Abstract
Hoffmanopeltis gen. nov. (type species Leptodesmus ravus Schubart, 1956) is described to accommodate H. ravus (Schubart, 1956) comb. nov. and H. contiger sp. nov, from Cerrado-Atlantic Forest ecotone, southeastern Brazil. The new genus is compared with other genera of Chelodesmidae, in particular AtlantodesmusHoffman, 2000 and PlectrogonodesmusHoffman, 2012, based on the morphology of the acropodital region and solenomere. In addition, an updated list of species of Chelodesmidae recorded in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, is provided.
