Neocompsa aspasia Martins, 1974: 148   ; Monné, 2021: 547 (cat.).

The description of Neocompsa aspasia   was based on a single female from Ecuador (Loja). Martins (2009) included it in a key to South American species of Neocompsa Martins, 1965   , and recorded the species from Costa Rica (Cartago). According to Martins (2009), N. aspasia   differs from the South American species of the genus by having elytra not pubescent, unarmed at apex and with longitudinal whitish bands. In fact, in N. lenticula Martins, 1970   , the posterior whitish macula is rounded; and in N. micromacula Martins & Galileo, 1999   , the whitish maculae are somewhat small and subelliptical. In Central America, the most similar species with these features is N. exclamationis (Thomson, 1860)   , but in this species the posterior whitish band is hook-shaped.
