Martarega hungerfordi Truxal, 1949: 12   [ Guyana].

Martarega hungerfordi: Fittkau 1977: 16   [ Brazil].

Martarega hungerfordi: Heckman 2011: 489   [South America].

No specimens were collected in the regions sampled. Nieser (1970, 1975) reports that M. hungerfordi   was taken from the States of Amazonas and Pará (Figure 14B). These records refer to the species M. nieseri   sp. nov. otherwise (Nico Nieser in litt.), with which M. hungerfordi   may be confused. Martarega hungerfordi   was recorded by Fittkau (1977) from the Amazon Region, but the record could not be verified, because the author provided only a list of species.

Martarega hungerfordi   may be mistakenly keyed out to M. oriximinaensis   in Barbosa et al. (2010) key to Martarega species   occurring in political northern Brazil. This is because its hind trochanters have a sharp concavity at its distal end ( Figure 7B View Figures 5–8 ) and its median stripe does not bifurcate at apex of hemelytra ( Figure 7A View Figures 5–8 ).
