Abstract

The Genus Carapona new status with nine valid species, and the genus Spinanella new status with one species, are revised. Both were previously subgenera, Carapona as a subgenus of Hecalapona, and Spinanella as a subgenus of Gyponana. Four new species are added to the genus Carapona: C. deserta and C. dicrota from Brazil, and C. colombiana and C. longula from Colombia. The characters which place species into these two genera are given, as well as characters to separate them from the closest genus Hecalapona. A key to the thirteen species of Carapona is also included.
