( Figs. 20–22 View FIGURES 20 – 22 )

Originally placed in subgenus Posidippus   ( Steirodon (Posidippum) emsleyi   ). But when reviewing photos of this species ( Eades et al., 2016) and recently published data on the Tettigoniidae   types of Piracicaba collection ( Chamorro & Braun, 2010), where the type series its deposited, it is concluded that this species belongs to the subgenus Frontinus   , lacking thorns on the side edges of the pronotal disc.
