Agonocryptus varus: Yu et al., 2016 . Catalog.

Variation. Clypeal groove black ( Figs 15F–J View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. concolorous with clypeus); pronotal collar stripe often (27%) entirely yellow or narrowed, but not interrupted ( Figs 15A–C View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. yellow stripe interrupted centrally); hind coxa dorsally often (33%) with a narrow yellow streak ( Figs 15A, D, K View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent); hind coxa dorso-basally with a small black spot ( Fig. 15K View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent); fore wing sometimes (16%) hyaline with fuscous stripes both medially and apically ( Fig. 15C View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. without stripes); T2 basally with yellow band (vs. absent), pre-apically with two dark brown spots ( Figs 15L–O View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent), apex centrally with transversal yellow mark ( Figs 15M–O View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent).

Three specimens (E. E. Jataí and Barretos, both in São Paulo State, southeastern Brazil) have hind coxa dorso basally with a brown mark ( Fig. 15B View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent).

One specimen from Simla ( Trinidad & Tobago) has T2–6 apical margin centrally with whitish marks ( Fig. 15P View FIGURE 15 ) (vs. absent).

Comments. A pronotal collar with an interrupted yellow stripe is cited by Gupta (1982) as diagnostic for the subspecies, but a complete stripe was observed for about 1/3 of the specimens studied for the present work, namely those from Altamira (Pará State, northern Brazil), Estação Ecológica Jataí (Luis Antônio), Sales, Pindorama, and Barretos (São Paulo State, southeastern Brazil), and Department Santa Cruz ( Bolivia).

Distribution. Bolivia NR, Brazil NR (Amazonas, Bahia, Pará, São Paulo), Colombia NR, French Guyana NR, Panama, and Trinidad & Tobago NR (Arima Valley) ( Fig. 20H View FIGURE 20 ). Bootstrap analysis suggests that this species has a strong preference for elevations between 400–500 m ( Fig. 20I View FIGURE 20 ), a very strict range if compared with other Agonocryptus spp. ( Fig. 20 View FIGURE 20 ).
