( Figs 13–14 View FIGURES 1 – 14. 1 – 12 )

Lycidola popeba Galileo & Martins, 2006: 789 ; Swift et al., 2010: 60 (distr.); Monné, 2016: 759 (cat.).

Galileo & Martins (2006) described Lycidola popeba based on a single male from Costa Rica. In doing so they commented that each elytron has three distinct carinae but failed to comment on the prosternal process. We observe that each elytron ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 1 – 14. 1 – 12 ) has only two distinct, complete carinae, with the third and innermost only moderately distinct at basal third, becoming even less so toward apex. Additionally, the prosternal process ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 1 – 14. 1 – 12 ) is very narrow.

Following the concept of Lycidola by Martins & Galileo (1991a), L. popeba should not have been included in this genus, since it does not have four carinae on each elytron and the prosternal process is narrow. Accordingly, Lycidola popeba is transferred to Apeba .
