Dissomphalus unitus Azevedo, 1999 

( Fig 190–194View FIGURES 184 – 197)

Dissomphalus unitus Azevedo, 1999a: 350  –351, 380–381, 390; (♂, holotype from Costa Rica, CNCI, figs 112–116, 193–194); Azevedo, 2003: 62.

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus trapezoidal. Tergal process with shallow and large depression with pair of joined tuft of long setae backward. Hypopygium with posterior margin with three small concavities. Genitalia: paramere with apex arched inward and truncate; aedeagal ventral ramus slightly longer than aedeagal dorsal body narrow, diverging dorsally; inner margin sinuous and parallel; outer margin with broad median concavity; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; outer lobe laminar with rounded apex; inner lobe stout densely setose. Apodeme extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Mexico (Chiapas, Vera Cruz), Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama ( Azevedo 1999a) and here more specimens are added. Some variations are worth to mention: metasoma light castaneous; median clypeal tooth angulate; aedeagal ventral ramus as longer as aedeagal dorsal body; volsella with rounded expansion medially and some specimens without it.
