Dissomphalus galeatus Alencar & Azevedo, 2006: 15 View Cited Treatment   –16 (♂, holotype from Costa Rica, CNCI, figs 20–21).

Diagnosis. Mandible tridentate. Clypeus trapezoidal, median carina complete and strongly developed in profile. Tergal process with pair of circular, large and deep lateral depressions with dense tuft of convergent setae directed backward. Hypopygium with posterior margin straight. 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 wide; inner margin with strong concavity before apex; outer margin convex above; aedeagal dorsal body laminar, surface vertical; base wide, narrowing to rounded apex; ventral margin with long projection directed to apical part of aedeagal ventral ramus; dorsal margin sinuous and serrate; crown-process small. Apodeme not extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Costa Rica and Brazil (Rondônia), and now it is recorded for the first time from Panama. Some variations are worth to mention: median clypeal tooth shorter and angulate; median carina of clypeus complete apically; depression of tergal process very shallow.
