Amnestus uhleri Distant 

Diagnosis: The large size of the body and the greatly elongated clypeus strongly mark this species as different from all others in the genus. Body lenght 4.04 to 4.46 mm.

Head. Clypeus surpassing truncated apices of juga, surface irregular, impunctate, shining; jugum with five marginal pegs becoming thicker and longer distally. Pronotum. Anterior margin shallowly and simply emarginated, anterior angles not cupped; lateral margins entire, transverse impression moderate, punctuate; anterior lobe tumid, impunctate except for single lateral subapical row of very closely set, coarse punctures; posterior lobe, except umbones, with numerous small punctures. Prosternal carinae about as high as labial II, evanescent anteriorly, obtusely angled posteriorly. Scutellum. Width greater than length. Hemelytron. Mesocorium with numerous punctures becoming finer and closer apically; exocorium with numerous punctures becoming obsolete toward costa; costa subparallel on basal half. Legs. Anterior femur ventrally with premedian stout, unequally furcated spine; anterior tibia with ventral margin straight, neither angled nor toothed medially; posterior femur with subapical spine almost at a right angle bent at middle.

Old records. Zapote (Distant 1880–1893)
