Remarks. New record for Misiones province

This species belongs to the inarmata group, which is characterized by the absence of a spine in the anten- niferous tubercles. Catorhintha divergens  can be easily distinguished by the combination of the following char- acters: the humeral angles of the pronotum expanded and acute, the scape ocher with a black outer band, thorax ventrally immaculate and with the dorsal segments of the abdomen bright orange with a reddish brown fascia media ( Brailovsky and García 1987).
