sp. nov.

Oragua flavolineata   sp. nov.

( Figures 12–14 View FIGURES 12 – 14 , 16 View FIGURES 15 – 17 )

Total length of male: 9.8 mm (holotype).

Very similar to O. linnavuorii   sp. nov. but with apical aedeagal processes ( Figs 12, 13 View FIGURES 12 – 14 ) distinctly longer and, more importantly, paraphyses ( Figs 12, 14 View FIGURES 12 – 14 ) with stalk thick and rami bearing two pairs of short, spiniform apical processes ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 12 – 14 ).

Female unknown.

Known distribution. Atlantic Forest, Southeastern Brazil (Mantiqueira mountain range), Minas Gerais State.

Type material. Male holotype: “ Brasil, Minas Gerais \ Bocaina de Minas \ P. N. do Itatiaia \ 17 -XI- 2013, 1600-2000 m \ 22 ° 19 ' 20 "S 44 ° 38 ' 23 "W \ D. M. Takiya col.” ( DZRJ). Unfortunately, the holotype has lost the left legs (except the three coxae and hind trochanter) and tarsi of right legs; genitalia were dissected.

Etymology. The species epithet, flavolineata   , refers to the color pattern of the forewings ( Fig. 16 View FIGURES 15 – 17 ).
