Diagnosis. Ipsiura goeldii  most closely resembles I. longiventris (Ducke)  . It can be distinguished from that and other Ipsiura  species by the bluish green body color and coarse punctation. In addition, the following combination of characters is diagnostic of I. goeldii  : fore femur punctate on outer surface; T3 without distinct prepit swelling, six acute distal teeth; medium-sized S2 spots, and the subrectangular TFC enclosure.

Male description. Body ( Fig. 73View FIGURES 73 – 77). Length: 6.7 mm. Coloration: head predominantly green blue, with distinct purple highlights on vertex; F1 green; mesosoma metallic green, with distinct blue highlights on dorsum, especially of pronotum and mesoscutum; metasoma metallic green blue, with transverse purple stripes on dorsum of T1 and T2, bluish highlights broadly disseminated on dorsum; T3 with bluish highlights on dorsum, with lateral whitish spot; wing membrane light brown, with brown veins; femora and tibiae greenish; tarsi brownish, basitarsi green. Head: TFC enclosing the median ocellus, closed medially and forming a subrectangular enclosure ( Fig. 74View FIGURES 73 – 77); F1 longer than broad, 1.1× as long as F2; scapal basin with dense silvery pubescence; fore femur without flattened area or ventral tooth-like projection on outer surface of distal margin, diameter of distal area subequal to diameter of proximal area; fore wing with short M distal to discoidal cell, R1 shorter than stigma (as in Fig. 190View FIGURE 190); dorsal surface of pronotum wider than head; lower lateral pronotal surface coarsely punctate anteriorly, with distinct posterior area delimited by transverse ridge; metanotum rounded, without differentiated surface; mesopleural lower posterior margin carinate, with indistinct tooth-like projections. Metasoma: T3 with six acute distal teeth ( Fig. 75View FIGURES 73 – 77), pit row completely exposed, with large, deep foveae, without prepit swelling; S2 spots medium-size to large, nearly reaching each other medially ( Fig. 76View FIGURES 73 – 77). Punctation: coarse punctation on whole body; fore femur punctate externally; largest punctures on T1, mesopleuron and metanotum.

Female. Same as male except for the characteristic shape of S2 spots touching medially as shown in Fig. 76View FIGURES 73 – 77.

Variation. Body length 6.7– 7 mm.

Hosts. Unknown.

Distribution. Argentina ( Formosa, Santa Fe); Brazil (ES, MG, PA, PR, SC, SP); Paraguay ( San Pedro) ( Fig. 77View FIGURES 73 – 77).
