Stenosigma quechua Hermes & Ferreira, 2016 

( Figs. 6 View Figure , 9 View Figure , 32 View Figure )

Stenosigma quechua Hermes & Ferreira, 2016: 124  –126.

Type data: Holotype female (MSVE). Examined.

Type locality: Dos de Mayo , Peru. 

Comments and Diagnosis. This species is closely related to S. humerale  . Both are relatively large compared to other species of Stenosigma  . In addition, they present the integument with sparser punctation, rarely with concentrated and abundant punctures. In the pronotum and mesepisternum the punctures are sparse and deep.

Two specimens of S. quechua  were mistakenly included in the type series of S. humerale  by Giordani Soika as paratypes. The mistake was detected by Hermes and Ferreira (2016), and the main differences between S. humerale  and S. quechua  were detailed by these authors ( Hermes & Ferreira, 2016, p. 125). Stenosigma humerale  and S. quechua  are easily distinguished by having the pre-apical fossa flattened and poorly developed in the former ( Fig. 31 View Figure ), and slit-shaped in the latter ( Fig. 32 View Figure ).
