This species was originally described based on 3 females from Colombia. Subsequently, Hovore (1989) recorded it for Costa Rica, and Monné and Giesbert (1994) for Mexico (Veracruz). The holotype female (see photograph at Bezark 2019), and a paratype female were destroyed by the 2018 fire that devas- tated the MNRJ. According to the original description a third paratype female is deposited in Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. The male of O. howdeni   is illustrated ( Fig. 6 View Figures 6–9 ) and commented on for the first time here. It differs from the female by the longer antennae (2.15 times elytral length, reaching elytral apex at basal third of antennomere VII), and has the last abdominal ventrite flattened and not centrally sulcate. In the female, the antennae are 1.85 times elytral length, reaching elytral apex at basal third of antennomere VIII, and the last abdominal ventrite is convex with a shallow longitudinal, central sulcus in basal half.
