Following new (again) Santos-Silva's systematic settings:
Parandra (Tavandra) polita Say, 1835.

Yes, this key is very clear and makes it evident.
Thank you, Francesco.

According to me, they are two females of Hesperandra (Tavandra) polita (Say, 1832).
You can check by yourself the key by Santos-Silva (2003).
The species is largely widespread in Central and Southern America.

And the larger, below.

This ridge is entire and distinct in both specimen.
Here the smaller above.

These ones with small eyes belong to the subgenera Tavandra or Hesperandra, which differs in the presence (or absence) of a intergenal ridge on the ventral side of the head. I need a picture of this particular.
