Dissomphalus ubracus Brito & Azevedo, 2017: 65  (♂, holotype from Panama). 

Diagnosis. Male. Body castaneous. Mandible with three distal teeth. Median clypeal lobe ill defined, with one angulate tooth; median clypeal carina high in profile, incomplete apically, straight in profile or nearly so. Frons weakly coriaceous and punctures small. Vertex crest weakly concave. Pronotal disc weakly coriaceous; anterior margin ecarinate. Metasomal tergite II with tergal process lateral, with deeply excavated, subcircular and large depression covered by tergite, without tubercle, pit absent. Posterior hypopygeal margin strongly concave. Genitalia: paramere with dorsal margin wide basally; apical margin truncate. Aedeagal ventral ramus shorter than dorsal body, wide, abruptly narrowing apicad; cross section laminar; surface horizontal; inner margin straight; outer margin slightly sinuous; apex short, simple, slightly curved outward; additional inner ramus absent; basal stub absent. Aedeagal dorsal body with two pairs of apical lobes; outer lobe short, horizontal and wide, with apical margin abruptly acute and dorsad; inner pair stout, membranous and setose. Apodeme not extending beyond genital ring. Female unknown.

Variations. The main variations found in this series are the metasomal tergal process with an invagination that varies from short to long.

Remarks. This species was previously known from Panama ( Brito & Azevedo 2017). Now it is recorded for the first time from South America ( Brazil: Ceará and Maranhão).
