Abstract

A new species of Pronura from the Luquillo Experimental Forest on Northeastern Puerto Rico is described and illustrated.
Pronura yunquensis sp. nov. differs from other Neotropical Pronura in the absence of eyes and can be separated from
other species of the genus by the presence of a head tubercle (De), the displacement of Di1 in Abd IV and the fused
tubercles De+DL in Abd V. A key for identification to American species of Paramanura, Pronura and Paleonura is
included.
