Diagnosis

Omorgus badeni   is similar in appearance to O. borrei   . It can be distinguished from the latter by the presence of round shiny black tubercles on the odd-numbered elytral costae. Omorgus borrei   have the odd-numbered costae marked by distinct flat lustrous areas. For a more detailed treatment of O. badeni   , see Scholtz (1990).

Geographic distribution

In Brazil, Omorgus badeni   occurs in the BA, CE, PE and RN states (Caatinga biome) ( Figure 9 View Figure 9 ).
