(Figs. 69–71, 282, 310, Map 12View MAP 12)

Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera coronae  is most similar to G. infulae  but differs from the latter by having a narrower gnathos, a more upturned costal furca of valva, a narrower cucullus, and a narrower apical cornutus of the aedeagal vesica..

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

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum brown or brown intermixed with few brown scales tipped with pale brown. Legs brown intermixed with few brown scales tipped with pale brown and pale­brown scales on apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres. Forewing (Fig. 310): Length 7.0– 8.9 mm (n = 36), brown intermixed with dark­brown scales and few brown scales tipped with pale brown and pale­brown scales; cell with 4 large, darkbrown spots, 2 spots near middle, 2 spots near distal end [some specimens with spots in cell faint or absent]. Undersurface brown. Hindwing: Brown.

Abdomen (Fig. 69): Male with 4 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3 and terga 3–4. Sex scales between terga 2–3 appear slightly larger than the sex scales between terga 3–4.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 71–72): Uncus elongate, broadly constricted above a wide base, widened subapically, apex setose and acuminate; gnathos setose, protuberant, wide throughout length, upturned apically; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent from a wide base, fusing midway from posteroventral margin of tegumen to base of uncus; costa nearly straight from a shallow depression slightly beyond a slanted, basal digitate process to apical furca; furca acuminate, slightly upturned; sacculus twisted apically, constricting valva slightly before middle, widened distoventrally, forming an elongate and broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose, with a short, narrowly rounded outer margin; vesica denticulate, bearing a large, hornlike, apical cornutus; cornutus dilated basally, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia (Fig. 282): Papillae anales elongate, wider basally than apically; apophysis posterioris and apophysis anterioris about equal in length; eighth sternum about equal in width as eighth tergum; posterior margins of eighth sternum and eighth tergum broadly rounded; anterior margin of eighth sternum broadly emarginate, anterior margin of eighth tergum straight; antrum greatly enlarged posterolaterally from a broadly constricted anterior part, posterior margin broadly emarginate medially, posterolateral margins broadly rounded; anterior part of antrum bearing a pair of elongate, spinelike processes inside cavity formed from outer wall; ductus bursae short; corpus bursae densely denticulate within anterior half; ductus seminalis basally enlarged, coiled from base to apex, each coil gradually narrowed distally; ductus bursae with a short, single­coiled, internal support; membrane of basal coil slightly denticulate; side opposite ductus seminalis with a convoluted, internal plate.

Distribution ( Map 12View MAP 12): Glyphidocera coronae  is known from several south­eastern and south­central coastal sites, northward across the Cordillera Central to the Caribbean Coast.

Etymology: The species epithet coronae  is derived from the Latin word “corona,” meaning crown.
