Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosí, Mexico.


Gonatocerus uat   is very similar to G. ashmeadi   , from which it can be distinguished by F 1 of the female antenna usually having 2 (rarely 1) longitudinal sensilla ( Fig. 26 View FIGURES 26 – 28 ) (always none in G. ashmeadi   , Fig. 21 View FIGURES 21 – 24 ) and also by the forewing blade being notably infuscated beyond venation, more conspicuously so behind the tip of the marginal vein ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 26 – 28 ) (at most with a faint, uniform brownish tinge in G. ashmeadi   , Fig. 24 View FIGURES 21 – 24 ). Triapitsyn et al. (2006) also provide molecular evidence of the clear separation between G. ashmeadi   and G. u a t.


Argentina, Mexico (Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí), and Peru (Triapitsyn et al. 2006). In the Nearctic region, it is known only from Llera de Canales in Tamaulipas, Mexico, just north of the “border” between the Nearctic and Neotropical regions.
