Megamelus maculipes is easily distinguished from the other South American species of the genus by the long first antennal segment, the greatly concave anal emargination of the pygofer, the strongly excavated and bordered ventral margin of the anal segment, long anal style, left subapical process on the aedeagus, and the lobed small projection of sternite VIII, median process on the lateral gonapophysis VIII which are tongue shaped and J-shaped in lateral view.
guanacaste Dominguez, 1995) by the following combination of characters: 1) medial denticle on anteromedian emargination of labrum much larger than others; 2) anterior tibiae slightly stained black toward the apex; 3) medial femora with few dorsal spines, similar to short thick needles; 4) hind femora with numerous dorsal spines, similar to short thick needles; 5) medial femora with no medial black markings, apical brown markings.
Ventral rim of pygophore with the medial U-shaped emargination relatively shallow (vre), 1 + 1 flaps slightly bending dorsad into the genital cup ([approximately equal to] Brepholoxa heidemanni Van Duzee); inferior folder of ventral rim developed in a medial bilobed projection (vrp), apparently an autapomorphy of Aleixus.
Tsuji (2006) scored the maxilla and the quadratojugal as being in contact in Nyctiphruretus based on illustrations of Ivakhnenko (1979) and Lee (1995, 1997), when in fact they are not due to a temporal emargination between the quadratojugal and the jugal (Fig.
