Abstract

 Triatoma jurbergi sp. n. from the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil
(Hemiptera, Reduviidae, Triatominae) with an Updated List of Synonyms and
other Taxa - Triatoma jurbergi n. sp. is described based on nine
specimens of both sexes deposited in the Rodolfo Carcavallo Collection in
the Oswaldo Cruz Institute Entomological Collection. The new species can be
separated from the closely related Triatoma guazu Lent  Wygodzinsky,
1979 by several characters. The most important are longer anteocular
region; thin and pointed juga; the shape of the eyes without concavity in
the posterior edge; much longer second rostral segment, passing the
posterior edge of eye; the absence of a ventral longitudinal depression on
the abdomen; the general color redish, brown and orange and the male
genitalia, mainly in the vesica lightly chitinized and smaller, the
phallosome with apical projection and the pointed apex of the endosome
process.
