Distribution: Brazil ( PA new rec., AM new rec., PI new rec., TO new rec., MT, MG, DF new rec., SP, SC new rec., RS), Bolivia, Paraguay.

Remarks: Despite the resemblance to the genus Cyrtomenus  , the species presents an expansion in the second labial segment which helps to separate morphologically both genera. That structure, according to Froeschner (1960) can brings clues about the feeding habits, but without direct observations cannot be confirmed. The differences among the three species are mainly on the disposition and number of punctures on the pronotum. First record for RS in Brazil in Link (2003).
