Metacriodion capixaba Fragoso, 1970   ( Figs. 20-21 View Figures 12-22 )

According to Fragoso (1970), Metacriodion capixaba   differs from M. pictum (Waterhouse, 1880)   by the elytra mostly orangish, by the sub-diamond inferior sutural macula on the elytra, and by the reddish tubercles on sides of mesocoxal cavities.All these features agree exactly with the specimen examined by us.However,the shape of the inferior sutural macula on the elytra is variable and may be sub-diamond in M. pictum   too. Furthermore, the female of M. pictum   examined by us has the same reddish tubercles on sides of mesocoxal cavities. However, the holotype of M. capixaba   and the female examined by us do not have dense golden pubescence between the gibbosities of the pronotum, frons,vertex, and scutellum, while it is present on these areas of the holotype of M.pictum   , and also in one female examined by us, and specimens examined through photographs (see Bezark,2020).

Morvan & Morati (2011) recorded M. pictum   from French Guiana. However, the general color and absence of the golden pubescence suggest that the specimen ex-

amined by them is M. capixaba   . Material examined: BRAZIL, Espírito Santo: Linhares, 1 ♀,
