- Two new species are described and illustrated from northeastern Argentina, and northern Uruguay. Neotypes are designated for Cypella discolor, C. fucata and C. laeta (based on collections made from the same locality as the holotypes indicated in the protologues). A lectotype is proposed for C. exilis, and an epitype is selected for C. pusilla. Further, three new synonyms are proposed: C. yatayphila under C. laeta, C. amplimaculata under C. exilis, and C. altouruguaya placed under C. lapidosa. Finally, C. osteniana subsp. aurantiaca is confirmed as a synonym of C. fucata.
