Peltidocylapus rugosus ( Distant, 1883)

( Figs 6a View FIGURE 6 , 8g View FIGURE 8 , 14a–e View FIGURE 14 )

Valdasus rugosus Distant, 1883: 245 , pl. 24, fig. 10 (sp. nov.).

Valdasus rugosus: Carvalho & Dolling 1976: 806 (discussion of type).

Cylapus (Peltidocylapus) rugosus: Bergroth 1920: 71 (list); Carvalho 1957: 31 (catalog)

Peltidocylapus rugosus: Carvalho & Fontes 1968: 276 (list); Carvalho & Dolling 1976: 806 (discussion of type); Schuh 1995: 32 (catalog), 2002–2013 (online catalog); Gorczyca 2006a: 19 (catalog).

Diagnosis. Recognized by the following set of features: dorsum dark brown ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ); antennal segment II with relatively broad, apical, white annulation that is as wide as half of interocular distance ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ); posterior lobe of pronotum with distinct swelling medially ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ); scutellum distinctly convex, with longitudinal swelling medially ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ); anal vein with short, yellow stripe subapically ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ); endosoma membranous; distal sclerotized part of ductus seminis (dss) short, rectangular ( Figs 14a, b View FIGURE 14 ); ventro-apical margin of ductus seminis inside endosoma with deep incision ( Fig. 14b View FIGURE 14 ); left paramere apical process with short basolateral outgrowth ( Figs 14c, d View FIGURE 14 ).

Redescription. Female. COLORATION ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ). Dorsum dark brown. Head. Dark brown with dark yellow areas medially and laterally; antenna dark brown; antennal segment II with relatively broad, apical, white annulation that is as wide as half of interocular distance; labium dark brown. Thorax. Pronotum, mesoscutum, scutellum and hemelytron. Dark brown; anal vein with short, yellow stripe subapically. Thoracic pleura. Dark brown; metathoracic scent gland evaporative areas tinged with dark yellow posteriorly. Legs. Pro– and mesocoxae dark brown; metacoxa yellow, dark brown basally; femora dark castaneous, with yellow annulation subapically; metafemur with broad, yellow annulation basally; tibiae dark castaneous; tarsi brown, tinged with dark yellow. Abdomen. Black, tinged with dark yellow. TEXTURE AND VESTITURE ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ). Thorax. Mesoscutum, scutellum, and hemelytron. Covered with short, fine, dense, recumbent setae. STRUCTURE ( Fig. 6a View FIGURE 6 ). Thorax. Pronotum. Posterior lobe with distinct swelling medially. Scutellum. With strongly convex, broad longitudinal swelling medially. Hemelytron. Surface between R+M vein and medial fracture rugose. Abdomen. Genitalia. Endosoma membranous ( Figs 14a, b View FIGURE 14 ); distal sclerotized part of ductus seminis (dss) short, rectangular, with transparent portion dorsally ( Figs 14a, b View FIGURE 14 ); ventro-apical margin of ductus seminis inside endosoma with deep incision ( Fig. 14b View FIGURE 14 ); left paramere C-shaped, apical process with short process basolaterally ( Figs 14c, d View FIGURE 14 ); right paramere sickle-shaped ( Figs 14e View FIGURE 14 ).

Male. Like female in color, structure, texture, and vestiture.

Measurements. ♂ / ♀, lecotype measurements second. Body. Length: 7.00/6.40, width 2.00/2.3. Head. Length: 0.51/0.50, width: 1.1/1.2, interocular distance 0.40/0.43. Antenna. Length of segment I: 0.73/0.62, II: 2.6/2.75, III: 2.8/3.10, IV: 3.15/3.5. Labium (immeasurable in holotype). Length of segment I: 0.70, II: 0.87, III: 0.85, IV: 0.35. Pronotum. Length: 1.00/1.00, width of anterior margin: 1.10/1.10, length of lateral margin: 1.05/1.00, width of posterior margin: 2.20/2.20.

Biology. Unknown, collected on fallen trees covered with black fungi ( Distant 1883).

Distribution. Costa Rica (Cartago), Guatemala (Senahu).

Remarks. Most like P. scutellaris in sharing the clavus having a short, yellow stripe apically ( Figs 6a, b View FIGURE 6 ), the distal portion of ductus seminis inside endosoma (dss) short, not caliciform with ventro-apical margin concave in the middle ( Figs 14a, b, f, h View FIGURE 14 ), and the left paramere apical process lateral outgrowth short ( Figs 14c, d, i, j View FIGURE 14 ). It can be distinguished by the presence of deeper incision on ventro-apical margin of the dss ( Fig. 14b View FIGURE 14 ).

Type material. Lectotype ♀: Senahu Vera Paz, Champion; B.C.A. Hem I Cylapus rugosus (BMNH) .

Additional examined material. ♂: Costa Rica: Cartago, P. N. Tapantí, 1150 m, 9º45’41”N, 83º47’5’’, 18 Jul 2000, J. Ashe, R. Brooks, Z. Falin, CR1ABF00 166, ex: logging fungus covered log.; SM0 207000 KUHM–ENT ( KU).
