Hylobothynus obesus Ohaus, 1910: 678   .

Diagnosis. Endrödi (1985) differentiated Hylobothynus obesus   using the basal margin of the pronotum strongly bordered, which is not bordered at its base in H. columbianus   . Furthermore, the pygidium   of H. obesus   is sparsely punctate on the lateral angles, whereas it is more punctate in H. columbianus   . The parameres of H. obesus   are shorter and wider ( Figs. 46–47 View FIGURES 40 – 48 ) than those of H. columbianus   ( Figs. 41–42 View FIGURES 40 – 48 ).
