Diagnosis. Paramere, in lateral view, irregularly lamellar; anterior margin strongly sinuous; posterior margin strongly indented along apical third, convex in basal two thirds; apex squarish, with sclerotised ridge along apex. Aedeagus complex unipartite; in lateral view, dorsal lobe subtriangular; ventral process with apical expansion smaller than dorsal lobe, globular. Female subgenital plate, in lateral view, with basal half of ventral outline strongly expanded, apical half almost straight to convex; lacking group of setae on dorsum subapically; with seta-free patch subapically; in ventral view, apex slightly broad, rounded.

Description. Colouration. Body with white striped-pattern; variation: vertex with stripe along lateral margins seldom absent; older specimens with markings with dark outline. Head and thorax pale yellowish-orange, orange to yellowish-brown. Gena and genal process lighter than head. Eye grey to dark red; ocelli colourless to orange. Antenna light to dark yellow, segments 1–2 concolorous with vertex. Clypeus concolorous or slightly lighter than vertex, lighter medially and slightly darker along edges; rostrum light to dark yellow. Thorax sometimes with margins of sclerites slightly darker. Mesopraescutum sometimes with posterior half irregularly coloured. Forewing colourless to yellowish, yellow around Cu 1b and sometimes around rest of veins apically; veins light to dark yellow; pterostigma concolorous or slightly lighter than veins. Hindwing colourless. Legs light to dark yellow with pro- and mesotarsi darker. Abdomen dark yellow, orange to medium yellowish-brown, usually lighter ventrally; intersegmental membranes light straw-coloured; spiracular sclerites concolorous with tergites. Male terminalia irregularly dark yellow to yellowish-brown. Female terminalia irregularly light to dark yellow, proctiger darker apically.

Structure. Body length ♁ 2.2–2.6 mm (2.42± 0.14 mm), ♀ 2.3–2.9 mm (2.73± 0.24 mm) (5 ♁, 5 ♀). Genal pro-cess ( Fig. 156 View FIGURES 148–162 ) expanded or subconical, irregularly narrowing towards acute, subacute or narrowly rounded apex, 0.5–0.6 times as long as vertex along midline. Antenna 2.0–2.3 times as long as head width; longest terminal seta slightly shorter than segment 10. Apical labium segment 0.2 times longer than head width and 0.7 times longer than median segment. Forewing ( Fig. 186 View FIGURES 183–192 ) 2.7–3.2 times as long as head width, 2.3–2.5 times as long as wide, obovoid, broadly rounded apically, rarely somewhat angulate apically; vein M+Cu 1 0.3–0.4 times as long as Cu 1; ratio a/b 1.4–1.9; ratio c/d 0.7–0.8; ratio e/f 0.4–0.9. Surface spinules distinctly ( Fig. 38 View FIGURES 38–43 ) to moderately ( Fig. 39 View FIGURES 38–43 ) spaced, forming rhomboids; covering apical half or third of cells r 1 and r 2, much reduced around radular areas of cells m 1, m 2 and cu 1, and m 2 basally, covering most of cell cu 2; leaving spinule-free spaces along veins ( Fig. 42 View FIGURES 38–43 ). Radular spinules sometimes present in r 2 but inconspicuous. Metatibia 0.7–0.8 times as long as head width.

Terminalia. Male. Proctiger, in lateral view, 0.3–0.4 times as long as head width; with massive, blunt, weakly down-curved posterior lobe. Paramere, in lateral view ( Figs 262 View FIGURES 256–264 ‾264) 0.9–1.1 times as long as proctiger; irregularly lamellar; anterior margin strongly sinuous; posterior margin strongly indented along apical third, convex in basal two thirds; apex squarish, with sclerotised ridge along apex ( Fig. 263 View FIGURES 256–264 ); inner surface ( Fig. 263 View FIGURES 256–264 ) covered with long setae, longer basally and along posterior margin, with row of thick setae along apical anterior margin, group of thick setae below sclerotised ridge and on apical posterior margin; in dorsal view ( Fig. 306 View FIGURES 283–312 ), bearing posterior tooth. Aedeagus ( Fig. 264 View FIGURES 256–264 ) complex unipartite; in lateral view, dorsal lobe subtriangular; ventral process strongly upturned, with apical expansion weak, smaller than dorsal lobe, globular, bearing long, conical tubercle.—Female (Fig. 336). Proctiger, in lateral view, 0.9 times as long as head width; dorsal outline weakly to moderately concave distal to circumanal ring, apical extension almost straight to sinuous, apex moderately upturned, smoothly transversally truncate to obliquely rounded; circumanal ring 0.3 times as long as proctiger. Subgenital plate, in lateral view, 0.6 times as long as proctiger; apex well-developed; basal half of ventral outline strongly expanded, apical half almost straight to convex; covered with medium long setae in subasal quarter and ventrally throughout, short setae in apical half, longer setae at apex, without group of setae on dorsum subapically, with seta-free patch subapically; in ventral view ( Fig. 366 View FIGURES 363–372 ), lateral margins evenly strongly narrowing at about half towards slightly broad, rounded apex.

Etymology. Named after its host-plant genus, Pterodon   .

Distribution. Brazil: Bahia, Distrito Federal, Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Santa Catarina, S„o Paulo.

Host-plant. A large sample of adults was collected on Pterodon emarginatus Vogel   (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae   , Dipterygeae   ), which is a very likely host.
