  • Francisco Urra Museo Nacional de Historia Natural


This study provides an updated morphological description of Doina edmondsii (Butler, 1883) based on specimens collected in central Chile and photographs of its type specimen. The genital structures of the male and the female are described and illustrated for the first time. Also, new geographic records are given for the species.
