Redescription. See Huber (1988).

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus (Cosmocomoidea) novifasciatus  is a member of the ater subgroup of the ater species group. Its main distinguishing features are as follows. Body dark brown. Female antenna ( Fig. 417View FIGURES 417 – 419) with mps usually present on F3–F8 (F4 rarely lacking mps), F1 and F2 usually without mps (F2 rarely with 1 mps). Male antenna ( Fig. 420View FIGURES 420 – 423) with F1 about as long as wide. Propodeum ( Figs 418View FIGURES 417 – 419, 421View FIGURES 420 – 423) with submedian carinae uniformly thickened, united anteriorly at the dorsellum to form a closed median area on the propodeum. Forewing ( Figs 419View FIGURES 417 – 419, 423View FIGURES 420 – 423) hyaline or with faint, uniform, brown tinge, and with usually distinct, occasionally indistinct, infumate spot just beyond the stigmal vein (Neotropical specimens tend to have a somewhat darker spot than Nearctic ones); discal setae absent behind venation except for a few setae behind apex of the stigmal vein. Male genitalia as in Fig. 422View FIGURES 420 – 423.

Distribution. NEOTROPICAL: Colombia *, Guatemala *, Honduras, Mexico (Triapitsyn 2006a), and Venezuela ( Huber 1988). NEARCTIC: Canada ( Huber 1988), Mexico (Triapitsyn 2006a), and USA. OCEA- NIA: Hawaiian Islands ( USA: Hawaii) (Triapitsyn 2006a).

Hosts. Graphocephala coccinea (Förster)  , G. versuta (Say)  , Homalodisca liturata Ball  , H. vitripennis (Germar)  ( Huber 1988; Triapitsyn 2006a), and also very likely (although not yet documented) Oncometopia orbona (Fabricius)  (Triapitsyn 2006a) ( Cicadellidae  ).
