CommentSynonymy: Phymaturus vociferator has previously been confused with Phymaturus flagellifer (= P. palluma). Depending on author, Phymaturus dorsimaculatus is considered as a synonym of Phymaturus vociferator (Pincheira-Donoso et al. 2008) or as valid species. Troncoso-Palacios & Lobo (2012) argue that P. dorsimaculatus is a valid species, given that the second chinshields are separated, a characteristic that together with the vocalization (according to Pincheira-Donoso, 2004) and the scapular black bars fused in the male, allow to differentiate it from P. vociferator.

Group: palluma group (fide LOBO et al. 2010).

Distribution: for a map of the vociferator group see MORANDA et al. 2013. Not listed for Argentina by Avila et al. 2013, Zootaxa 3616 (3): 201–238.

Diet: herbivorous. 
EtymologyEtymology (dorsimaculatus): The epithet refers to the conspicuous pattern of black spots over the neck, shoulders, and dorsum of the trunk of this new species. It is a compound name (originated from two latin words dorsum that means back and macula that means spot, mark).
