Diagnosis 
CommentDistribution: erroneously reported by Smith & Laufe 1945 from “Guanajuato: Huasteca Potosina” which is actually not in Guanajuato but in San Luis Potosí and neighboring states (V. Mata-Silva, pers. comm. 26 March 2018). 
EtymologyThe specific epithet is derived from the Latin words serratus, meaning "toothed like a saw," in reference to the serrated posterior edge of the head casque (Lemos-Espinal & Dixon 2013).
