#### Abstract

Let $G$ be a connected reductive group over a $p$-adic field $F$ of characteristic $0$ and let $M$ be an $F$-Levi subgroup of $G$. Given a discrete series representation $\sigma$ of $M(F)$, we prove that there exists a locally constant and compactly supported function on M(F), which generalizes a pseudo-coefficient of $\sigma$. This function satisfies similar properties to the pseudo-coefficient, and its lifting to $G(F)$ is applied to the Plancherel formula.
