Dissomphalus rufipalpis Kieffer, 1910b: 44  –45, 1914b: 496, 500, Evans, 1962: 69, 74–75, 1964: 46, Gordh & Móczár, 1990: 225, Azevedo, 1999c: 944 –945; Azevedo, 2003: 28, Redighieri & Azevedo, 2006: 311. Dissomphalus obliquos Evans, 1979: 277  , 278, 279–280; Gordh & Móczár, 1990: 224, Azevedo, 1999c: 9944 (designation of synonymy).

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus trapezoidal. Tergal process with elliptical and and inclined depressions and linear and oblique tuft of small setae. Hypopygium with posterior margin nearly straight. Genitalia: paramere with dorsal margin developed with base projected downward and small tooth; aedeagal ventral ramus as long as aedeagal dorsal body, laminar; surfaces vertical; basal half wide, narrowing at sinuous apex; aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; outer pair laminar; surface vertical and setose; inner pair slightly inclined upward with setose surface. Apodeme extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known to Mexico (Vera Cruz, Chiapas), Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador ( Azevedo 1999b) and here more specimens are added. In this series the specimens are quite similar to those previously studied, without any variation that worths to mention.
