Osbornellus bartletti Domínguez & Godoy , sp. nov.

( Figs. 23a–23e)

Description. Length: 5.0 mm. Member of the O. auronitens group ( Figs. 1a). General description as in O. eberhardi .

Male genitalia: Pygofer less than twice as long as wide, moderately projected posteriorly, with medium sized macrosetae dispersed along posterior third ( Fig. 23a). Valve square. Plate long, rounded at apex, with plumose setae ( Fig. 23b). Style with apophysis short, truncate but sharply pointed on one side ( Fig. 23c). Aedeagus in ventral view wide at base and rounded at edge; shaft with apex truncate, shorter than ventral processes ( Fig. 23d). Ventral processes straight, parallel sided, slightly separated, tapered at tips. Shaft in lateral view curved dorsad; dorsal projection, short, straight, truncate. Gonopore apical. Ventral processes slender, tapered, curved dorsad then caudad near apices; quite close to shaft, then separating ( Fig. 23e).

Diagnosis. O. bartletti is similar to O. seudopuniceus externally but in lateral view the aedeagal shaft is more curved and shorter than the ventral processes. In O. seudopuniceus the aedeagus is only slightly curved.

Distribution. Known only from Costa Rica; 1210 m.

Etymology. This species is named for Charles R. Bartlett in recognition of his loan of specimens.

Type material: Holotype, male, COSTA RICA: San José, Estación Santa Elena, Las Nubes , 1210 m, 13- 16-VII-1996, M. Segura ( INBio).
