AbstractThe E. cervus-group of Edessa Fabricius, 1803 (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae: Edessinae) from South and Central America, is proposed to include the Edessa species with the apices of the long cylindrical humeral angles bifurcated. Three new and three described species are included: Edessa cervus (Fabricius, 1787), Edessa cerastes Breddin, 1905, Edessa elaphus Breddin, 1905, Edessa burmeisteri spec. nov., Edessa peruviana spec. nov., Edessa rondoniensis spec. nov.; their external genital characters and the metasternum of E. burmeisteri are illustrated and their distribution is given. The males of Edessa cerastes Breddin, 1905, and Edessa elaphus Breddin, 1905, which were unknown until now, are described.
