Henryaria thomasi  sp. n.

Diagnosis.

Head strongly convex behind eyes, forming short neck; eyes relatively small, not surpassing dorsal margin of head; jugal ridge developed; vertex rounded; buccular juncture V-shaped. Evaporative area extensive. Mesepimeron emergent. Profemur incrassate, with two rows of spines; aedeagus without spines, seminal duct on vesica and gonoporal process distinctly wide; gonoporal process broadened towards apex.

Description.

Relatively small (ca. 6 mm long), pilose. Head (Figs 1-3, 11-14) shiny, with many grouped punctures forming a coriaceous texture; head strongly convex behind eyes, forming a short neck; eyes relatively small, not surpassing dorsal margin of head in lateral view; ocelli closer to eyes than to posterior margin of head; jugal ridge developed; vertex rounded; buccular juncture V-shaped at level of antenniferous tubercles. Scape relatively short but surpassing apex of head.

Thorax: Pronotum, scutellum and hemelytra pruinose. Pronotum punctate, with punctures slightly larger on posterior pronotal lobe; lateral margins of both pronotal lobes rounded; with ring-like collar well differentiated. Clavus with 3 rows of punctures, and partial fourth between inner and median rows on distal three-quarters. Evaporative area extensive. Mesepimeron emergent (Fig. 4). Procoxa with spine; protrochanter unarmed; profemur (Figs 5, 13) incrassate, with 2 rows of spines; protibia slightly curved, with numerous minute tubercles over entire ventral surface; male mesofemur unarmed.

Aedeagus (Figs 10, 19) lacking spines, sperm reservoir well developed, vesica with two membranous lobes partially sclerotized; seminal duct on vesica and gonoporal process distinctly wide; gonoporal process broadened towards apex.

Etymology.

This new genus is named after our dear friend Thomas J. Henry (Systematic Entomology Laboratory [SEL], ARS, USDA, c/o National Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC), in honor of his many fundamental contributions to the knowledge of Heteroptera  . Besides his brilliant career, Dr. Henry has been a role model to us, always sharing his knowledge and passion for true bugs.
