Diagnosis.— Relationships between Glyphidocera olivae  and its congeners are difficult to determine because the former possesses a combination of features that include abdominal sex scales in males between terga 2–3 and terga 3–4 that are subequal in size [fewer sex scales between terga 3–4 than between 2–3], dorsal strut of tegumen with arms fused medially from the posterolateral margin to the base of the uncus, costal furca of the valva protuberant and subequal in size, and the outer margin of the valval cucullus narrowly rounded.

Description.— Head: Vertex pale brownish yellow or pale brownish yellow intermixed with brown scales; frontoclypeus pale brownish yellow; outer surface of labial palpus brown intermixed with pale brownish­yellow scales to apical margin of segment II, segment III pale brownish yellow intermixed with few brown scales; inner surface pale brownish yellow intermixed with few brown scales; scape of antenna brown intermixed with few pale brownish­yellow scales, flagellum with alternating bands of brown and pale brownish­yellow scales; male with 4 th flagellum dorsally protuberant and curved, forming a deep concavity opposite slightly excavated flagellomeres 5–6; proboscis pale brownish yellow.

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum brownish yellow intermixed with few brown scales. Legs brown intermixed with pale brownish­yellow scales to apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres. Forewing (Fig. 338): Length 4.3–5.5 mm (n = 100), pale brownish yellow intermixed with brownish­orange, brown, and dark­brown scales; cell and surrounding areas paler than marginal areas; cell with 2 brown spots, 1 large spot near middle, and 1 spot near distal end [some specimens with spots present or absent]; dark­brown marginal spots present or absent, if present spots may be fused or separate. Undersurface brown intermixed with brownish­yellow scales along costa. Hindwing: Brownish gray.

Abdomen (Fig. 153): Male with 3 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3 and terga 3–4.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 154–155): Uncus elongate, wide at base, broadly constricted near midlength, broadly rounded apically, apex narrowly rounded and setose; gnathos sparsely setose, protuberant, wide throughout length, apically upturned; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent, medially fused widely from posteroventral margin to base of uncus; costa of valva nearly straight from shallow depression beyond a basal, digital process to a slightly upturned dorsal furca; apex bifurcate, with inner margin between furcae narrowly rounded; dorsal and ventral furcae subequal in size, dorsal furca wide, broadly rounded apically, ventral furca narrow, acuminate; sacculus twisted apically, constricting valva near midlength, widening distoventrally, forming a broadly rounded, outwardly protuberant cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose; vesica of aedeagus with many stout, conical cornuti, and bearing a large, conical, apical cornutus; cornutus with a slightly bulbous base, one side shortened near midlength, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia (Fig. 284): Papillae anales elongate, slightly wider basally than apically; apophysis posterioris and apophysis anterioris about equal in length; eighth sternum slightly narrower than eighth tergum; eighth sternum with posterior margin broadly rounded, anterior margin broadly emarginate; eighth tergum with posterior margin broadly rounded, anterior margin broadly emarginate; antrum enlarged posteriorly from a constricted anterior part, posterior margin nearly straight, posterolateral margin angular; anterior end with a pair of elongate, spinelike processes within cavity formed from outer wall; ductus bursae short, sparsely denticulate; corpus bursae slightly enlarged on anterior end, sparsely denticulate; ductus seminalis large, coiled throughout length, each coil decreasing in size distally, and with a long, 10 ­coiled, internal support; side opposite ductus bursae with a moderate, platelike internal support.

Distribution ( Map 28View MAP 28): Glyphidocera olivae  is known from north­western Costa Rica along the Cordillera de Guanacaste, east to collecting sites north of the Cordillera Central, and south to near the mouth of the Golfo de Nicoya.

Etymology: The specific epithet olivae  is derived from the Latin “oliva” or olive.
