Abstract
Three new genera and six new species of Pyrgodesmidae are described from a primary terra firme tropical rainforest patch near Manaus, Central Amazonia of Brazil: Adisiella n.gen. with A. circularis n.sp. (the type species) and A. geniculata n.sp., Docodesmus hirudiformis n.sp., Tauricollarium n.gen. with T. biramosum n.sp. (the type species) and T. uniramosum n.sp., and Pseudoporatia n.gen. with P. perplexa n.sp. (the type species only). Myrmecodesmus SILVESTRI, 1910 is considered as a senior subjective synonym of Gonographis SCHUBART, 1945 (n.syn.), with M. hastata (SCHUBART, 1945), M. adisi (HOFFMAN, 1985), M. minuscula (GOLOVATCH,1996), and M.duodecimlobata (GOLOVATCH, 1996) formally reallocated therein (all n.comb.).
