In black: a longitudinal line in the outer surface of antennal segments Ito III, apex of segment II, apical half of segment III, and apical three-fourths of segments IV and V; dorsal punctures onlateral margins of tibia; apicalportion of tibia; all firstand second tarsisegments and basal half of third. Reddish to grayish spots present on hemelytral membrane.

Head. Triangular, 0.5 times longer than wide (males head length: 2.6 ± 0.1; females: 2.6; males head width: 2.0; female: 2.2; males interocular distance: 1.6; females: 1.8 ± 0.06). Juga surpassing clypeus, slightly juxtaposed at apex; external margins convex. Proportion of antennal segments: I> II> III ≈ IV ≈ V (male antennal segments length: I = 1.3; II = 1.7 ± 0.11; III = 2.1 ± 0.11; IV = 2.1 ± 0.06; females: I = 1.3; II = 1.7 ± 0.11; III = 2.1, IV = 2.3 ± 0.11; V = 2.3). Bucculae evanescent at base; anterior angle truncated. Rostrum reaching metacoxae, first rostral segment slightly surpassing bucculae; proportion of rostral segments: I <II> III ≈ IV (males rostralsegments length: I = 1.3 ± 0.06; II = 2.0 ± 0.08; III = 1.5 ± 0.05; IV = 1.3 ± 0.04; females: I = 1.5 ± 0.14; II = 2.0 ± 0.03; III = 1.8 ± 0.06; IV = 1.3 ± 0.11).

Pronotum. Trapezoidal, puncturesdenser on posteriorhalf; cicatrices immaculate. Anterior third of anterolateral margins slightly crenulated. Humeral angles acute, but not produced into spines (males pronotum length: 2.7 ± 0.05; females: 2.8; males pronotum width: 7.5 ± 0.25; females: 8.2 ± 0.11).

Scutellum. Apex rounded, punctures uniformly distributed. Scutellum length: males 4.7 ± 0.2; females 4.9 ± 0.06; scutellum width: males 4.5 ± 0.2; females 4.3.

Hemelytra. Wide, almost completely covering connexival segments. Corium uniformly punctured, apical angle rounded and surpassing posterior half of conexivum VII; yellowish callus at apex of radial vein present.

Thoracic venter. Ostiolar rugae attaining nearly ¾ of metapleura width, ostiolar orifice elliptical. Dorsal surface of femur with inconspicuous projection at apex; tibiae dorsally sulcated.

Abdominal venter. Strongly convex; anterior margins of spiraclessurrounded by yellowish callus.

Male genitalia ( Figs. 4-5 View Figs , 11-14 View Figs ). Pygophore rectangular, 0.1 times longer than wide ( Fig. 5-6 View Figs ); dorsal wall with half the length of pygophore. Dorsal rim emarginated medially; lateral third of dorsal rim folded toward the genital chamber; marginal process digitiform ( Fig. 5 View Figs ; mp). Posterolateral angles slightly produced. Median excavation of ventral rim U-shaped in ventral view ( Fig. 6 View Figs ); infolding of ventral rim with 1+1 darkish process dorsally produced, on the sides of the excavation.

Hypandriumlonger than ventral rim, in abroad laminar-like expansion dorsally; ventrally, with a bilobate process and 1+1 tumescentareas ( Figs. 5-6 View Figs ). Apexof parameres elongated and flat at inner surface; apical spine present, medial spineabsent ( Fig. 11 View Figs ). Segment Xconstricted medially; basal surface convex, apex ogival ( Fig. 5 View Figs ).

Articulatory apparatus about half the length of phallotheca ( Figs. 12-13 View Figs ). Phallotheca cylindrical, opening dorso-posteriorly, with two pairs of processes: 1+1 elliptical at base of dorsal wall (= processus phallothecae I) ( Fig. 12 View Figs ; ppht I); 1+1 ear-like at postero-lateral angles of ventral wall (= processus phallothecae II) ( Fig. 13 View Figs ; ppht II). Conjunctiva reduced, completely obscured by phallotheca. Vesica obovate; basal portion surrounded by a collarlike process ( Fig. 12 View Figs ; ve).

Female genitalia ( Figs. 16-17 View Figs ). Genital plates hairy. Gonocoxites 8 quadrangular and flat; posterior margin slightly convex; sutural margins divergent at posterior forth ( Fig. 16 View Figs ). Apical angles of laterotergites 8 and 9 acute, black in color; laterotergites 9 not surpassing laterotergites 8 in length ( Fig. 16 View Figs ). Gonocoxites 9 trapezoidal, posterior margins subrectilinear ( Fig. 16 View Figs ). Capsula seminalis subcylindrical ( Fig. 17 View Figs ; cs), with three processes variable in length ( Fig. 17 View Figs ; pcs): two reaching the free margin of the annular crest, and one surpassing the margin.

Differential diagnosis. This species can be distinguished from other species of Chloropepla by characters of male and female genitalia. In males the parameres with apex elongated; apical spine present, medial spine absent ( Fig. 11 View Figs ) and hypandrium with a broad laminar-like expansion dorsally; ventrally, with a bilobate process and 1+1 tumescent areas ( Figs. 5-6 View Figs ). The shape of gonocoxites 8 and apex of laterotergites 8 acute ( Fig. 16 View Figs ) separate the female of C. stysi sp. nov. from the remaining species.

Etymology. This species is dedicated to Prof. Pavel Štys for his great contribution to the knowledge of the heteropterous insects.

Bionomics. Unknown.

Distribution. Chloropepla stysi sp. nov. is distributed in northern Brazil, in Amazonas state, Coari and Juruá localities.
