Covered with short silvery pile posterodorsally, short piceous pile on vertex and frons, and longer silvery pile posterior to eye. Ocelli rosaceous, eyes castaneous. Ventral head green with piceous mark on posterior lorum along suture with anteclypeus, piceous diverging to second line adjoining to posterior angle of postclypeus and castaneous spot on anteromedial gena in some paratypes. Long silvery pile on lorum and gena. Postclypeus green with transverse castaneous fascia across apex and ochraceous lateral margin, with nine transverse grooves, short silvery pile and white pubescence on lateral postclypeus.

Cruciform elevation tawny with lateral green regions between arms, wing groove green, lighter mark extending anteriorly from terminus of anterior arm of cruciform elevation to mark in posteromedial lateral sigillae. White pubescent spot on anterolateral margin of mesonotum. Metanotum green, tawny lateral spot in some paratypes. Long, dense silvery pile on mesonotum, very dense on lateral margin giving the appearance of a silvery fascia, laterally and posteriorly and laterally between arms of cruciform elevation, and in wing groove, shorter silvery pile on dorsolateral disc and between anterior arms of cruciform elevation. Short piceous pile on dorsoanterior and on posterior mesothorax lateral to terminus of anterior arm of cruciform elevation. Ventral thoracic segments green with castaneous spot on episternum 2, epimeron 2, and episternum 3, with white pubescence and long silvery pile.

Wings: Fore wings slightly bronzed, hyaline with eight apical cells, hind wings hyaline with six apical cells. Venation green except greenish-tawny costa, tawny cubitus posterior + anal vein 1 and anal vein 2 + 3 with piceous posterior margin, piceous cubitus anterior along basal cell, piceous arculus and bases of cubitus anterior and median veins, piceous spot at node. Basal cell and proximal cubital cell clouded. Pterostigma present. Infuscation on distal wing veins connecting to infuscation on ambient vein producing L-shaped marks, on proximal radius anterior 2 connecting across radial crossvein, on radiomedial crossvein, on median crossvein, on mediocubital crossvein which connects to mark on distal cubitus anterior 1, cubitus anterior 2, spot at node, and on nodal line on median vein and median vein 3 + 4. Basal membrane of fore wing white at base becoming dark gray distally and posteriorly. Venation of hind wing green except tawny cubitus posterior, and anal veins 2 and 3. Anal cell 3 and anal cell 2 along anal vein 3 dark gray, anal cell 1 and 2 along anal vein 2 gray. Light infuscation along entire ambient vein.

Legs: Legs green with castaneous spots on lateral base of coxa, castaneous fascia on medial anterior coxa, anterior and medial trochanters, femora striped with light castaneous, and distal tibiae becoming castaneous. Fore femora proximal spine green, thin, elongate and adpressed against femur, secondary spine triangular green with tawny tip, very small, triangular, green apical spine. Tarsi light castaneous, tarsal claws with piceous tips, tibial spurs and comb castaneous with piceous tip.

Operculum: Male operculum with slightly curved lateral margin, smoothly rounded posterolateral margin, reaching almost to anterior of sternite II, green with dark spot on medial base, covered with white pubescence. Medial margin rounded, extending to middle of hind trochanter. Meracanthus pointed, green with ochraceous tip and dark spot on lateral base, not reaching to middle of operculum, with sparse white pubescence. Female operculum with rounded posterolateral margin forming an approximate right angle between lateral and posterolateral margins, posterior margin curving anteriorly just lateral to meracanthus base, terminating medially at middle meracanthus reaching to anterior of sternite II, green covered with white pubescence. Female meracanthus as long as operculum, similar green with ochraceous tip and white pubescence. Opercula with long silvery pile radiating from edge.

Abdomen: Abdomen green, castaneous in some paratypes, tergite 2 with ochraceous hind margin, light tawny spots on lateral tergites, covered with long silvery pile, especially dense laterally, piceous pile along dorsal midline and dorsolateral regions of tergites 3–7. Timbal cover recurved, ochraceous exposing timbal, short silvery pile radiating from timbal cover. Timbal with three long and one intercalary ribs, dark spot on timbal plate. Female abdominal segment 9 castaneous dorsally, large piceous fasciae on dorsolateral surfaces that bifurcates at posterior terminus with the lateral branch terminating in the stigma, green ventrolaterally, tawny ventrally and posteriorly, with dense, long, golden pile, short piceous pile anterolaterally. Posterior margin of abdominal segment 9 sinuate. Sternites and epipleurites green except tawny posterior VII and VIII, male sternites III –VII translucent, sternite VIII U-shaped radiating long silvery pile. Female sternite VII with sinuate posterior margin and medial notch, light castaneous spot laterally in some paratypes. Spiracles white.

Genitalia: Male pygofer greenish with castaneous mark on lateral base covered with short silvery pile, with rounded distal shoulder, dorsal beak roughly triangular with piceous pile dorsally. Pygofer basal lobe indistinct, pygofer upper lobes ochraceous, elongated with medial bend at two-thirds its length, adpressed to pygofer with rounded terminus. Anal styles tawny, anal tube greenish-tawny. Median uncus lobe greenish-tawny, short, semicircular, surrounded by lateral uncus lobes. Lateral uncus lobes greenish-tawny, wrapping around sides of median uncus lobe and meeting along midline posterior to median uncus lobe, recurved laterally forming a semicircle in lateral view with rounded terminus forming a notch on posterior midline, basal lateral uncus lobes rounded forming a support around base of aedeagus. Aedeagus tubular, dark castaneous.

Female gonapophysis VIII tawny, gonapophysis IX dark castaneous. Gonocoxite X piceous extending just past dorsal beak with radiating golden pile. Anal styles greenish.

Measurements (mm). N = 5 males or 10 females, mean (range). Length of body: male 26.30 (23.6–29.8), female 26.39 (23.7–27.9); length of fore wing: male 37.78 (35.7–41.4), female 39.44 (37.0–41.0); width of fore wing: male 11.74 (11.2–12.4), female 12.13 (11.0–12.9); length of head: male 3.68 (3.3–4.2), female 3.81 (3.5– 4.3); width of head including eyes: male 7.74 (7.3–8.6), female 8.24 (7.3–8.8); width of pronotum including suprahumeral plates: male 10.50 (9.3–12.8), female 12.08 (10.2–12.9); width of mesonotum: male 8.14 (7.5–9.2), female 9.04 (8.4–9.5).

Diagnosis. This new species can be distinguished from all Procollina   species except P. biolleyi   , P. obesa   , and P. ustulata   n. sp. by the colored tinting of the fore wings. The fore wings are lightly bronzed, the body coloration is green marked with piceous and castaneous, and male body lengths are less than 30 mm in P. webbi   n. sp. rather than the heavily bronzed fore wings, primarily brown body coloration and male body length greater than 32 mm in P. biolleyi   and P. ustulata   n. sp. Procollina obesa   can be distinguished from P. webbi   n. sp. by the smaller body size (21 mm vs. 26 mm), the longitudinal infuscation in the fore wing apical cells, the small spots of infuscation within all fore wing cells, and the lack of the four green spots across dorsal pronotum that are found in the new species.

Distribution. The species is known only from the type series collected in Cartago and Puntarenas Provinces, Costa Rica.
