Diagnosis

No trace of medial tubercle adjacent to each eye. Frontal carina as wide as clypeo-frontal carina. Pronotum mesoanteriorly with trapezoidal structure and a lateral tubercle on each side of the central structure. Small depression marked by points on each side, between the tubercle and the central structure ( Figure 3 View Figure 3 (a)).

Neotype. ‘ Brasília / DF – BRASIL / xii-1987 / leg: V-de-M ( CEMT 00074109 )’.

Redescription

Body size: Length: 6.86–8.95 mm. Width: 5.12–6.89 mm. Head: No trace of medial tubercle adjacent to each eye. Frontal carina as wide as clypeo-frontal carina, frons presents a transverse carina that meets the lateral carinae that extend from the clypeus; region between the clypeus and the frons carina is concave. Punctuation more concentrated in the anterior region of the head, with a cluster of deep and well-defined points. Pronotum: Trapezoidal structure in the anterior part of the disc and tubercles (smaller than the transverse elevation), one on each side of the structure, the structures may vary according to the individual’s size; region between the transverse structure and the tubercles marked by points. Elytron: There are setae in the apical region of the external dorsal margin of the elytra (quantity varies among individuals). Male terminalia: In dorsal view, rounded parameres, in the form of capsules, base twisted to fit the phallobase that is larger than the parameres and phallobase with two horizontal spines at the apex ( Figure 7 View Figure 7 (a)). Sexual dimorphism: Males have weak and distinct punctuation in the posterior region of the clypeus and absent setae, while females have up to four setae in the posterior region of the clypeus and the rough and carenaded surface.

Designation of type material. According to the literature, the Castelnau collection was lost in a fire, but there is a possibility that the type may be in the MNHN miscellany. Unfortunately it was not possible to carry out a search; however, because it is the type species of the genus, for the confirmation of the taxa and so there are no further problems of identification, we propose to designate a neotype for the species. The specimen being proposed as a neotype originally belonged to the CEMT, and comes from the location closest to the type locality of the species. It is deposited at CEMT.

Differential diagnosis. Bolbapium striatopunctatum is morphologically similar to B. dutraorum sp. nov. and B. sergioidei sp. nov. in presenting the forehead with a transverse carina without tubercles formation on each side. However, it is easily distinguished by the difference in structures in the anterior region of the pronotum, that in B. striatopunctatum is a trapezoidal carina.

Geographical distribuition. Brazil (Distrito Federal, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina and São Paulo) and Argentina (Misiones).
