Martarega chinai   is widely distributed in northern South America, also occurring in the southeastern region of Brazil (Figure 13B). In spite of resembling M. membranacea   in having a median longitudinal stripe bifurcated near the apex of hemelytra ( Figure 5A,B View Figures 5–8 ) and similar right clasper ( Figures 4C View Figures 1–4 , 5D View Figures 5–8 ), M. chinai   can be recognized by the format of the left clasper, which is distinct, with a longitudinal carina along its length ( Figure 5E View Figures 5–8 ). The alleged “nodule” on ventral surface of male mesotrochanter ( Figures 5C View Figures 5–8 ), which differentiates M. chinai   from M. membranacea   , is a group of short bristles as observed in M. gonostyla   ( Figure 8C View Figures 5–8 ). Females of this species can be distinguished from females of M. membranacea   by their hemelytral process not extending to tip of membrane ( Figure 5B View Figures 5–8 ). In female M. membranacea   , the hemelytral process visibly reaches the apex of membrane ( Figure 4B View Figures 1–4 ).
