Ipsiura frieseana ( Ducke, 1902) 

( Figs 57–62View FIGURES 57 – 62)

Chrysis frieseana Ducke, 1902: 99  . Lectotype Ƌ [examined by photos]: BRAZIL: Pará (MNHN). Designed by Bohart, in Kimsey & Bohart (1991: 509).

Neochrysis (Ipsiura) frieseana: Bohart 1966: 142  .

Ipsiura frieseana: Bohart 1985: 710  .

Diagnosis. Ipsiura frieseana  most closely resembles I. genbergi (Dahlbom)  , I. lilloi Bohart  and I. obidana Bohart. It  can be readily distinguished from these and other Ipsiura  species by the following combination of characters: T3 with low, sloping gently prepit swelling (absent or not recognizable in I. genbergi  , I. lilloi  and I. obidana  ), T3 with shallow, reduced, and well-separated punctures (definite punctures in I. genbergi  , I. lilloi  and I. obidana  ); S2 spots separated medially by one-half spot diameter (touching in I. obidana  ), and large basolateral whitish spot on T3 (narrow spot in I. obidana  ).

Female description. Body ( Fig. 57View FIGURES 57 – 62). Length: 7.8 mm. Coloration: head predominantly green; F1 brownish green; mesosoma metallic green, with faint bluish highlights on dorsum, mostly on mesoscutum and pronotum; metasoma metallic green, with conspicuous transverse purplish stripes on dorsum of T1 and T2; T3 with large lateral whitish spot; wing membrane light brown, with brown veins; femora and tibiae greenish; tarsi light brown, meso- and hind basitarsi green. Head: TFCAbout TFC enclosing the median ocellus, widely opened medially, with distinct lateral secondary facial carina ( Fig. 58View FIGURES 57 – 62); F1 longer than broad, 1.3× as long as F2; scapal basin with dense silvery pubescence. Mesosoma: fore femur without flattened area or ventral tooth-like projection on outer surface of distal margin, diameter of distal area subequal to diameter of proximal area; fore wing with short M distal to discoidal cell (as in Fig. 190View FIGURE 190), R1 short, obsolescent (as in Fig. 145View FIGURES 141 – 146); dorsal surface of pronotum wider than head; lower lateral pronotal surface irregularly punctate anteriorly, with indistinct posterior area delimited by faint transverse ridge; metanotum slightly elevated distally but not projecting above the propodeal surface; mesopleural lower posterior margin carinate, with equally separated tooth-like projections. Metasoma: T3 with six acute distal teeth ( Fig. 59View FIGURES 57 – 62), pit row obsolescent, indicated primarily by small lateral pits, prepit swelling very low, sloping gently; S2 spots medium-sized, medially separated by one spot diameter ( Fig. 60View FIGURES 57 – 62). Punctation: fore femur impunctate, tiny, sparse punctures only distally on outer surface; T3 with shallow, tiny and well-separated punctures.

Male. Same as female, except for the characteristic shape of S2 spots as shown in Fig. 60View FIGURES 57 – 62 and the broad dark band occupying much of the dorsum of meso- and metasoma. Genital capsule ( Fig. 61View FIGURES 57 – 62): cuspis as long as gonostylus, broader than gonostylus basally; digitus very narrow, clavate apically; gonostylus and cuspis with short setae apically; aedeagus lobes acute apically, strongly convergent apically.

Variation. The most conspicuous variation noticed in this species involves the distal margin of T3. Some specimens have a short distal margin, with small teeth, and a flattened appearance in dorsal view (Brazil: Pará, Óbidos–MZUSP). Body length 6.6–7.9 mm.

Hosts. Unknown.

Distribution. Brazil (AC, AM, BA, MA, MG, PA, SC, SP); Ecuador (Morona Santiago); French Guiana (Kourou); Surinam (Paramaribo) ( Fig. 62View FIGURES 57 – 62).
