Holotype, male (Fig. 8a). Length 2.39 mm. Color of antennae and legs ferruginous; remainder black. Body subovate; in profile dorsally convex, with weak constriction between pronotum and elytron. Rostrum dorsally with median and pair of submedian ridges; intervening furrows with sparse rows of suberect setae; epistome posteriorly with transverse, angulate ridge. Pronotum with weak subapical constriction; densely punctate disk forming broad ridge with impunctate median line; interspaces between punctures subglabrous, subequal to or smaller than punctures´ diameter. Elytra with striae marked by rows of small punctures; basal margin bordered by transverse row of slightly deeper punctures; near humerus striae 7–9 with large, coarse punctures; sutural interval with additional row, other intervals subglabrous, with few interspersed punctures. Femora with anteroventral ridges crenate, ending with acute tooth; anterior surface coarsely punctate, each puncture with subrecumbent yellowish seta. Metafemur with dorsoposterior edge denticulate; subapically with stridulatory patch. Abdominal ventrite 1 and anterior portion of ventrite 2 cavernous, subglabrous; ventrite 2 posteriorly forming rim; ventrite 5 broadly concave, sparsely punctate. Penis (Fig. 8b) with sides of body rounded to medially pointed apex; apodemes 2.0 × as long as body of penis; transfer apparatus with complex sclerites; ductus ejaculatorius with indistinct bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 2.13–2.39 mm. Female rostrum dorsally punctate-rugose, with median costa; epistome indistinct. Female abdominal ventrite 5 flat.

N-Sulawesi Prov. (Lake Moat, Mt Bonde). Elevation: 910–1020 m.
On foliage and in leaf litter in montane forests.
This epithet is a combination of the Latin nouns arma (weapon) and pes (foot, leg). It is treated as a noun in apposition.
Trigonopterus armipes Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 397”. Populations from Lake Moat and Mt Bonde exhibit 10.7–11.1% p-distance in cox1 sequences, but no significant morphological differences could be found.
