Dissomphalus guttus Azevedo, 2003: 48  –50 (♂, holotype from Costa Rica, CNCIAbout CNCI, figs 91–93). 

Diagnosis. Mandible tridentate. Clypeus subtrapezoidal. Tergal process with pair of droped-shaped pits with outer rim, sharpened anteriorly and rounded posteriorly, with tuft of setae backward and very shallow depression.

Hypopygium with posterior margin straight. Genitalia: paramere wide, apex rounded; aedeagal ventral ramus shorter than aedeagal dorsal body; apical half narrow and strongly curved downward; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; outer pair laminar; surface vertical, wide with rounded apex in lateral view; apex tridentate, directed downward; ventral margin with anterior elongate basal tooth; inner pair membranous, stout and setose; base of aedeagus strongly dilated upward. Apodeme extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Costa Rica and Panama ( Azevedo 2003) and here more specimens are added. Some variations are worth to mention: median clypeal tooth angulate; median clypeal carina incomplete apically; anterior margin of pronotal disc coarse.
