Limnogonus hyalinus (Fabricius, 1803)

New record. Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Camarón Stream (09°32′32″ N, 075°24′33″ W), Wendy Molina-J., 25.III.2017 (WMJ 076).

Identification. Males of L. hyalinus were separated from those of L. aduncus based on the shape of abdominal segment VIII. Both species display a posteroventral projection, however, the projection is much longer in the former, extending at least to the same level of the posterodorsal margin of the same segment. Females of L. hyalinus can be confused with those of L. aduncus at first sight but could be distinguished from these based on the last abdominal laterotergite, which is truncate at apex, not projected beyond the corresponding mediotergite ( Nieser 1970).

Distribution in the Colombian Caribbean region. Bolívar ( Morales-Castaño and Castro-Vargas 2010), Sucre (this work).
