Identification. Our specimens of B. lata   can be distinguished from B. albinervus   and other species of the genus based on the eye surpassing the anterolateral angle of the pronotum ( Fig. 5E); the quadrate posterior margin of the pronotum ( Fig. 5E); the lack of silvery setae on the dorsum of the acetabula ( Fig. 5E, G); and the fore femur slender, densely covered by conical black setae on the venter ( Cordeiro 2017).
