Ishiharella multiprotrusa Yu, Yang & Dietrich  , sp. nov.

( Figs 36–43View FIGURES 36 – 43, 52– 53View FIGURES 44 – 53)

Type material. Holotype: 1 ♂, Thailand, Loei Phu Ruea NP office, 17 ° 28.805 ’N, 101 ° 21.242 ’E, 870m., malaise trap, 12–19 July 2006, Patikhom Tamtio leg ( QSBG).

Length: ♂ 3.54mm.

Crown orange, area between eyes with two pigmented depressions and yellowish patches ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Eyes grey ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Ocelli white ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Face yellowish, anteclypeus black apically ( Fig. 53View FIGURES 44 – 53). Pronotum orange with brown depression in lateral margin and blackish posteromedial patch ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Scutellum yellowish, scutoscutellar sulcus brownish ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Forewing brown, hind wing hyaline ( Fig. 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Legs yellowish except claws black ( Fig. 53View FIGURES 44 – 53).

Male ventral abdominal apodemes reaching posterior margin of segment 3 ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 36 – 43). Male pygofer narrowed anteriorly, anterior margin bearing few setae ( Figs 38, 39View FIGURES 36 – 43). Subgenital plates longer than pygofer in lateral view, fused almost to apex, bearing 8 macrosetae in one row and ca. 23 microsetae in 3 rows ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 36 – 43). Paramere elongate, apex slender, cheliform ( Fig. 40View FIGURES 36 – 43). Aedeagal shaft short, broad, ovoid, strongly compressed, ventral process nearly symmetrical, bearing three pairs of branches, branches slender and bowed laterad, becoming progressively longer distally ( Figs 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43). Anal tube process falcate in ventral view ( Fig. 43View FIGURES 36 – 43).

Etymology. The name of the new species is derived from the combination of “multi-” and “protrusus”, refering to the aedeagal process with three pairs of branches that look like protrusions.

Remarks. The new species is similar to I. inflata Yu & Yang  , sp. nov. in having three pairs of branches on the aedeagal process ( Figs 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43), but differs from the latter in having the middle pair of branches longer than the basal pair and not crossing the basal pair in lateral view ( Figs 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43), and by shape of the paramere apex ( Fig. 40View FIGURES 36 – 43).
