Dissomphalus pilus Alencar & Azevedo, 2008 

Dissomphalus pilus Alencar & Azevedo, 2008  : 0 4, 0 9, 20–22 (♂, holotype from Trinidad & Tobago, CNCI, figs 71–77).

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus trapezoidal. Tergal process with pair of minute tubercle with small pit on top, and few setae directed backward. Hypopygium with posterior margin concave. Genitalia: paramere very wide and apex rounded; aedeagal ventral ramus shorter than aedeagal dorsal body, laminar; surface horizontal; inner margin straight outer margin convex; filament inserted subapically; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; outer pair laminar; surface vertical and wide; apex straight; inner pair irregular in lateral view, membranous, setose and granulate in ventral view; basal bar triangular; conector with lateral expansion concave. Apodeme extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Trinidad and Tobago ( Alencar & Azevedo 2008). Now it is recorded for the first time from Panama. Some variations are worth to mention: apical lobes of aedeagal dorsal body very projected forward and apical margin truncate.
