Identification. Our material was identified based on the apterous males, which have the pronotum long, completely covering the mesonotum ( Fig. 11A); the hind trochanter with a few small spines and a larger apical spine; the hind tibia with small subequal spines throughout its length and a straight apical spur; and the sides of abdominal segment VII with patches of small black denticles ( Magalhães et al. 2016). Females were associated with males from the same locality based on the general appearance and by comparison with the original description of the species.
