( Figs. 20–22View 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.
