Cyrtomenus (Syllobus) teter (Spinola) 

Diagnosis. This species may be recognized by a combination of three features: regularly rounded outline of head, less than ten setigerous punctures on costa, and the short rostrum which does not surpass the posterior coxae.

Head. Anterior outlining a flattened semicircle, tylus as long as juga; surface shining, with faint to moderate radiating rugae, punctuation fine or absent. Pronotum. Lateral margin with 16 to 18 setigerous punctures submarginally; transverse impression more strongly impressed laterally than medially, marked with irregular, medially interrupted row of coarse punctures; anterior lobe impunctate except for few punctures laterally and irregularly, transverse row of coarse punctures subapically; posterior lobe polished, with few widely scattered punctures. Scutellum disc impunctate or with few widely scattered punctures. Clavus and corium polished; clavus with one complete row of punctures, sometimes also with several scattered punctures; mesocorium with two rows of punctures paralleling claval suture; exocorium with punctuation much more sparse than on mesocorium; costa with five or seven setigerous punctures.
