- Amblycerus viridans Ribeiro-Costa, 1998: 633 (original description, holotype, type locality: Brazil, Mato Grosso). Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 634, Figs 11–15. Detailed description and information of type material are in Ribeiro-Costa (1998).
Brazil (Mato Grosso).
Amblycerus viridans differs from all other species in the group by the structure of the internal sac of male genitalia, which includes a pair of sclerites formed by dense denticles (Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 634, Fig. 14: EPL) (character absent in Amblycerus virescens, Amblycerus viridis, Amblycerus virens andAmblycerus medialis). This species is similar to Amblycerus viridis because they both have a wishbone sclerite that is shorter than the blades; in addition both species also share the presence of a pair of slender denticulate sclerites on median region (Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 634, Fig. 14: EPC). Additional information on external morphological similarities is also presented in the section dedicated to Amblycerus virescens.
