Description

Body size: Length: 6.20–7.14 mm. Width: 4.84–5.59 mm. Head: Clypeal carina with three tubercles on an equal level. Frons with poorly developed interocular tubercles, not connected by carina; region between the tubercles almost flat and with few points. Pronotum: Anterior region of the pronotum with little elevated tuber, almost bidentate, which can be more or less developed; depression marked by pointsbehind the tubercle. Male terminalia: In dorsal view, extremely short and flat parameres, posterior margin going beyond the apex of the parameres ( Figure 10 View Figure 10 (g)). In posterior lateral margin view with curved projection forming an approximate 45° angle towards the parameres ( Figure 10 View Figure 10 (i)). Sexual dimorphism: This species does not feature sexual dimorphism. Remarks: The primary type is deposited at the CEMT.

Differential diagnosis. Bolbapium santanaorum sp. nov. is morphologically similar to B. borgmeieri , B. boillyi sp. nov., B. caesum , B. howdeni , B. modestum , B. parcepunctatum and B. sampaioorum sp. nov. in not presenting the transverse carina forehead interconnecting the interocular tubercles. However, it is easily differentiated by presenting a bituberculated projection.In addition,it is only possible to separate the species of Bolbapium parcepunctatum for male aedeagus and geographic distribution; see the Remarks on B. parcepunctatum for more information.
