Adult female (measurements based on n=22)

Unmounted material ( Fig. 1F View FIGURE 1 ). Adult female oval, slightly convex, border of margins thickened. Alcoholpreserved specimens reddish brown to yellowish brown. Insects covered by a shiny and vitreous layer of semitransparent, striated brittle wax; with a visible midline that divides the wax cover into two halves ( Fig. 1F View FIGURE 1 ).

Slide-mounted material ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ). Body 1.23–1.95 (1.27) mm long, 0.78–1.48 (0.87) mm wide, oval.

Dorsum. Derm membranous, without areolations. In older specimens a dorsal longitudinal sclerotized line becomes visible. Dorsal setae absent. Dorsal microducts oval, bilocular, each about 1.8–2.0 µm wide, scattered over dorsum, present in a continuous row around body margin and abundant on a mid-longitudinal line, intermixed with simple pores and preopercular pores. Simple pores of 2 sizes: i) a small pore, each 2.0– 2.2 µm wide, scattered throughout dorsum, more abundant in a continuous row around body margin and in a mid-dorsal longitudinal line; and a larger pore, each about 3.0 µm wide, sparsely scattered over dorsum. Dorsal tubular ducts, dorsal tubercles and pocket-like sclerotizations absent. Preopercular pores circular, each about 2.5–5.0 µm wide, with a thick rim, extending along midline from area anterior to anal plates anteriorly to about mesothorax or metathorax, some pores occasionally present on area laterad to anal plates. Anal plates together subquadrate, plates located at about 1/5 of body length from posterior margin, each plate 110.0–127.5 (120.0–122.5) µm long, 62.5–82.5 (70.0–72.5) µm wide, anterolateral margin 75.0–100.0 (77.5–87.5) µm long, posterolateral margin 70.0–95.0 (90.0–92.5) µm long, with about 4 bluntly spinose apical setae, 1 pair of sharply spinose fringe setae, and about 5 long ventral subapical setae; hypopygial setae not detected. Anal ring bearing 6 setae. A sclerotic area present around anal plates.

Margin. Marginal setae spinose and conical, straight, present in a continuous row around body, most setae each 25.0– 37.5 µm long, longest setae at apex up to 50 µm long, each base 10.0– 12.5 µm wide at widest point (width of sclerotized setal socket); 1 or 2 pairs of marginal setae present next to stigmatic setae, often on dorsal submargin; with about 20–27 (25) setae on each side between anterior and posterior stigmatic areas. Stigmatic clefts very shallow or absent. Stigmatic spines sharply spinose, straight, gradually tapering to a point, present on dorsal submargin, with 1 stigmatic spine in each stigmatic area, anterior stigmatic setae each 60.0–70.0 (60.0–62.5) µm long, posterior stigmatic setae each 62.5–80 (62.5–65.0) µm long. Eyes each about 25.0–32.5 (25) µm wide, located on margin between marginal setae.

Venter. Derm entirely membranous. Perivulvar pores each 4.0–6.0 µm wide, each with mainly 5 loculi, rarely with 4 or 6 loculi, present in a group of about 5–20 pores on each side along anal fold just posterior to vulvar area, with a few pores present anteriorly up to area of posterior legs. Spiracular pores each 4.0–6.0 µm wide, mostly with 5 loculi, but with occasional pores with 3 or 4 loculi and 6–10 loculi, pores often fused, largest pores 6.5–7.5 µm wide; present in a band about 2–5 pores wide, with line of pores extending laterally from each spiracle to body margin and slightly onto dorsum up to base of each stigmatic seta. Ventral microducts each 2.0–3.0 µm wide, scattered throughout venter, most abundant in a submarginal band, absent from anterior to vulva on last 2 abdominal segments and around body margin. Simple pores present on ventral margin only, scattered, absent from elsewhere on venter, each pore circular, about 2.0– 2.2 µm wide, similar in shape and size to the smaller simple pores on dorsum. Ventral tubular ducts present in a submarginal band and also scattered medially on venter, on head, thorax and abdomen, absent from last 2 abdominal segments anterior to vulva and body margin; outer ductule 30.0–50.0 µm long, inner ductule 15.0– 22.5 µm long, with terminal filament ending in a flower-shaped gland. Ventral setae slender, straight or slightly bent, each 7.5–15.0 µm long, present on all abdominal segments; setae on last 3 abdominal segments thicker, 15.0–20.0 µm long; ventral submarginal setae present in a single row, stouter than other ventral setae, each 10.0– 17.5 µm long; with a pair of thick and long ventral cephalic setae, each 32.5– 42.5 µm long, and a thick and long large anal lobe seta present at apex of each posterior anal lobe, each seta tapering to a point, rarely bifurcate, 20.0– 42.5 µm long. Spiracles well developed, anterior spiracular peritremes each 70.0–80.0 (70.0–72.5) µm long, 42.5–50.0 (42.5–47.5) µm wide, posterior peritremes each 65.0–77.5 (65.0– 72.5) µm long, 42.5–50.0 (45.0–47.5) µm wide, with a slight sclerotization around each spiracle; quinquelocular pores present within atrium, totalling about 3–10 per spiracular sclerotization, often hard to detect. Legs well developed, each coxa (excluding coxal process) 107.5–127.5 (107.5–122.5) µm long, trochanter + femur 157.5– 175.0 (157.5–165.0) µm long; tibia + tarsus 200.0–225.0 (200.0–222.5) µm long, without a tibio-tarsal sclerosis; claw 20.0–25.0 (20.0–22.5) µm long, without a denticle. Tarsal digitules similar, knobbed, shorter digitule 35.0– 42.5 (35.0–42.5) µm long, longer digitule 40.0–62.5 (40.0–62.5) µm long; claw digitules similar and broad, each 20.0–25.0 (22.5–25.0) µm long. Antennae each 230–270.0 (235–250) µm long, 7 or 8 segmented (one specimen with a 6-segmented antenna on left side), with fleshy setae present on last 3 (rarely 2) antennal segments; with a very long, slender seta present on segment II. Interantennal setae numbering 3 or 4 pairs, each seta 10.0–67.0 µm long. Mouthparts relatively large; clypeolabral shield 160.0–200.0 (172.5) µm long, 145.0–165.0 (145.0) µm wide; labium 1 segmented, 57.5–87.5 (82.5) µm long, 95.0–125.0 (97.5) µm wide, with 4 pairs of labial setae; basal part of labium membranous.

Diagnosis. The adult female of C. ica can be diagnosed by the combination of the following features: (1) insects covered by a shiny and vitreous layer of semi-transparent, striated, brittle wax; with a visible midline that divides the wax cover into 2 halves; (2) dorsal derm membranous, without areolations; (3) dorsal microducts bilocular, scattered over dorsum and in a continuous row around body margin, and abundant in a mid-longitudinal line; (4) dorsal simple pores of 2 sizes, (5) preopercular pores each with a thick rim, present along midline from area anterior to anal plates anteriorly to about mesothorax or metathorax; (6) anal plates together subquadrate, each plate with about 4 bluntly spinose apical setae, 1 pair of sharply spinose fringe setae, and about 5 long ventral subapical setae, but without hypopygial setae; (7) anal ring bearing 6 setae; (8) marginal setae of 1 type, spinose and conical, straight, present in a continuous row around body; (9) 1 stigmatic spine per stigmatic area; (10) ventral microducts scattered throughout venter, most abundant in a submarginal band, absent from anterior to vulva on last two abdominal segments and from around margins; (11) simple pores present on ventral margin only, scattered, absent from elsewhere on venter; (12) ventral tubular ducts in a submarginal band and also scattered medially on head, thorax and abdomen, absent from last 2 abdominal segments anterior to vulva and along body margin; (13) a pair of submarginal thick, large ventral setae present anteriorly on head, 1 also present at apex of each anal lobe; (14) antennae each 7 or 8 segmented.

Etymology. The species is named after the Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario [Colombian Agricultural and Livestock Institute] (ICA). The species epithet is a noun in apposition.

Notes. Cryptinglisia ica sp. nov. was found on rosemary in the department of Antioquia, Colombia.
