Paralectotypes. The description of this species was based on an undetermined number of specimens.

Diagnosis. From superficially similar specimens of the two species described below, members of this species differ by having the anterior half of the elytra dark brown, except that the humeral angles are yellow. Differences in the aedeagus will also separate these species (compare Figs. 27–29 View Figs ).

Description. Size: Length 7.5 mm; width 2.0 mm. Form ( Fig. 120 View Fig ): Oblong, slightly triangular. Integumental color ( Figs. 37, 38): Cranium bicolored, lower frons and dorsolateral epicranium yellow, upper frons, vertex, and middiscal epicranium, ventrolateral epicranium black, antennae dark brown; pronotum dark brown at lower sides and centrally on disc, yellow in upper sides and along anterior margin; mesoscutellum black; legs dark brown, except yel- low in proximal half of femora. Head: HW/PW 0.9; EW/ VW 1.2; antenna as in Fig. 15 View Figs , funicle compressed, length half of eighth antennomere. Thorax: Pronotum ( Fig. 19 View Figs ) with obtuse lateral tubercle; PL / PW 0.8; elytra long rectangular, EL/ PL 4.6; EL/ EW 2.6; anterior margin of protibia with 14 spines. Male genitalia: Aedeagus as in Fig. 27 View Figs . Male mesodermal internal reproductive organs ( Fig. 34 View Figs ): Medial gland shorter than convoluted lateral gland.

Variation. Size: length 7.5–8.8 mm; width 2.0– 2.9 mm. There is considerable variation in the coloration of the elytra ( Figs. 37, 38).

Natural History. Specimens have been collected in June, August, and October. One specimen was captured at 290 m elevation.

Distribution. Distributed within the Amazonian regions of Peru and Brazil ( Map 1 View Map 1 ).
