern Brazil (de Pinna, 1988; Nico & de Pinna, 1996; Landim & Costa, 2002; de Pinna & Wosiacki, 2002). All other glanapterygines ( Glanapteryx Myers ZBK , Typhlobelus Myers ZBK , and Pygidianops Myers ZBK ) are endemic to the Amazon and Orinoco river basins, northern South America (Myers, 1944; de Pinna, 1998; Costa & Bockmann, 1994) and constitute a clade. Listrura ZBK species inhabit interstitial spaces in the substrate (i. e., sand, litter) of shallow forest streams (Landim & Costa, 2002; de Pinna & Wosiacki, 2002). The genus includes four species: L. camposi (Miranda-Ribeiro) , described from the rio Ribeira do Iguape basin, southern São Paulo State (Miranda-Ribeiro, 1957; de Pinna, 1988), and also found in ribeirão da Ilha, Florianópolis , Santa Catarina State (Nico & de Pinna, 1996); L. nematopteryx de Pinna ZBK , known from two localities in river basins ( Iguaçû and Estrela) adjacent to baía de Guanabara, Rio de Janeiro State (Miranda-Ribeiro, 1962; de Pinna, 1988); L. tetraradiata Landim & Costa ZBK , from the lagoa de Araruama system, Rio de Janeiro State, and considered the most basal species of Listrura ZBK (Landim & Costa, 2002; de Pinna & Wosiacki, 2002); and, L. boticario de Pinna & Wosiacki ZBK , from Salto Morato, Paraná State (de Pinna & Wosiacki, 2002). In this paper we describe a new species from a coastal drainage in Picinguaba of northern São Paulo State, southeastern Brazil, previously misidentified as L. nematopteryx ZBK (de Pinna & Wosiacki, 2003).
