Dissomphalus piscicercus Azevedo, 2001: 174  , 196–197 (♂, holotype from Panama, PMAEAbout PMAE, figs 148–154). 

Diagnosis. Mandible bidentate. Clypeus tridentate. Tergal process with pair of antero-lateral depressions, ovoid, deep, large with small pit covered by tuft of long seate. Hypopygium with posterior margin concave. Genitalia: paramere with apex oblique and slightly concave; aedeagal ventral ramus as long as aedeagal dorsal body, laminar, surface vertical, parallel; apex with two large apical teeth; aedeagal dorsal body with three pairs of apical lobes; outer pair with apex converging, inner margin serrated, ventral margin with three long and narrow teeth; inner pairs stout, membranous and setose; dorsal pair short and the ventral as long as aedeagal dorsal body; basal process of aedeagal dorsal body with pair of short teeth outward and median long tooth. Apodeme extending beyond genital ring.

Remarks. This species is known only to Panama ( Azevedo 2001) and now more specimens are added. In this series the specimens are quite similar to those previously studied, without any variation that worths to mention.
