Note: Comparing the diagnosis of Vitalius paranaensis Bertani, 2001 the male specimen (RKCP 0299, origin unknown) differs from V. paranaensis by the position of contact region between the tibial apophyses and metatarsus I and by the shape of SA keel. The differences may represent a variation in the palpal bulb morphology and the shape of tibial apophyses. A keel description follows Bertani (2001).
