Dissomphalus pronus Alencar & Azevedo, 2006 

Dissomphalus pronus Alencar & Azevedo, 2006: 19  –20 (♂, holotype from Costa Rica, PMAEAbout PMAE, figs 24–27). 

Diagnosis. Mandible tridentate. Clypeus trapezoidal. Tergal process with pair of circular, large and deep lateral depressions with dense tuft of convergent setae directed backward. Hypopygium with posterior margin convex. Genitalia: paramere wide; dorsal margin straight and ventral margin concave; aedeagal ventral ramus shorter than aedeagal dorsal body, laminar; surface horizontal and angulate ventrally; basal half long and wide; inner margin sinuous; apical half narrowing to apex and converging mesad; apex folded laterad; aedeagal dorsal body wide; surface vertical; apical part with concavity mesad, apex with two arms; crown-process small. Apodeme not extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Costa Rica ( Alencar & Azevedo 2006) and now it is recorded for the first time from Panama. Some variations are worth to mention: head, mesosoma and metasoma castaneous; clypeal carina not developed in profile; anterior margin of pronotal disc carinate and followed by foveae; apex of aedeagal ventral ramus folded.
