Zuata segui (Lallemand)   , description of male.

Tomaspis segui Lallemand, 1924: 378   .

Diagnosis. Color of male ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 12 – 13 C) similar to that of female type ( Carvalho & Webb 2005, fig. 554) but tegmina darker than pronotum.

Description. Male pygofer with low, rounded, setose lobes surrounding base of anal tube, posterior margin sloping towards narrow subgenital plates, with tapered tips hooked ventrad (as in Fig. 44 View FIGURES 36 – 45 A), ventrally calipterate between prominent pygofer lobes (as in Fig. 45 View FIGURES 36 – 45 D); styles ( Carvalho & Webb 2005, fig. 10c) as in Z. bipunctata (Lallemand)   ; theca robust, with dentate median ridge near tip on anterior surface, apical gonopore flanked by divergent angles (as in Fig. 45 View FIGURES 36 – 45 C). Length: 7.5–7.8 mm, width across eyes 1.8–1.9 mm, across pronotum 2.3–2.5 mm; length of eye 0.6 mm, of side margins of pronotum 0.6 mm.

Remarks. A female was taken with the only known male specimen at Paramo de Anango in May or June, 1949 by Wm. C. Macintyre ( NCSU). The genitalia are similar to those of Z. tettigoniella   (see below) but the color pattern of both sexes are entirely different. The female type, also from Ecuador, has paler tegmina than the male but the additional female has tegmina entirely dark behind the transverse pale band, showing that this is variable.
