Platyvelia brachialis (Stål, 1860)

New records. Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Bobo Stream, station 3 (09°33′48″ N, 075°24′39″ W), Wendy Molina- J., 18.III.2017 (WMJ 074). Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Bobo Stream, station 4 (09°33′49″ N, 075°24′49″ W), Wendy Molina-J., 28.II.2015 (WMJ 028). Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Bobo Stream, station 6 (09°33′46″ N, 075°24′51″ W), Claudia Moreno-R., 28.II.2015 (CMR 079).

Identification. Our specimens of P. brachialis were identified based on the following combination of char- acters: posterior margin of male abdominal sternite VI without projections; pronotum not shortened posteriorly, with anterior margin narrower than head width through eyes, and anterolateral angles not projected; and jugum, apex of pleurite VII, and base of VIII with several black denticles. Some of these features are not readily available from the literature but will be published in a forthcoming revision of the genus by FFFM.
