Dissomphalus curvifoveatus Azevedo, 1999 

( Fig 159–164View FIGURES 148 – 162View FIGURES 163 – 173)

Dissomphalus curvifoveatus Azevedo, 1999a: 328  –329, 368, 386–387 (♂, holotype from Brazil, Amazonas, INPA, figs: 40–42, 165); Azevedo, 2003: 60.

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus subtrapezoidal. Tergal process median with wide, deep and triangular depression, with very large pit densely covered with setae. Hypopygium with posterior margin with very short invagination. Genitalia: paramere bidigitiform with median longitudinal invagination very deep; volsella with digitus very long 0.5X the length of paramere; aedeagal dorsal ramus longer than aedeagal dorsal body, surfaces vertical; apex narrow and smooth; inner margin excavated medially and straight basally; outer margin convex; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; ventral pair narrow, lanceolate with apex sharpened; dorsal pair narrowing to apex divergent, with two teeth. Apodeme not extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador and Brazil (Acre, Amazônia, Pará, Rondônia and Paraná) ( Azevedo 1999a) and here more specimens are added. Some variations are worth to mention: median clypeal tooth angulate; anterior margin of pronotal disc coarse; one specimen with depressions of tergal process with few setae and tergal process more distant from each other.
