Diagnosis. Femur concolorous. Elytron with sutural and lateral apices prolonged, spinose. Male middle not excavate nor densely setose in apical half; posterior tibia with apical excavation and dense brush. Elytral apex shallowly arcuate between lateral and apical apices. Abdominal sterna III­V with 2 bilateral patches of sparse setae.

Description. Color and luster: Somber colored beetles with pale antennae, slightly infuscated femora which contrast with the pale testaceous tibiae and tarsi.

Form: Head ( Fig. 22 a View FIGURE 22. A ) behind eyes moderately elongate, rounded in both sexes. Male middle and posterior tibiae neither excavate nor densely setose in apical half. Elytron with apex ( Fig. 22 View FIGURE 22. A b) shallowly arcuate between lateral and apical apices; interneurs a series of large deep foveae.

Other specimens examined. Costa Rica: 7 paratypes, 2 males, 5 females from the following Conservation Area: Arenal Tilarán, Cordillera Volcanica Central, Tortuguero. I have seen one additional female from Panamá and labeled it as a paratype. Costa Rica, Alajuela, 1 f, P.N.

Specific epithet. The specific epithet, notcatie , is used as a noun in apposition based on the acronym of CATIE (see above), and in reference to the species described above, A. catie , which this is not , because of the attributes described above.

Notes. This species was collected on Virola koschnyi at La Selva Biological Station by the ALAS Project. Notcatie­subgroup stylomere 2 are similar to those of Agra castaneipes , see that web page. F. Hovore collected a female at combined “MV & UV lights” at CATIE .
