Abstract

Three new species are described and figured: Hemilissa birai sp. n. (Piezocerini), from Brazil; Estoloides (Estoloides) flavoscutellaris sp. n. (Desmiphorini), from Ecuador; and Esthlogena (Esthlogena) setosa sp. n. (Pteropliini), from Ecuador. Twenty-three new records in Lamiinae are provided.

Introduction

Hemilissa Pascoe, 1858 was described for Acanthoptera gummosa Perty, 1832. Martins (1976) revised the genus, described three new species and provided a key to species. Martins (2003) provided an update revision of the genus that included ten species: H. catapotia Martins, 1976 (from Brazil and French Guiana); H. cornuta Bates, 1870 (from Bolivia, Brazil, French Guiana and Peru); H. emblema Martins, 1976 (from Bolivia and Venezuela); H. fabulosa Martins, 1985 (from Venezuela); H. gummosa (Perty, 1832) (from Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina); H. opaca Martins, 1976 (from Brazil Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, and Venezuela); H. quadrispinosa Gounelle, 1913 (from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Peru); H. rufa Melzer, 1934 (from Costa Rica); H. sulcicollis Bates, 1870 (from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica?, French Guiana, Guyana, and Peru); and H. undulaticollis Zajciw, 1960 (from Brazil).

Estoloides (Estoloides) Breuning, 1940 currently encompasses 24 species distributed in North, Central and South America (Monné 2015), and a single species in the United States of America. After the revision by Breuning (1974), seven species were described: five from North America and two from the Caribbean region.

Esthlogena (Esthlogena) Thomson, 1864 currently includes 20 species. Monné (2015) does not yet include Esthlogena (Esthlogena) crassa Martins et al., 2015, from Guatemala and Mexico. The new species described herein in the first record of the genus in Ecuador.

Material and methods

Photographs were taken with a Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR camera, Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5X macro lens, controlled by Zerene Stacker AutoMontage software. Measurements were taken in ‘‘mm’’ using a micrometer ocular Hensoldt/Wetzlar - Mess 10 in the Leica MZ6 stereomicroscope, also used in the study of the specimen.

Type material

Holotype female, from BRAZIL, Rondônia: 62 km SE Ariquemes, 7-18.XI.1995, W. J. Hanson col. (CAS).

Etymology

The new species is named after Ubirajara Martins de Souza (Bira) who made the full revision of Piezocerini in 1976, and the revision of South American species in 2003.

Remarks

Hemilissa birai sp. n. differs from H. catapotia Martins, 1976 as follows: larger size (15.1 mm); antennal tubercle horn-shaped; pronotum without smooth area at central region. H. catapotia is smaller in size (from about 6 to 10 mm), the antennal tubercle is not horn-shaped, and the pronotum has a smooth area on the central region. It differs from H. cornuta Bates, 1870 by the pronotum not pubescent (with large pubescent area in H. cornuta), and by the shiny elytra (opaque in H. cornuta). Hemilissa birai sp. n. can be separated from H. opaca Martins, 1976 by the shiny elytra (opaque in H. opaca) and with a single spine at the apex (bispinose in H. opaca), and by the antennal tubercles horn-shaped (not so in H. opaca). It differs from H. quadrispinosa Gounelle, 1913 by the shiny elytra (opaque in H. quadrispinosa), by the elytral apex with a single spine (bispinose in H. quadrispinosa), by the antennal tubercle horn-shaped (not so in H. quadrispinosa), and by the pronotum not tuberculate (tuberculate in H. quadrispinosa). Hemilissa birai sp. n. differs from H. undulaticollis Zajciw, 1960 by the pronotum not longitudinally sulcate (sulcate in H. undulaticollis), and by the antennal tubercle horn-shaped (not so in H. undulaticollis).

Type material

Holotype female, from ECUADOR, Manabi: Vicinity of La Pila (200 m; 01.11198S / 080.58068W), 18-27.II.2006, F. T. Hovore and I. Swift col. (CAS). Paratypes – ECUADOR, Manabi: 50 KM S Montecristi, female, 10.III.2006, F. T. Hovore and I. Swift col. (MZSP); Vicinity of La Pila (200 m; 01.11198S / 080.58068W), 2 females, 18-27.II.2006, F. T. Hovore and I. Swift col. (LGBC).

Etymology

This species is named for the distinct dense yellowish pubescence of the scutellum.

Remarks

Estoloides (Estoloides) flavoscutellaris sp. n. is similar to E. (E.) aquilonius Linsley & Chemsak, 1984, but differs as follows (female): prothorax wider (about 1.5 times wider than long); pronotum without narrow central glabrous area; elytra proportionally narrow; scutellar pubescence yellow. In E. (E.) aquilonius (see Bezark 2015) the prothorax is narrower (about 1.3 times wider than long), the pronotum has narrow central glabrous area, the elytra are proportionally wider, and the scutellar pubescence is whitish. It differs from E. (E.) alboscutellaris Breuning, 1943 by the scutellar pubescence yellow (white in E. (E.) alboscutellaris), by the dorsal pubescence distinctly lighter (darker in E. (E.) alboscutellaris). It can be separated from E. (E.) galapagoensis (Blair, 1933) mainly by the elytral pubescence without irregular lines with pubescence contrasting with remaining surface (present in E. (E.) galapagoensis – see Bezark 2015). Estoloides (E.) flavoscutellaris sp. n. differs from E. (E.) paralboscutellaris Breuning, 1971 by the scutellar pubescence yellow (white in E. (E.) paralboscutellaris), and by the prothorax wider (more elongate in E. (E.) paralboscutellaris).

Esthlogena (Esthlogena) setosa sp. n. is similar to E. (E.) amaliae Galileo & Martins, 2001 (see photo of the holotypes at Bezark 2015), but differs as follows: body wider and distinctly more setose (narrower and less setose in E. (E.) amaliae); elytral punctures finer (distinctly coarser in E. (E.) amaliae); and elytral apex rounded (obliquely truncate in E. (E.) amaliae). It can be separated from E. (E.) chicacaoensis Galileo & Martins, 2011 (see photo of the holotypes at Bezark 2015) by the elytral punctures finer (distinctly coarser and more concentrated at base in E. (E.) chicacaoensis), and by the elytral apex rounded (obliquely truncate in E. (E.) chicacaoensis). It can be separated from E. (E.) dissimilis Galileo & Martins, 2011 and E. (E.) foveolata Aurivillius, 1920 by the central pronotal pubescence not contrasting with pubescence on lateral and basal sides (contrasting in E.
