Sagola arboricola Broun, 1921a: 502   . Hudson 1923: 366, 1934: 184; Newton and Thayer 2005b; Nomura and Leschen 2006: 241.

Type Material. Lectotype. NEW ZEALAND: Otago Lake : 1♀ ( BMNH), glued on rectangular card, “4015. ♀ ” [white label, handwritten]; “New Zealand Broun Coll. Brit. Mus. 1922–482.” [white label, printed]; “Hollyford. 19.2.1914.” [white label, handwritten]; “ Sagola   ♀ arboricola.” “LECTOTYPE Sagola arboricola Broun Desig. Park and Carlton 2013   ” [red label, printed]   . Paralectotypes (n = 4: 2 males; 2 females). NEW ZEALAND: Otago Lakes   : 2♂♂ 2♀♀ ( BMNH), same as holotype. The lectotype designation is required because Broun did not explicitly designate a type specimen, and his comments suggest that multiple specimens were examined ( Broun 1921a: 502). This designation will fix the identity of the species and facilitate its recognition by future workers   .

Diagnosis. This species can be distinguished from the other species of the arboricola   speciesgroup by the following combination of characters: body length 2.3–2.7 mm; male antennomeres 2–10 with tubercles; ventral surface of male head with inverted triangular process bearing dense setae behind mouthparts; male abdominal ventrite VII with round depression medially; shape of genitalia unique to species.

Redescription. Length 2.3–2.7 mm. Body reddish brown, antennae, legs, maxillary palpi, and elytra paler ( Fig. 41a View Fig ). Head: Bluntly triangular, widest across eyes ( Fig. 41e View Fig ). Ventral surface of male head with inverted triangular process bearing dense setae behind mouthparts ( Fig. 41f View Fig ). Antennomere 1 approximately 1.5 times longer than wide, 2 longer than wide, 3 subquadrate, 4 longer than wide, 5–10 subquadrate, male 2–10 with tubercles. Frontal sulcus deep, reaching onethird length of eye ( Fig. 41e View Fig ). Anterior frontal fovea oval ( Fig. 41e View Fig ), posterior frontal fovea round ( Fig. 41e View Fig ). Eye large and prominent, approximately as long as temple ( Fig. 41e View Fig ). Thorax: Prosternum as long as wide, widest at midpoint. Elytra rectangular ( Fig. 41a View Fig ). Mesoand metathorax trapezoidal, longer than wide. Abdomen: Tergite IV with pair of transverse patches of microtrichia reaching middle, less developed in female. Male abdominal ventrite VII with round depression medially. Basolateral foveae of abdominal ventrites V–VI very small. Aedeagus: Median lobe triangular, dorsal process large, V-shaped ( Fig. 41c View Fig ). Phallobase of median lobe symmetrical and rectangular ( Fig. 41c View Fig ). Parameres symmetrical and rectangular with sparse setae anteriorly ( Fig. 41c View Fig ).

Type Locality. Hollyford , Otago Lakes, New Zealand   .

Distribution. Bay of Plenty, Buller, Dunedin, Fiordland, Nelson, Mid Canterbury, Otago Lakes, Rangitikei, South Canterbury, Marlborough Sounds, Southland, Taranaki, Westland, Waikato ( Fig. 42 View Fig : black circles).
