Identification. Like S. ayacucho   , our specimens of S. tersa   have the stridulatory structure on the lateral margin of the abdominal laterotergites formed by a row of widely separated knob-like denticles ( Fig. 13C, F).

However, they have the first four or five visible abdom- inal segments with transverse lateral sulci (two in S. ayacucho   ), and the female lacks projections on abdominal tergite VIII (present in S. ayacucho   ) ( Floriano et al. 2017).
