Glyphidocera guaroa Adamski, 2002 

(Figs. 213–215, 358, Map 39View MAP 39)

Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera guaroa  is most similar to G. zophocrossa  but differs from the latter by having a dorsal strut of the tegumen that is parallel­sided from the posteroventral margin of the tegumen to the base of the uncus, and dorsal furca of valval costa that does not extend beyond the ventral furca.

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

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum brownish yellow. Legs brownish yellow intermixed with brown scales, apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres brownish yellow. Forewing (Fig. 358): Length 5.2 –7.0 mm (n = 83), brownish yellow intermixed with brownishorange and few dark­brown scales; cell and surrounding areas paler than marginal areas; cell with 2 spots, 1 spot near middle, 1 spot near distal end [rubbed specimens have spots faint or absent]; marginal spots absent or fused. Undersurface brown intermixed with brownish yellow scales along costal margin. Hindwing: Brownish gray.

Abdomen (Fig. 213): Male with 5 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 214–215): Uncus elongate, wide at base, broadly constricted near 1 / 3, narrowly rounded apically, apex rounded and setose; gnathos setose, protuberant, gradually narrowed from base to apex, apically upturned; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent, fusing medially, extending widely from posteroventral margin to base of uncus; costa of valva gradually sloped dorsally from a shallow depression beyond basal, digitate process to dorsal furca; apex widely bifurcate, with inner margin broadly rounded; dorsal furca long, ventral furca wide and falcate, extending slightly beyond outer margin of cucullus; sacculus apically twisted, constricting valva slightly before midlength, widening distoventrally, forming an elongate and broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose; vesica of aedeagus denticulate, bearing a large, conical, apical cornutus; cornutus with one side shortened near midlength, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia: Unknown.

Distribution ( Map 39View MAP 39): Glyphidocera guaroa  is known from several north­central sites in Costa Rica and coastal sites in south­central to the eastern part of the country.

Remarks: In the original description of Glyphidocera guaroa, Adamski (2002)  erroneously figured the wing venation and male and female genitalia of G. vappae  .
