18 Identification. The main features used to identify species of Martarega are found in wings of brachypterous specimens. Our male individuals were identified as M. hondurensis based on the narrow median longitudinal hyaline stripe on the hemelytra, hyaline stripe of the hemelytral process continuous ( Fig. 17), and proximal third of fore femur with a group of ensiform setae. On the females, the longitudinal stripe of the hemelytra is wide, narrowing on the posterior two-thirds of its length and extending along the costal margin, and the stripe of the hemelytral process is discontinued by an opaque area for one-fourth of its length ( Fig. 18) ( Barbosa 2014).
