Remark: The specimen has a color pattern different from the four described species of the genus ( Maldonado Capriles, 1990), being entirely reddish dorsally except a darkish macula at the apical part of hemelytra, black antennal segment I and II, and infuscate legs. Ventrally, the abdomen shows the alternate red-yellow pattern typical for members of the genus.
