Diagnosis. Hoffmannilena nova differs from H. cumbre Maya-Morales & Jiménez 2016 in having the tegular median process with one projection (Fig. 45 b), from H. marginata (F. O. Pickard-Cambridge 1902) in having the tegular median process pointed (Fig. 45 a), and from H. tizayuca Maya-Morales & Jiménez 2016 in having the tegular median process separated from the embolus by its width (Fig. 45 b).

Distribution of Novalena calavera Chamberlin & Ivie 1942 and Novalena lutzi (Gertsch 1933) based on material examined and on Chamberlin & Ivie (1942). MAP 3. Known distribution of Novalena annamae (Gertsch & Davis 1940), Novalena chamberlini sp. nov., Novalena creel sp. nov., Novalena dentata sp. nov., Novalena oaxaca sp. nov., Novalena prieta sp. nov., Novalena sinaloa sp. nov., and Novalena volcanes sp. nov.
Type. Holotype male: GUATEMALA: Alta Verapaz, F. Sarg, deposited at BMNH (examined). Transfer justification. This species presents the conductor with two projections and a sclerotized tegular median process as in Novalena. However, it does not present the ventral projection in the RTA (usually present in Novalena) and has a basal projection instead of a dorsal projection (Fig. 45).
