Plateros inhumeralis ( Pic, 1938)  comb. et stat. nov.

Calleros wagneri  var. inhumeralis Pic, 1938: 157  .

Type material. Holotype: male, BRAZIL “ America, Brasilia, coll.Rich.Hicker” without other data ( MNHNAbout MNHN). Other material. BRAZIL: “Res. Biológica Serra do Japi, Jundiaí-SP, Nascimento E.A.; Polegatto C.M. col, 26.iii. 2007 ” (1 male, 1 female, DZUPAbout DZUP).

Diagnosis: P. inhumeralis  differs from P. wagneri Pic, 1923  by the shape of genitalia and by presenting humeral portions dark brown.

Redescription: Body with ventral surface dark brown. Head dark brown, eyes large, interocular distance as long as eye diameter in male, 1.4 x of eye diameter in female. Antennae subserrate, antennomere 4 as long as 5, 1.5 x longer that antennomere 3. Mandibles stout, labial palpi short, maxillary palpi elongate, palpomere 4 about 1.4 x longer than palpomere 2 and 2 x longer than palpomere 3. Pronotum subpentagonal, about 1.2 x wider than long medially, widest at basal margin with posterior angles obliquely projected backwards, posterior margin bisinuate, discrete median longitudinal carina present at apical 1 / 6, longitudinal median line channeled at basal half. Pronotum dark brown with lateral sides yellow. Scutellum dark brown with shallow emargination distally. Elytra dark brown, with yellow transverse band in ⅔, pubescent, each elytron with 9 costae, primary costae stronger, regular reticulate cells subsquare. Prosternum trapezoidal, mesosternum trapezoidal. Legs compressed, dark brown, femur as long as tibia, 3 x longer than trochanter. Male abdominal sternum 8 with rounded emargination distally, pointed proximally. Male genitalia with phallus elongate, slightly wider in basal 1 / 5 in lateral and ventral views, bent dorsally at apical ¼ and curved apically in lateral view, subtly bent to right in ventral view ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 1 – 12), phallobase subrectangular in ventral view. Female genitalia with ovaloid coxites, presenting incomplete oblique fissure at proximal ½. Valvifers divergent, thin and darker than coxites, apically compressed. Styli half of coxites length, proctiger quite elliptical ( Fig. 9View FIGURE 1 – 12). Body length: 9–10.5 mm, humeral width: 2–2.5 mm.

Distribution: Brazil.

Remark: Examination of the holotype of Calleros wagneri  var. inhumeralis Pic, 1938  showed that the specimen is a member of the genus Plateros  representing a separate species from Plateros wagneri Pic, 1923  known to occur in Argentina. Therefore, Calleros wagneri  var. inhumeralis Pic, 1938  is transferred to the genus Plateros  and Plateros inhumeralis ( Pic, 1938)  comb. et stat. n. is proposed. The specimens collected by the first author will be deposited in DZUPAbout DZUP.
