Dissomphalus tupinikim Colombo & Azevedo  , sp. nov.

( Figs 4View FIGURES 2 – 7, 25View FIGURES 20 – 25, 100–102View FIGURES 96 – 104)

Description. Male. Head and mesosoma black; metasoma dark castaneous. Mandible with two apical teeth; median clypeal lobe trapezoidal, median tooth rounded; frons strongly coriaceous, punctate. Pronotal disc strongly coriaceous. T2 with pair tufts of setae directed backward, lateral, without depression and tubercle. Posterior hypopygeal margin straight. Genitalia: paramere with apex rounded, slightly arched inward, very wide, longer than basiparamere; volsella very wide; aedeagal ventral ramus smaller than dorsal body, laminar, narrow, fork at the base, rounded apex; dorsal body with two pairs apical lobes, outer pair wide and rounded in lateral view, apical and ventral margin with many setae, inner pair membranous; apodeme extending beyond genital ring. Female unknown.

Variations. Paramere slightly; dorsal body with apex weakly rounded.

Remarks. This species is now included in punctatus  species-group by having the tergal process with tufts of setae directed backward and tubercles absent. This species has the genitalia similar to those of D. punctatus  . However, this species has the median clypeal lobe subtrapezoidal, aedeagal dorsal body with apex short and apical and ventral margins of aedeagal dorsal body with many setae, whereas D. punctatus  has the median clypeal lobe trapezoidal, aedeagal dorsal body with apex wide and apical and ventral margins of aedeagal dorsal body without many setae.

Theses species goes to couplet 80 on the key proposed by Redighieri & Azevedo (2006) and should be read as:

80. Apex of outer aedeagal dorsal body with ventral margin serrated, long filament present between pair outer................
