Dissomphalus extrarramis Azevedo 1999a: 320  (Ƌ, holotype from São Paulo, DZUP, figs 150, 151); 2003: 56; Redighieri & Azevedo, 2006: 307.

Diagnosis. Male. Black. Mandible with three apical teeth. Clypeus with large median tooth. Front strongly coriaceous. Vertex nearly straight. T2 with transverse, elliptical median depression, slightly deep, not so large, with pair of lateral setose tubercles, so that depression becomes biconcave in dorsal view, tubercle small, slightly directed to each other, their lateral margins very weakly setose. Genitalia: paramere with sharp apex; digitus with basal projection elongate, sharp; aedeagal ventral ramus elongate, sinuous, shorter than dorsal body; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs apical lobes, outer pair laminar, surface vertical, arched downward apically, apex sharpened tooth, large and subquadratic ventral projection, ventral margin serrated; inner pair membranous, densely setose. Female unknown.

Variations. Some specimens show dorsal body aedeagus with one tooth and two teeth, may both be the same size or larger than the other. Presence or absence a ventral tooth covered by the inner lobe.

Remarks. Twelve specimens of D. extrarramis  were registered from Espírito Santo (Azevedo, 2003; Redighieri & Azevedo, 2006), and we add more 66 new ones.
