Abstract

Leptoglossus katiae Schaefer and Packauskas, n. sp., is described from northeastern Brazil. It belongs in the L. cinctus species group and is most similar to Leptoglossus cinctus (Herrich-Schaeffer), L. crassicornis (Dallas), and L. fasciatus (Westwood). It can be distinguished from these species, and from most other Leptoglossus species, by its small size (10.5–12.3 mm) and long rostrum (reaching onto the sixth abdominal sternum), as well as by other characters. Sexual dimorphism of the hind tibia and femur is discussed briefly.
