Female macropterous forms of M. membranacea   and M. chinai   are very similar in general coloration, both possessing the hemelytra whitish with similar stripe shapes (compare Figures 4 View Figures 1–4 and 5 View Figures 5–8 ). The relation between the membrane and the hemelytral process cannot be used in macropterous forms because this is short and appears at the end of the corium, not reaching the apex of membrane. Male macropterous forms were not observed. This species can be easily recognized by (1) the presence of a median longitudinal stripe bifurcate near the apex, and (2) the hemelytral process extending to the apex of membrane in brachypterous specimens ( Figure 4A,B View Figures 1–4 ).

Martarega membranacea   is a common species occurring roughly from northern to southeastern Brazil, as well as in the State of Goiás (Figure 15A). Its distribution is roughly parallel to that of M. chinai   but more northerly (Figure 13B).
