Orbital band faint, almost indistinct or missing ( Figs 13A–C View FIGURE 13 ) (vs. distinct); pronotal collar entirely reddish brown (vs. with white mark); upper edge of pronotum reddish-brown (vs. white); subtegular ridge and tegula reddish brown ( Fig. 13G View FIGURE 13 ) (vs. white); postscutellum yellowish (vs. reddish brown); upper division of metapleuron and metapleuron posterior corner with whitish marks (vs. entirely reddish brown); hind t1 basally blackish (vs. white); hind t4–5 blackish ( Figs 13E–H View FIGURE 13 ) (vs. white); tergites entirely reddish brown ( Fig. 13I–K View FIGURE 13 ) (vs. apically brownish).

Three females from Santa Teresa (Espírito Santo State, southeastern Brazil) have supraclypeal area centrally with a black spot ( Fig. 13A View FIGURE 13 ).

One female from Parque Estadual do Rio Doce (Minas Gerais State, southeastern Brazil) has fore wing with brownish mark only apically ( Fig. 12H View FIGURE 12 ) (vs. present medially and apically).

One female from Guaratuba (Paraná State, southern Brazil) without orbital band ( Fig. 13B View FIGURE 13 ) (vs. distinct).

One female from Capão do Leão (Rio Grande do Sul State, southern Brazil) has petiolar area of propodeum medially with two whitish spots (vs. absent); second recurrent vein meeting areolet at its basal 0.4 or apical 0.35– 0.45 (vs. at middle); areolet wider than high (vs. squarish, as wide as high); hind wing nervellus intercepted a little or distinctly above the middle (vs. at middle).

One female from João Neiva (Espírito Santo State, southeastern Brazil) has the following whitish structures (vs. whitish absent): scutellum, postscutellum, upper division of metapleuron, spot on postero ventral corner of mesopleuron and metapleuron, a mark on propodeum posteriorly, dorsal spot on all coxae, and tergites posteriorly.

Distribution. Brazil (Espírito Santo NR, Minas Gerais, Paraná NR, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul NR, Santa Catarina NR, São Paulo) ( Fig. 20E View FIGURE 20 ). Bootstrap analysis suggests that this species occurs typically between 100–500 m, like most Agonocryptus spp. ( Fig. 21G View FIGURE 21 ).

Material examined. Total of 22 specimens, 22♀.
