Centris (Hemisiella) trigonoides Lepeletier, 1841 

( Figures 19–22View FIGURES 19 – 22, 30View FIGURE 30)

Centris trigonoides Lepeletier, 1841: 167  .

Centris punctata Lepeletier, 1841: 169  (synonymized by Moure, 1960).

Centris dentipes Smith, 1874: 366  (synonymized by Moure, 1960).

Centris hoplopoda Moure, 1943: 160  , 161 (synonymized by Moure, 1960). Centris rufomaculata Cockerell, 1949: 476  (synonymized by Snelling, 1984). Centris (Rhodocentris) lanipes subtarsata Cockerell, 1949: 476  , 477 (synonymized by Snelling, 1984).

Diagnosis. Both sexes with mainly yellow pilosity on head and mesosoma, lighter on ventral surface; clypeal disc with a smooth, poorly developed longitudinal carina. Centris trigonoides  is similar to C. tarsata  . Both sexes differ by the pilosity on mesosoma (yellow in C. trigonoides  ; yellow greenish in C. tarsata  ). The males differ by the presence of the tooth-like projection on the posterior surface of hind basitarsus (present in C. trigonoides  ; absent in C. tarsata  ) and by the pilosity on the posterior surface of the hind tibia (brown or yellow in C. trigonoides  ; whitish in C. tarsata  ). Females differ by the surface of clypeal disc (not areolate and with a longitudinal carina in C. trigonoides  ; areolate, without longitudinal carina in C. tarsata  ), and by the pubescence surrounding the basitibial plate (yellow and plumose in C. trigonoides  ; mostly whitish and simple in C. tarsata  ).

Morphology. Female ( Figs. 19, 20View FIGURES 19 – 22). Measurements: Approximate body length: 12.3; head width: 4.2; thorax width: 4.7; forewing length: 10.0; UID: 2.0; LID: 2.0; mandible length: 1.7; basal mandibular width: 0.7; labrum length: 0.7; labrum width: 1.1; F1 length: 0.8; F2 length: 0.2; F3 length: 0.3; scape length: 0.5; diameter of the median ocellus: 0.3; distance between the lateral ocellus and the eye: 0.4. Coloration: Head blackish, mesosoma and legs dark brown. Mandible (mainly), labrum, lower paraocular area and base of mid and fore tibiae yellow. Clypeus with two ellipsoidal yellow spots. Anterior surface of antennal flagellum brown. Tegula light brown with yellow posterior edge. Metasoma light brown to orange. Terga with slightly translucent apical bands. Wing membranes light brown with brown veins. Sculpture: Clypeus with coarse, relatively sparse punctation. Clypeal disc with smooth longitudinal carina, not very evident in some specimens. Labrum with coarse and dense punctation. T2 with fine and very dense punctation, denser on T3 and T4. T5 with coarse and sparser punctures than on previous terga. Pubescence: Head and mesosoma with yellow pilosity, lighter on ventral surface. Gena and T1 with whitish pubescence. Legs with dark yellow to very light brown pubescence. Scopa of hind tibiae with long and mostly plumose hairs. Inner surface of hind leg with light brown pubescence. T2–T4 with short, dark brown hairs. T5 with long and yellow pilosity. Structures: Mandible with three teeth (1st>3rd>2nd) with acute apex. Second tooth almost fused with apical tooth. Trimal angle acute. Acetabular carina reaching base of third tooth. Clypeal disc flat (lateral view). Labrum semicircular. Inner orbits of compound eyes diverging above. Vertex slightly above upper ocular tangent. Secondary anterior comb of fore elaiospathe formed by three giant apically curved hairs. Pretarsal claws with a small preapical tooth, absent in hind leg.

Male ( Figs. 21, 22View FIGURES 19 – 22). Measurements: Approximate body length: 10.8; head width: 3.9; thorax width: 4.6; forewing length: 10.5; UID: 1.5; LID: 1.5; mandible length: 1.3; basal mandibular width: 0.6; labrum length: 0.6; labrum width: 1.0; F1 length: 0.7; F2 length: 0.2; F3 length: 0.3; scape length: 0.5; diameter of the median ocellus: 0.3; distance between lateral ocellus and eye: 0.3. Coloration: Head and mesosoma dark brown. Legs brown, darker on fore and lighter on hind legs. Hind tibia and basitarsus light brown, orange or slightly yellowish in some specimens. Mandible (mainly), labrum, lower paraocular area and base of mid and fore tibiae yellow, remaining areas dark brown. Clypeus yellow with dark brown spot on upper edge. Anterior surface of antennal flagellum (except F1) light brown. Tegula light brown with yellowish posterior edge. Metasoma light brown, slightly orange in some specimens. Terga with translucent apical bands. Wing membranes yellowish with veins brown. Sculpture: Clypeus finely areolate, at least on upper half of disc, with coarse and not very dense punctation. Clypeal disc with smooth longitudinal carina, not very evident in some specimens; lower half almost impunctate. Labrum finely areolate, with coarse, very dense punctation. T2 with fine, very dense punctation, coarser and sparser on T3–T7. Pubescence: Head, mesosoma and dorsal surface of T1 with yellow pilosity, lighter on interantennal area. Vertex with light brown hairs. Gena with whitish pubescence. Legs with a mixture of yellow, orange and light brown pubescence. T2–T4 and disc of T5 with dark brown hairs. Distal terga and all sterna with light brown to yellowish pubescence. Structures: Mandible with three teeth (1st>3rd>2nd) with acute apex. Trimal angle not well-developed. Acetabular carina reaching base of third tooth. Clypeal disc relatively flat (lateral view). Labrum semicircular.

Inner orbits of compound eyes diverging below. Vertex slightly below upper ocular tangent. Hind femur welldeveloped. Hind basitarsus with a spine-like projection on posterior surface.

Floral record. Byrsonima spicata Poepp. ex Spreng.  ( Malpighiaceae  ) (new record).

Comments. The clypeal carina on disc in some female and male specimens is poorly developed. In some males of C. trigonoides  the coloration of the metasoma is slightly orange instead of light brown.

Type material. Holotype female (Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, MNHP, examined).

Type locality. Unknown.
