status

 

Olcotomaspis Lallemand   , redefined.

Olcotomaspis Lallemand, 1949: 29   .

Hyalotomaspis Lallemand, 1949: 30   (subgenus, stat.nov.)

Diagnosis. Resembling the old-world Phymatostetha   but with antennal sensillae not flattened and quite different male genitalia (compare to figures of Phymatostetha in Metcalf & Horton 1934   ).

Description. Subgenital plates separate to (but not beyond) base as in Tomaspisina   , but with low, spiculate basal lobe; theca strongly laterally compressed, rcurved, tip truncate, with spiculate anterior angle and long pair of erect processes prominently toothed on outer edge ( Carvalho & Webb 2005, figs 186–187).

Included taxa: Hyalotomaspis Lallemand   is an autapomorph, a single species with the tegminal venation prominent on hyaline wings but having all the other characteristic features of the type-species of Olcotomaspis   including the characteristic orange pattern on the notum (compare Fig. 7 View FIGURES 1 – 8 A to fig. 557 in Carvalho & Webb 2005). Three species belong to this genus: Olcotomaspis versicolor (Lallemand)   and two new combinations from Tomaspis   : clarissa Jacobi   (type-species of Hyalotomaspis   ) and Tomaspis laterinotata Fowler   , known only from the female holotype. The antennal sensilla of the latter could not be ascertained as the postpedicels on both sides of the head are appressed to the gena ( Fig. 17 View FIGURES 17 – 19 C).
