Abstract
Cutervodesmus simplex n.sp. is described from the environs of Manaus, Brazil. This new species
differs from other congeners, including C. adisi GOLOVATCH, 1992, the only other member of the genus
known from the Manaus area, by the virtually unmodified male head, anterior somites and/or legs as well
by certain details of gonopod structure. Venezuelodesmus TABACARU, 1996, erected recently for three
species from Venezuela, is formally synonymized under Cutervodesmus KRAUS, 1957 (syn. n.!). This
makes Cutervodesmus one of the most prolific genera among Neotropical Fuhrmannodesmidae, with no
fewer than seven species currently established from Venezuela (3), Peru (2), and Central Amazonia of
Brazil (2).
