Diagnosis

Disersus dasycolus is unique among the species of Disersus and can be distinguished from all other species by the fuzzy protibiae of the male (Fig. 17). Males have a patch of dense, long, curly setae on the distal third of the ventral side of the protibia that is found in no other species of Disersus (Fig. 17) (See Spangler and Santiago-Fragoso 1987[1]).

Intraspecific variation

This species varies slightly in color and size, from a medium to dark brown. Females do not possess the patch of setae apicoventrally on the protibiae, and instead bear setae that resemble those of the other legs.

Habitat and distribution

Previously, this species was only known from a single specimen collected at blacklight trap in Pastaza Province, Ecuador. Somewhat surprisingly, this species is quite common in streams in the Mérida Andes of Venezuela above 1000m elevation, and seems to prefer stream margins (Fig. 2).

Associated species

A single species of Hexanchorus, Hexanchorus flintorum sp. n. was collected at the same localities as Disersus dasycolus. Disersus spp. are often collected in conjunction with Hexanchorus spp. as they seem to prefer the same rocky cascades as habitat. Other aquatic beetles collected at the same localities include: Andogyrus spp. (Gyrinidae).
