AbstractA new species, Erylus soesti n. sp. is described from SE Brazil. This study is part of an ongoing revision of genus Erylus Gray, 1867 (Mothes, Lerner & Da Silva, 1999; Mothes & Lerner, 1999) and adds a further brazilian species to the genus. This new species can be distinguished by the possession of dichotriaenes, oxeas, and peculiar cushion-like aspidasters with extremely irregular outline, microspined microstrongyles and sphaeroxyasters. A key for identification of brazilian species is provided.
