( Figs. 9–13 View FIGURES 1 – 13. 1 – 4 )

Holotype female. Integument orange. Dorsal side of head closely punctate, with short setae, slightly conspicuous. Coronal suture distinct to level of posterior margin of eyes. Area behind eyes smooth (except for some punctures behind upper eye lobes), shiny. Submentum transversely striate, with sparse, short setae. Outside of mandibles closely punctate at basal two-thirds, with very short setae interspersed with some long setae; distal third smooth, glabrous. Distance between upper eye lobes equal to 0.75 times length of scape; distance between lower eye lobes, in frontal view, equal to 0.8 times length of scape. Antennal length equal to 1.7 times elytral length; reaching elytral apex at middle of antennomere X; antennal formula based on length of antennomere III: scape = 1.19; pedicel = 0.30; IV = 0.61; V = 1.27; VI = 1.23; VII = 1.34; VIII = 1.15; IX = 1.07; X = 0.96; XI = 1.19.

Pronotum opaque, moderately coarse, shallow, abundantly punctate; disk with five callosities: one on each side of basal third, moderately conspicuous; one on each side of middle, slightly conspicuous; one central, at the same level of anterior callosity, conspicuous. Lateral sides of prosternum moderately coarse, abundantly punctate. Prosternum coarse, shallow, abundantly punctate at area closest to procoxal cavities, rugose-punctate at middle third, transversely striate at anterior third. Mesosternum shiny, coarsely punctate (punctures partly confluent at central region); laterally opaque. Metepisternum notably narrow, moderately abundant punctate, distinctly pubescent at distal sixth. Metasternum laterally opaque; coarse, abundantly punctate, sparser towards center; with sparse, short setae, interspersed with some long setae (pubescent at angle close to metepisternum and metacoxal cavities). Elytra coarse, abundantly punctate; each elytron with four rows of long setae; external apical angle with long spiniform projection; sutural angle with conspicuous triangular projection.

Femora with short setae interspersed with long setae. Metatarsomere I as long as metatarsomeres II –III together. Urosternites coarsely punctate, more abundant at center; with short setae interspersed with long setae.

Dimensions in mm (female). Total length, 6.7; length of prothorax at center, 1.4; anterior width of prothorax, 1.0; posterior width of prothorax, 1.0; humeral width, 1.6; elytral length, 4.5.

Type material. Holotype female, BRAZIL, Bahia: Morro do Chapéu ("povoado de São Rafael"), 17– 19.IX. 2012, F. E. Nascimento, A. Moreira & F. Bravo col. ( MZUSP).

Etymology. The species is named for Miguel A. Monné ( MNRJ), for his many contributions to the study of Cerambycidae   .
