Stenosigma humerale GiOrdani SOika, 1990  : 148 (in the key); 155.

Stenosigma humerale  ; Hermes & Ferreira, 2016: 123 –126.

Type data: Holotype female (MSVE). Examined.

Type locality: Mapiri , Bolivia. 

Comments and Diagnosis. S. humerale  was described by Giordani Soika (1990) and is quite different from previously recognized species in the genus ( S. allegrum  , S. testaceum  and S. imitans  ). The sparse punctures of the pronotum and mesepisternum ( Figs. 18View FIGURES 13–18. 13, 14, 21View FIGURES 19–24. 19); the lateral margins of T1 not completely fused ventrally ( Fig. 30View FIGURES 25–30. 25–27); and the flat, little developed pre-apical fossa of T1 ( Fig. 31View FIGURES 31–35. 31, 32) are a set of distinctive features of this species ( Hermes & Ferreira, 2016, p. 124). In addition, this species has large body size and melanic coloration ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1–6) that resembles species of Pachymenes ( Hermes & Ferreira, 2016)  . For a listing of other diagnostic features for the species see Hermes and Ferreira (2016, p. 124).
