Stalolidia setacea View in CoL , sp. nov.

( Plate 2F View PLATE 2 , Figs. 109–116 View FIGURES 109–116 )

Length. Male 9.00–9.50 mm., female unknown.

External morphology. Large, robust species. General color dark brown and yellow; forewings dark brown with 2 broken, yellowish translucent, transverse bands, one anteriorly, one medially, veins with small, linear yellow spots; mesonotum dark brown with yellow patches; pronotum dark brown with small yellow spots on surface; crown yellow; eyes translucent ( Plate 2F View PLATE 2 ); face dark brown, small yellow spots and markings on clypeus. Head narrower than pronotum, anterior margin broadly rounded; crown much broader than width of eyes, produced anteriorly less than ¼ of entire median length, lateral margins nearly parallel, disk flat; eyes large, elongate ovoid; pronotum longer than median length of crown, surface bullated; mesonotum large, nearly twice as long as pronotum; forewings long, broad, 3 anteapical cells present, outer one closed; clypeus long, broad, lateral margin nearly parallel, median longitudinal carina very thin; clypellus short, less than 1/3 as long as clypeus, lateral margins broadly convex in basal 2/3, inflated medially in basal ½.

Male genitalia. Pygofer in lateral view large, subquadrate, long setae on caudodorsal margin, caudoventral process short ( Fig. 109 View FIGURES 109–116 ); subgenital plate long, narrow, outer lateral margin, setaceous in apical ¼ ( Fig. 110 View FIGURES 109–116 ); style large, robust, longer than aedeagus, with small lobe medially on each side of apophysis ( Figs. 111, 112 View FIGURES 109–116 ); aedeagus long, tubular, slightly tapered apically, numerous, short to long setae on shaft, gonopore cryptic; ( Figs. 113, 114 View FIGURES 109–116 ); connective stout, broadly Y-shaped, stem short, bulbous apically, membrane absent ( Fig. 115 View FIGURES 109–116 ); dorsal connective short, nearly tubular ( Figs. 116 View FIGURES 109–116 ).

Material examined. Holotype male. COLOMBIA: Amazonas , PNN, Amacayacu, San Martin, 3º23’S – 70º6’W, 150 m., Malaise, 9/24/00–10/2/00, B. Amado Leg., ( IAHC) GoogleMaps . Paratypes. 1 male, same data as holotype except 7/30/00–8/8/00, M. 836 ( IAHC) GoogleMaps ; 1 male 8/16/99–8/24/00, M. 842 ( UK) ; 1 male, 7/2/00–7/7/00, M. 699 HB); 1 male 1/02/01–1/15/01, M. 1319 ( IAHC) ; 2 males, PNN, Amacayacu Matamata 3º41’S – 70º15’W, 150 m GoogleMaps ., 9/ 11/200–9/11/200, M. 3549 ( MLBM).

Etymology. The name is descriptive for the setaceous aedeagus and single, long seta on the pygofer.

Remarks. This species is nearest to S. curta ( Figs. 31–32 View FIGURES 25–32 , Nielson, 1992) and can be separated by the configuration of the style ( Figs. 111, 112 View FIGURES 109–116 ) and the broad caudoventral pygofer process ( Fig. 110 View FIGURES 109–116 ).
