Hesus flaviventris ( BURMEISTER 1835) ( Fig. 2 View Fig , 15, 16 View Fig , 25 View Fig ; photo 6)

Described as Dysodius flaviventris from Brazil, it was transferred to Hesus by STÅL 1862. A specimen of Burmeister’s collection in the Humboldt Museum Berlin was examined to ascertain the species identity as understood in the literature, which can be confirmed.

It is – besides H. acuminatus – the largest species, generally of dark brown to blackish colour, the posterior half of deltg III-VI are ochraceous as are the apodemal impressions of deltgVII. Antennae brown, base of antennal segment I and apex of IV sometimes ochraceous; legs unicolorous brown without paler rings on tibiae (photo 6). Although dorsally of generally darker colouration, that of the venter is similar to that of H. cordatus .

Pronotum with evenly rounded lateral margins of anterior lobe, median tubercles between oblique elevations elongated backward followed by larger tubercles (fig.2). Spiracles II-V ventral, VI sublateral and not visible from above, VII lateral and visible from above, VIII terminal. Terminal segments fig. 15, 16. Parameres wide, dorsal face deeply excavared laterally (fig. 25), ventral face with a file of 25-27 transverse carinae.

M e a s u r e m e n t s Length 33 10.5-10.8mm, ♀♀ 11.6-12.0mm; ratio length of antennae / width of head 2.4-2.5; ratio antennal segment I / segment II 1.5-1.7.
