( Figures 12View FIGURE 12 A–D, 29B, 32)

Tabanus palpalis Brèthes, 1910: 477  ; Brèthes, 1921: 54 ( Argentina spp.); Coscarón, 1967: 127 ( Argentina spp.); Fairchild, 1971: 98 (cat.), 1976: 250, fig. 7 (rev.); Moucha, 1976: 129 (cat.); Coscarón, 1979: 276, figs. 7C-H (taxonomy); Henriques & Gorayeb, 1993: 19 (MPEG spp.); Fairchild & Burger, 1994: 145 (cat.); Henriques, 1997: 88 (INPA spp.); Chainey, et al., 1994: 336 ( Bolivia spp.); Barros & Gorayeb, 1996: 548 (Pantanal spp.); Barros, 2001: 919, 920 (seasonality Pantanal spp.); Coscarón & Papavero, 2009: 138 (cat.); Lima et al., 2015: 7 (Tocantins spp.); Krolow & Henriques, 2017: 4 (Mato Grosso do Sul spp.).

Tabanus callosus Macquart  , of Brèthes, 1907: 284 (cat., misident.).

Tabanus trivittatus Fabricius  ; Wulp, 1881: 160 ( Argentina record, misident.); Brèthes, 1907: 285.

Tabanus lucidecallosus Fairchild, 1942b: 163  , pl. l, fig. l; Bequaert & Renjifo-Salcedo, 1946: 79 ( Colombia spp.).

Diagnosis. Postpedicel of antenna nearly the same length of style. Subcallus brown, only slightly inflated in lateral view. Frons clearly divergent above, avertex two times wider than base. Notopleuron with integument lighter than adjacent scutum. Femora black or at least basally infuscated. Middorsal stripe even through tergite 6. Dorsolateral slightly irregular through tergite 4.

Comments. A series from Barra dos Bugres, Mato Grosso, has the fore coxa yellow. These specimens may be difficult to be identified with the keys provided here. We consider this character not enough to characterize a new taxon since the color of coxae is known to vary within the same species of the group. This is probably just a paler form of T. palpalis  .

Material examined. BRASIL, Tocantins, Araguacema; Pará, Conceição do Araguaia (16 ♀ INPA)  ; São Paulo, Cássia dos Coqueiros, Cajuru (13 ♀ MZUSP, 8 ♀ INPA)  ; São Paulo, Araçatuba, Fazenda Jacarecatinga (7 ♀ MZUSP)  , Guatapará (3 ♀ MZUSP)  ; PARAGUAY, San Pedro, Carumbé (2 ♀ MZUSP)  .
