Ceralocyna nigricollis ( Gounelle, 1911 )


Ceralocyna nigricollis ( Gounelle, 1911)  

Material examined: BRAZIL, Espírito Santo (new state record): Aracruz , 19°51′32″S, 40°13′05″W, 1 ♀, 22.V.1995, J.A.C. Simões col. ( MZSP) GoogleMaps   ; Linhares , 1 ♂, XI.1972, P.C. Elias col. ( MZSP). Minas Gerais (new state record): Belo Horizonte, 1 ♀, no additional data ( MZSP)   .

This species was described from Brazil (Goiás). Currently, it is known from Brazil (Mato Grosso, Goiás), Bolivia (Santa Cruz) ( Monné, 2020a). The species shows some chromatic variation: sides of pronotum orange or red   ; elytra mostly orange or red; prosternum entirely orange or with anterior area black; femora may be entirely black or meso- and metafemora bicolorous (basal third yellowish brown or reddish brown and remaining surface black).

Gounelle (1911) described C. terminata var. nigricollis   based on males and females. Monné & Giesbert (1992) considered this subspecies as distinct from C. terminata   . Comparing photographs of the holotype of C. terminata   with that of a syntype of C. nigricollis   , as well as with the specimens examined by us, C. nigricollis   differs from C. terminata   only by the elytral punctures not aligned in rows, while they are aligned in the latter.
