Abstract: The genus Stenometapodus Breddin, 1903 (Coreidae: Coreinae: Acanthocephalini) is
redescribed and one new species, Stenometapodus aurantiacus sp. nov., is
described from Brazil. The new species is distinguished by a combination of
color patterns and morphological characters, such as the shape of pronotum.
A key to the known species of Stenometapodus is included. A new genus,
Zygometapodus gen. nov., is proposed for Stenometapodus castaneus Blöte,
1938. New distribution records for Zygometapodus castaneus (Blöte, 1938) comb.
nov. from Bolivia and Peru are provided. Dorsal photos of each species of
Stenometapodus and Zygometapodus are also provided.
