Abstract

The new species, Stator huautlae, is described. It was reared from nutlets of its host plant Salvia sessei Bentham (Lamiaceae), from Morelos, Mexico. This is the first record for the genus Stator and for a bruchid from the New World feeding in the fruits of this family. The relationships of S. huautlae to other species groups of Stator are discussed. Figures of the dorsal and lateral surfaces, the male genitalia, and eggs and exit holes of S. huautlae in the nutlets of S. sessei are included.
