Type data: Lectotype male (CMNH).

Examined.

Type locality: Santarém , Brazil. 

Comments and Diagnosis. Stenosigma testaceum  is morphologically similar to S. imitans  , but clypeal features distinguish these two species. While specimens of S. imitans  have a short clypeus without evident carinae ( Fig. 10 View Figure ), specimens of S. testaceum  present a longer clypeus with developed teeth with apical carinae ( Fig. 14 View Figure ). In addition to the clypeus condition, S. testaceum  is easily recognized by its predominantly yellowish body color ( Fig. 7 View Figure ); presence of a developed lamella in the pronotal carina ( Fig. 17 View Figure ); and the humeral region scarcely developed, without an evident projection ( Fig. 24 View Figure ).
