papei Buhl, 2011, in Buhl's (20116) key, but that species has more slender antennae, a longer and thinner scutellar
spine, and longer marginal cilia of wings.
Similar patterns of scutellar
development were observed in the field study of Wright's skullcap.
It is differentiated from the rest of South American species by this feature, by presenting the scutellar
disc smooth and flat, and the spine extremely short (Fig.
1], the later producing the highest numbers of globular, early, and late scutellar
A second, analogous example concerns changes in the number of scutellar
bristles caused by the mutant scute of Drosophila melanogaster (Rendel 1979).
They were associated by the pigmentation of thorax and legs and by the number of scutellar

Among the eight genera known in the tribe Hoplinini, the new genus Cuscohoplininus resembles Parajalysus in general aspect and size, but can be easily distinguished by the following characters: Parajalysus is characterized by the four large, erect pronotal spines, one centered on the anterior lobe, and on the posterior lobe, one at each humeral angle and one at the base of the meson; whereas, Cuscohoplininus has a single spine on the anterior pronotal lobe, an elongate scutellar
spine (a tubercle is present in Parajalysus), and lacks a process on the caudal edge of the male genitalia capsule.
