Type locality

Guajará-Mirim, Rondônia, Brazil.

Description (holotype)

MEASUREMENTS. Length: 10 mm.

HEAD. Surface densely and distinctly punctated; with rectangular frontoclypeal carina, length greater than four-fifths of the interocular distance.

PRONOTUM. Completely punctate, with dense and distinct punctation, becoming more accentuated towards the centre of the disc, regularly convex with two medial projections anteriorly, one on each side.

HYPOMERON. Hypomeral carina slightly curved toward edge.

METAVENTRITE. With simple and shallow punctation, laterobasal region with stronger punctation, lateral region with microsculpture obscurely variolate, almost semicircular.

MESEPIMERON AND MESEPISTERNUM. With shallow punctation, stronger microsculpture obscurely variolate, almost semicircular.

HIND LEG. Metafemora with a carina along posterior edge, anterior edge with setal fringe, surface with fine punctation. Metatibiae elongated and gradually dilated towards the apex; external margin serrated.

AEDEAGUS. In dorsal view, parameres with a strong concave angulation and abruptly curved apex.

Variation and sexual dimorphism

Length ranging from 8.87 to 11.11 mm. The projections on the pronotal disc vary according to the size of the specimen, being allometrically developed as the size of the body increases. Males with ventrite VI wider medially, female ventrite VI with the same length throughout. Males also have protibial spur flattened, while in females the protibial spur is narrowed and pointed.

Geographic distribution

The specimens examined came from Brazil (Mato Grosso, Rondônia, Pará) and Peru (Madre de Dios). The species occurs in the southern region of the Amazon biome, corresponding to the Southeastern Amazonian dominion and Boreal Brazilian dominion.
