A specimen classified as "Thaxterogaster" was collected recently from these states and here proposed as Thaxterogaster shoreae sp. nov. within subg. Scauri sect. Purpurascentes. Detailed morphological description, illustrations 2-locus phylogenetic estimations and comparisons with respective allied species are provided.
