Tuberculobasis sp. 2

Figure 55 View FIGURES 55 – 56

Specimens examined. 1 Ƥ, PERU, Loreto Department, Exploration Lodge, 50 miles, NE of Iquitos on Amazon River at junction of the Yanomano River (3 º 21´59 " S, 72 º 47´56 " W), 27 -VIII- 1991, S.W. Dunkle leg (SWD).

Remarks. Median lobe of hind prothoracic lobe ( Fig. 55 View FIGURES 55 – 56 ) similar to that of female of T. williamsoni ( Fig. 52 View FIGURES 47 – 54 ), but mesepisternal tubercles different and not connected with mesostigmal plate as in T. williamsoni ( Fig. 52 View FIGURES 47 – 54 ). Tubercle of Tuberculobasis sp. 2 is unique by having the shape of a ball with a basal ring ( Fig. 55 View FIGURES 55 – 56 ). This species also has top of head orange and it is most probably new. However, since it could represent the female one of the six species with unknown females, I am not naming it.
