Buenoa platycnemis (Fieber, 1851)

New records. Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Bobo Stream, station 4 (09°33′49″ N, 075°24′49″ W), Wendy Molina- J., 11.IV.2017 (WMJ 080). Colombia: Sucre: Toluviejo: Pechilín Stream, station 1 (09°26′11″ N, 075°26′21″ W), Wendy Molina-J., 25.II.2017 (WMJ 068).

Identification. Species of Buenoa are identified based mainly on features of the males, such as the shape of the rostral prong and the stridulatory structures of foreleg. Buenoa platycnemis has a wide distribution and variation of color, which is therefore not useful for its determination. Our material was identified based on the male rostral prong originating laterally on the distal region of the third rostral segment, protruding basally, and distinctly longer than this segment; the tricarinate pronotum; and the fore femur with 11 to 14 stridulatory ridges ( Barbosa and Nessimian 2013).
