Diagnosis. ThIs spEcIEs cAN bE dIsTINGuIshEd fROm ThE OThERs IN ThIs cOmpLEx by ThE fEmALEs wITh ThE pOsTERIOR mARGIN Of ThE SGP TApEREd TO A NARROwLy ROuNdEd ApEx ( FIG. 6F View Figure ). ThE LATERAL mARGINs ARE REfLExEd dORsAd, GIvING ThE SGP A sEmITubuLAR shApE. ALsO, ThE pOsTERIOR mARGIN Of LATEROsTERNITE VI Is ALmOsT sTRAIGhT ( FIG. 6F View Figure ). IN mALEs, ThE AGP Is cApITATE ANd wIdEsT AT ThE dIsTAL mARGIN ( FIG. 6B View Figure ). ThE psEudOpARAmEREs ARE sTRAIGhT mEsALLy (NO mEdIAL cONvExITy), wITh ThE pOsTEROmEsAL cORNER As AN INcONspIcuOus NARROwLy ROuNdEd LObE ( FIG. 6C View Figure ). ThE scuTELLum hAs A RENIfORm TO OvATE dARK bROwN mARK ON EAch sIdE Of ThE mIdLINE ( FIG. 6A View Figure ).

Discussion. ThIs spEcIEs wAs dEscRIbEd fROm A sERIEs Of spEcImENs cOLLEcTEd IN MuLEGé IN BAjA CALIfORNIA SuR, mOsT LIKELy IN ThE SANTA ROsALíA RIvER. BAsEd ON ThE uNIquE mORphOLOGy Of ThE fEmALE SGP, IT wAs cLEAR TO UsINGER ThAT ThIs wAs A dIsTINcT spEcIEs. IN ThIs wORK, UsINGER (1946) sTudIEd A TOTAL Of 20 spEcIEs, Of whIch 16 wERE dEscRIbEd As NEw spEcIEs. NOTwIThsTANdING ThE EvIdENcE, hE OvERLOOKEd ThE ImpORTANcE Of ThE SGP As A dIAGNOsTIc fEATuRE ANd dId NOTAbout NOT usE IT IN ThE dEscRIpTION Of ThE REmAINING spEcIEs. FORAbout FOR LA RIvERs (1953A), ThIs uNIquELy shApEd SGP wAs sImILAR TO ThAT Of ThE SOuTh AmERIcAN ( BOLIvIA) spEcIEs A. ochraceus  MONTANdON. HE spEcuLATEd ThAT ThIs TypE Of SGP cOuLd bE usEd TO INsERT EGGs INTO pLANT TIssuE OR dEpOsIT ThEm IN cREvIcEs, whIch wOuLd pREsumAbLy mAKE ThE EGGs LEss AccEssIbLE TO ExpLOITERs.

Variation. ThE LEfT dORsAL fLAp Of ThE mALE phALLOsOmA, whIch Is A dIAGNOsTIc chARAcTER Of ThE spEcIEs cOmpLEx, Is GENERALLy LEss dEvELOpEd ANd IN sOmE spEcImENs cAN bE INcONspIcuOus ( FIG. 6E View Figure ). ALsO, ThE dIsTAL pART Of ThE psEudOpARAmEREs cAN bE TApEREd TO A cONspIcuOus ROuNdEd ApIcAL LObE
