( Figs. 1‑14View Figures 1-7View Figures 8-14)

Triplocania magnifica Roesler, 1940 a: 241  , figs. 27-31; Lienhard & Smithers, 2002 (catalog); Gaedike, 1970: 465 (catalog); Silva-Neto & García Aldrete, 2016 (catalog); Silva-Neto, García Aldrete & Rafael, 2016c: 252 (taxonomy).

Diagnosis: Forewing with a U-shaped band from apex of the areola postica to anterior and posterior ends of pterostigma, forewing M abruptly concave before its first bifurcation,areola postica sinuous with a concavity in the middle; hypandrium of three sclerites, with central sclerite straight anteriorly, posteriorly with one short, almost triangular projection on each antero-lateral extreme, with a long, slender, blunt projection in the middle, setae as illustrated; side struts proximally expanded in shield shape and v1 stout and wider in the middle.

Redescription of the male

Color: Compound eyes black, ocelli hyaline, with ochre centripetal crescents; head pattern ( Fig. 1View Figures 1-7). Scape brown, pedicel yellow, f1-f3 yellow. Mx4 yellow with distal end brown.Femora brown with distal ends yellow; tibiae pale brown; tarsomere 1 pale yellow and tarsomeres 2-3 pale brown. Forewing with a brown marginal band from R₄₊₅ to areola postica, from it arise two brown arms, to anterior and distal ends of pterostigma, U-shaped, leaving a hyaline area between them; a large dark brown area on proximal end of wing; veins brown, with dark brown spots at wing margin ( Fig. 2View Figures 1-7). Hindwings almost hyaline, with area limited by CuP brown anteriorly and pale brown posteriorly, apex pale brown; veins brown, with dark brown spots at wing margin ( Fig. 3View Figures 1-7).

Morphology: Compound eyes without interommatidial setae. Outer cusp of lacinial tip broad, with three denticles ( Fig. 4View Figures 1-7). Forewing pterostigma basally narrow, wider in the middle, narrowing posteriorly; areola postica with apex rounded, strongly slanted posteriorly; 2A reaching wing margin ( Fig. 2View Figures 1-7). Hindwing R₂₊₃ and R₄₊₅ straight, M sinuous ( Fig. 3View Figures 1-7). Hypandrium ( Fig. 5View Figures 1-7) of three sclerites, central sclerite straight anteriorly, posteriorly with one short, almost triangular projection on each antero-lateral extreme, with a long, slender, blunt projection in the middle, setae as illustrated; side sclerites very large, wider in the middle, narrowing at the ends, acuminate, setae as illustrated. Phallosome ( Fig. 6View Figures 1-7) shield shaped, side struts expanded, robust, fused, with a small longitudinal pigmented band in the middle, posteriorly fused to external parameres, these stout, distally sclerotized, bearing pores included in a less sclerotized area; a mesal endophallic sclerite, U-shaped, wide at base and narrowing posteriorly; two pairs of endophallic sclerites, a small mesal posterior pair, elliptical, surrounded by a distinct membranous area, a posterior lateral pair anteriorly narrow, widening posteriorly with rounded apex and a pre-apical acuminate projection in its inner margin; other membranous areas as illustrated. Epiproct wide, almost straight anteriorly, rounded posteriorly, with three setae mesally, other setae as illustrated ( Fig. 7View Figures 1-7). Paraprocts broad, narrow at their point of attachment to the clunium, widening posteriorly, with setae in a less sclerotized posterior area, sensory fields with 34 trichobothria on basal rosettes ( Fig. 7View Figures 1-7).
