TENEBROIDES (PARALLELODERA)   SP. G038

( FIG. 7A–C; SUPPORTING INFORMATION, FIG. S5)

M a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: O n e s p e c i m e n (G 0 3 8): ‘ Panama: Veraguas Prov. / 2 km N El Espino nr. Santiago / 8°13.108N 80°57.847W, 75 m / 06Jun2009 GoogleMaps   N.

Lord, K. Miller/E. Nearns, peeling bark’ (UNMM). Two specimens ‘ Colombia, Mamatoco, 1912, I.’ (MMBC).

Diagnosis: Black species with fine punctures in head and pronotum, without pubescence. Frons with medial longitudinal depression and distinct furrow in centre reaching to anterior margin of head. Ctenidium absent. Antenna 11-segmented, club three-segmented, asymmetric. Eye flat, not exceeding contour of head; finely facetted. Pronotum subparallel-sided, with small posterior angles; elytron with denticle at humerus; elytral rim meets fifth stria from suture; elytron with fine transverse wrinkles. Tarsal formula 4-4-4. Tibiae with two spines at apex, one of them large, hooked in protibia; all tibiae with three to five denticles along the outer margin. Elytron subparallel, weakly widened backwards, widest at apical third; wings developed. Body size: 7.5–8.5 mm.

Distribution: Colombia, Panama.

Remarks: Two specimens from Colombia agree in all details with the voucher specimen G038 from Panama, which was used in the analysis by Gimmel et al. (2019) and in the present analysis. The species is denoted as ‘ Tenebroides sp.   Panama’ in tree diagrams. A formal description of the species is impossible without a systematic revision of Tenebroides   south of USA (see Barron, 1971).
