Diagnosis. Body black, without metallic reflections, at most with some bronze tinge; clypeal margin not incised (cf. Figs 1–2); both F 4 and F 5 large, with sensilla (cf. Fig. 4); mesosoma moderately arched (cf. Fig. 10); pecten regular, about 3 / 4 length of hind tibia (cf. Fig. 15); forewing without bare area between R and apical margin, basal cell mostly bare (Fig. 21). Male with eyes normal and scape not swollen.

Variation. In one of the examined females the eye height was about 1.3 X as long as its length (as in some M. penetrans   ). Rarely, F 4 can be distinctly smaller than F 5.

Comments. This species most closely resembles M. penetrans (Kirby)   , M. gibsoni   sp. nov. and M. noyesi   sp. nov. The main character that separates females of M. conjungens   from those of M. penetrans   , i.e. the bare area between the stigma and the apex of forewing, which is present in M. penetrans   but absent from M. conjungens   , is difficult to assess in some cases and needs careful examination with light coming from the correct angle (Figs 21–22).

Distribution. Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Serbia, Sweden, U.K. ( Noyes 2003), Romania ( Mitroiu 2008).

Hosts. Unknown.
