Leucotrichia botosaneanui Flint, 1996

Fig. 3 View Figure 3


This species is similar to L. chiriquiensis , L. hispida Thomson & Holzenthal, 2015, and L. viridis , three species that also occur in Panama. The phallus of all four species has a similar appearance, due to the elongate basal supports of the midlength complex and the small pair of membranous, apical lobes (Fig. 3E, F View Figure 3 ). Leucotrichia botosaneanui can be distinguished by the small, double-pointed mesoventral process on sternum VII, which is longer and much more prominent in the other species.
