Species. T. ryckmani Zeledón and Ponce 

Etymology. Considering that this species does not correspond to any of the species described so far, especially in this area (1), we have decided to describe it as a new species and dedicate it to Dr. Raymond E. Ryckman, because of his valuable contributions towards better knowledge of this group of insects ( Zeledón & Ponce 1972: 275).

Original citation. “Por considerar que la especie no corresponde a ninguna de las hasta ahora descritas, especialmente en el área (1) hemos decidido describirla como nueva y dedicarla al Dr. Raymond E. Ryckman en virtud de sus valiosos aportes a un mejor conocimiento de este grupo de insectos” ( Zeledón & Ponce 1972: 275).
