Tominotus hogenhoferi (Signoret) 

Diagnosis. The broad band of the setigerous punctures along the sides of the pronotum plus the impunctate abdomen will identify this species.

Head. Juga rounded, forming a flattened semicircle, as long as tylus, latter with two subapical setigerous punctures giving rise to a row of stout pegs with numerous cilia scattered between and mesially; surface flattened, vertex and tylus smooth; rostrum reaching between middle coxae. Pronotum with anterior margin broadly and deeply emarginated; lateral margins entire, not emarginated, with a broad, submarginal line of many setigerous punctures; transverse impression at midlength, vague, marked by an irregular row of moderate punctures; anterior lobe polished, impunctate except for a few punctures laterally; posterior lobe polished, with a few scattered punctures. Scutellum surface smooth, with numerous well-separated punctures becoming fine apically; apex broadly rounded, wider than half of membrane suture. Corial areas well defined; surface polished and punctures scattered, fine on apical half, becoming coarser toward base and in two rows paralleling claval suture; costa with 14 or 15 setigerous punctures; membrane suture weakly bisinuated, rounded at lateral angle. Legs moderately long, not unusually modified.
