Diagnosis

Omorgus persuberosus   is similar in appearance to O. suberosus   and O. triestinae   , but is usually larger than the latter two species. In addition, O. persuberosus   have a distinct glabrous area on the inner ventral surface of the mesotibiae, which is either reduced or absent in the other two species ( Figures 5d View Figure 5 and 6d View Figure 6 ).

Geographic distribution

Omorgus persuberosus   is widespread across South America ( Vaurie 1955, 1962; Scholtz 1990; Smith 2017). In Brazil is has been recorded across the Amazonia (AC, PA), Cerrado (MG, DF, TO, MS, SP, GO), Caatinga (PI), Atlantic Forest (PB, SP, RJ, MG, ES, PR, SC, RS) and Pampa (RS) biomes ( Figure 10 View Figure 10 ).
