Diagnosis: This species has horns similar to those of H. marginata  , which are short tubercles that point slightly inwards and a clypeal horn that is very weakly produced, resembling a pointed forward projected clypeus. This species is different in the presence of distinctive golden setae on the prosternum and hypomeron. It also has a mesepisternum that is setose and punctate in such a way that it resembles rows of scalloping. The female is similar except without the horns ( Fig. 27View FIGURE 27).

Description: Male. Size: 8—10 mm; 3—4 mm.

Head. Distance between eye and cardo less than width of cardo (34:1). Clypeal horn short (4:1; 5:0); with anterior edge of clypeus pointed; width, at base, twice size of one supraorbital horn (7:2); produced forward (8:0) finely

punctate (9:1). Supraorbital horns short, conical and not bent (10:1; 11:0; 12:0); produced forward (13:0); finely

punctate (15:1). Third antennomere same size and fourth and more than 1.5 times size of second (18:0; 19:2). Puncturing on vertex as large as or larger than eye facets (26:2); puncturing on frons smaller than eye facets (28:1) Gena not extending laterally past eye (36:0). Mentum trapezoidal and lightly setose (40:0; 41:1). Mandible with distinct groove continuing to attachment point of cranium (44:1). Labrum fully setose (39:1).

Thorax. Pronotal puncturing biordinal in size (54:1). Coarse punctures not numerous; scattered across pronotum (57:2). From lateral view, pronotum not arched (58:0). Lateral edges of pronotum subparallel (61:1). Margins of pronotum expanded wider than one coarse puncture (62:2). Pronotum narrowest anteriorly (59:1). Anterior edge of pronotum reaching middle of eye (63:2). Hypomeron laterally rugulose (75:2). Prosternum finely punctate; puncturing smaller than eye facets (67:1); separated by less than one diameter (68:1). Prosternum and hypomeron setose (66:1; 76:0); setae white to golden. Prosternal process not extending past posterior portion of pronotum (69:0). Mesepisternum setose (73:1), punctate; punctures elongated anteriorly; larger than one eye facet (71:2); separated by less than one diameter (72:1). Row of cuticular teeth present on posterior edge of metasternum (77:1). Elytral striae punctate (46:1; 47:1), punctures separated by less than one diameter (48:0). Elytral interstices convex and punctate (49:1); punctures as large or larger than one fourth of strial punctures (50:1); separated by one diameter (51:2).

Legs. Tarsi pubescent. Cuticular outgrowths present on proximal two tarsomeres (86:1). Two apical spurs on tibiae (85:1). On lateral edge of protibia, more than seven socketed spines on distal third of protibia (81:1; 82:0). Apex of tibia without brush of setae (84:0).

Abdomen. First three abdominal sternites laterally rugulose (89:1; 90:1; 91:1). All sternites punctate and setose (94:3); setae arising from punctures. First four abdominal sternites coarsely punctate. Fifth visible abdominal sternite finely punctate. Genitalia. Basal piece arched ventrally, widest near base. Lateral edges of basal piece sclerotized, inner area membranous. Apical piece slightly wider at base than distal end. Sides sinuate and coming to rounded end. Parameres not divided. From lateral view, apical piece sinuate.

Female. Similar to male, except as follows: Cuticle on intraocular space narrowly raised near eye (23:1). Intraocular space impinging on eye (24:1). Puncturing on frons smaller than facets of eye (27:2). Clypeus with puncturing smaller than eye facets (31:1); spread evenly across surface (32:2). Anterior edge of clypeus flat; anterior corners rounded (30:1). Clypeus tumid (33:1).

Distribution ( Fig. 28): Brazil (Mato Grosso), Guatemala (Escuintla), Honduras (Atlántida), Costa Rica (Guanacaste), Panama ( Panama), Mexico (Colima, Nayarit, México, Veracruz, Chiapas), Venezuela (Aragua).

Etymology: The specific epithet hirsuta  is a reference to the distinctive golden setae that is present on the prosternum and hypomeron of this species. It is feminine.
