Measurements. total length: 14.6–17.2; head length: 2.1–2.3; head width: 3.3–3.6; pronotal width: 9.3–10.6; abdominal width: 7.4–9.1; length of antennal segments. I: 0.7–0.9; II: 0.7–0.9; III: 1.4–1.7; IV: 2.6–2.9; V: 2.7–2.9; interocular distance: 1.8–1.9; scutellum length: 6.8–7.7; scutellum width: 5.2–5.6; pronotal length: 3.3–3.8.

Diagnosis. Punctures of anterior part of scutellum not on dark spots ( Fig. 19IView FIGURE 19). Connexivum uniformly green ( Fig. 19IView FIGURE 19). Abdomen ventrally with dark green transverse stripes on intersegmental areas and pseudosutures ( Fig. 19JView FIGURE 19). Pronotum with punctures light brown or concolorous, sparser on disc. Cicatrices of pronotum with concolorous to dark punctures delimiting anterior sulci. Anterolateral margin of pronotum punctured. Scutellum with apex not punctured ( Fig. 19IView FIGURE 19). Black spot of costal margin reaching approximately 1/4 of corial extension. Dorsal surface of abdomen green with lateral margins brown. Connexivum with some few concolorous punctures concentrated in excavated areas ( Fig. 19IView FIGURE 19). Male ( Fig.11View FIGURE 11 A–C). Dorsal rim of pygophore shallowly excavated, with rectangular median notch ( Fig. 11AView FIGURE 11). Inner wall with large tumescence close posterolateral angles ( Fig. 11BView FIGURE 11). Superior process of genital cup elliptic ( Fig. 11BView FIGURE 11). Paramere large, hatchet-shaped; posterior lobe not developed. Proctiger strongly excavated laterally forming a conspicuous dorsal ridge ( Fig. 11A,BView FIGURE 11); dense tuft of setae on lateral excavation; posterior face triangular and small ( Fig. 11BView FIGURE 11). Ventral rim central excavation widely open; expansions small, slightly dorsally bent, not reaching level of posterolateral angle in ventral view ( Fig. 11CView FIGURE 11). Female ( Fig. 11DView FIGURE 11). Gonocoxites 8 posterior margin arched; inner angle rounded slightly projected over gonocoxites 9; sutural border with distal half in “U”. Gonapophysis 8 widely exposed.

Comments. Bergroth (1891) related Edessa subrastrata  to E. triangularis  and E. affinis  , but the morphological characteristics pointed by the author are, actually, shared by many species. Hypoxys triangularis  is closer to H. subrastratus  but is larger and has a smoky stripe on pronotum ( Fig. 19E and 19IView FIGURE 19). Edessa affinis  is smaller, its metasternal process has apices of the arms rounded and genitalia from both sexes are quite different from H. subrastratus  . The male is described here for the first time.

Distribution ( Fig. 22View FIGURE 22). BRAZIL: Pará, Maranhão, Goiás, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul; ARGENTINA: Candelaria; BOLIVIA: La Paz; PARAGUAY: Paraguarí.
