Diagnosis. Frons divergent (D.I.> 2). All coxae and femora yellow. Notopleuron integument paler than adjacent scutum. Middorsal abdominal stripe even through tergite 6. Dorsolateral even and continuous through tergite 4 or 5. Subcallus dark brown to black, not conspicuously inflated under lateral view.

Male. Unknown.

Comments. Fairchild (1976) already highlighted the resemblance of this species to T. tristichus  , but differentiated them both by the more divergent frons of T. restrepoensis  , broader antennae, palpus more inflated basally and broader abdominal stripe in T. tristichus  . After examining specimens at the collections studied, we have seen that the antenna and palpus characters are very variable and not very useful to separate the two species. We decided to keep them separated, by the divergent frons, strongly bicolored tibia of T. restrepoensis  and geographic distribution, T. tristichus  is restricted to areas with coastal influence.
