Types: ɗ holotype in FNS (examined) with following data: "Monte Socorro 2300 m / [Valle del Cauca Dept.] Colombia, W. Cordill./ vii. 0 9 [A.H.] Fassl"; (Senckenberg Register No. 10764).

Characterization. Medial lobe of posterior lobe of prothorax is slightly constricted at base, subquadrate, with shallow medial concavity on posterior margin ( Fig. 26View FIGURES 25 – 29; as in O. acutum  and O. quadricolor  ). Distal segment of genital ligula ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 49 – 53) approximately as wide at apex as at base with two contiguous pairs of lateroapical lobes (unique) recurved and directed basally, small accessory latero-medial lobes and one (as in O. prothoracicum  ) ental membranous faint transverse fold ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 49 – 53 c). Dorsal process of male cercus much shorter than ventral process, represented by a blunt setose tubercle ( Figs. 89View FIGURES 85 – 89; 94; unique). Dorsum of S 1 dark brown, posteriorly with a transverse oval greenish blue spot; of S 2 orange becoming diffuse brown anteriorly; of S 3– 5 pale orange-red; of S 6 orange antero-laterally, black dorso-posteriorly; of S 7 black with a narrow reddish lateral margin over the anterior three fourths; of S 8–9 blue, laterally reddish, both colors separated through a black longitudinal stripe; of S 10 black. Female unknown.

Diagnosis. This species, known only from the mature holotype male, is unique in that the dorsal process of the cercus is represented by a blunt setose tubercle ( Figs. 89View FIGURES 85 – 89; 94). In all other species the dorsal process is either long and digit-like ( O. acutum  , Figs. 85View FIGURES 85 – 89; 90; O. thelkterion  , Figs. 86View FIGURES 85 – 89; 91) or acute if small ( O. prothoracicum  , Figs. 87View FIGURES 85 – 89; 92; O. quadricolor  , Figs. 88View FIGURES 85 – 89 a; 93). The distal segment of the genital ligula ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 49 – 53 a) is uniquely armed with a pair of small contiguous latero-apical lobes (a single long latero-apical recurved lobe in O. thelkterion  , Fig. 49View FIGURES 49 – 53 b; O. quadricolor  , Fig. 50View FIGURES 49 – 53 b; and O. acutum  , Fig. 51View FIGURES 49 – 53 b; and a single small latero-apical lobe in O. prothoracicum  , Fig. 53View FIGURES 49 – 53 b).

Biology. Unknown; see remarks under generic account.

Distribution. Colombia (Valle del Cauca Department) at 2300 m above sea level ( Fig. 104View FIGURE 104). Following information about this locality is provided by Ris (1918): "......Santa Margarita ('situated deep in the high mountain forest at 2200 m is the last house Santa Margarita, on upper bank of Rio Cali, the estate of a Colombian general'); out from here the gold mine Monte Socorro is reachable with effort."
