Leucophenga sujuanae sp. nov.

( Figs 3 View FIGURE 3 G, 3 H, 3 I, 4 C, 7)

Diagnosis. This species is similar to L. abbreviata in the patterns of abdominal tergites ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 C), but can be differentiated from it by having the black bands of abdominal second and third tergites discontinuous on posterior margins at least, sometimes also occur on fourth and fifth tergites ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 C), the pleura brownish yellow above, yellow below, sometimes with a small brown patch below base of wing ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 J), the aedeagus acute apically ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 C).

Description. Mesonotum mostly yellow ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 H). Scutellum mostly yellow, slightly brownish laterally, pale at tip ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 H). Halter mostly white ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 I). Male terminalia: Epandrium with sparse pubescence and ca. 9 setae near posterodorsal to ventral margins per side; apodeme slightly developed ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 A). Hypandrium with 1 long sensilla and ca. 4 sensilla subbasolaterally ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 B). Paramere slender, with a few minute sensilla distally ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 B).
