Diagnosis

This species of Disersus can be distinguished from its congeners by the combination of an almost entirely bare metatibia (Fig. 12); blackish-brown femora; and indistictly produced elytral apices (Fig. 9), as well as its large size (~8.5 mm) (see Spangler and Santiago-Fragoso 1987[1]).

Intraspecific variation

This species varies slightly in size and coloration, from dark brown to nearly black. Additionally, the last abdominal ventrite of the male is notched, while the last abdominal ventrite of the female is slightly sinuate, and the elytral apices of the female are more acute than those of the male (see Spangler and Santiago-Fragoso 1987[1]).

Habitat and distribution

Previously, Disersus chibcha was known only from a blacklight trap at Valle del Cauca, Colombia (Spangler and Santiago-Fragoso 1987[1]). Subsequent collections of this species, given here, were from high gradient, medium-sized streams and waterfalls throughout the Mérida Andes in Venezuela (Fig. 1).

Associated species

No other laraine species were collected with Disersus chibcha.
