Dissomphalus vallensis Evans, 1979 

( Figs 197–199View FIGURES 184 – 197View FIGURES 198 – 210)

Dissomphlaus vallensis Evans, 1979: 277  , 281 (♂ holotype from USNM); Gordh & Móczár, 1990: 226; Azevedo, 1999a: 327 – 328, 162–163.

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus wih median lobe ill-defined. Tergal process median with large, elliptical and deep depression with pair of tubercles with tuft of setae directed each other. Hypopygium with posterior margin concave. Genitalia: paramere with apex truncate and oblique; aedeagal ventral ramus as long as aedeagal dorsal body; surface smooth; inner margin straight; outer margin convex; apical half narrow and divergent; aedeagal dorsal body with apical half arched downward; ventral side with median fold; dorsal margin of apical half arched outward and pair of very small lobes upward in base of aedeagal dorsal body. Apodeme not extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known from Colombia ( Azevedo 1999a) and is recorded for the first time from Panama. Some variations are worth to mention: median clypeal tooth angulate; median clypeal carina conspicuous and complete; vertex crest straight; anterior margin of pronotal disc coarse; aedeagal ventral ramus shorter than aedeagal dorsal body; median region of aedeagal dorsal body wide, apical portion elongated and narrow, outer margin sinuous; genital ring bifurcated distally in ventral view.
