Kompsomymar bicoloratum Lin and Huber


Kompsomymar bicoloratum Lin and Huber   ( Figs. 260–265)

Diagnosis. Funicle with segment 4 white ( Fig. 261) and forewing with wide brown bands ( Fig. 260).

Description. Female. Body length 1280–1450 µm (critical point dried specimens). Colour generally dark brown; mesoscutum with a faint bluish tinge; head, anterior scutellum, a narrow line between pro- and mesocoxa, scape, pedicel, and first two funicle segments light brown to yellow-brown; funicle segment 4, pro- and metacoxa, basal three tarsomeres, and gastral segment 1 white to cream coloured. Eye grey, with a pink tinge (critical point dried specimens). Fore wing ( Fig. 260) with three brown bands extending width of wing: a pale, indistinct band behind apex of submarginal and base of marginal vein, one dark band beginning behind stigmal vein and a second dark band in apical third of wing, the bands separated by three, narrower white areas, including wing apex. Hind wing with apical third of membrane brownish.

Head with fine engraved reticulation, isodiametric on vertex and face medially, more elongate on face laterally, gena, and occiput; face laterally with 9 or 10 setae between subantennal grooves and preoccipital sutures and medially with 2 setae at lower level of toruli; vertex with 2 setae between hind ocelli and 2 well in front of them; occiput with 4 setae above foramen; gena with 15–20 setae. Antenna with length/width measurements (from holotype) and number of longitudinal sensilla (in parentheses) as follows: scape 132/61, pedicel 77/38, funicle segments 1–6 175/28, 275/44 (1), 145/64 (1), 87/74 (2), 82/89 (2), 66/95 (2), entire clava 241/35 (6); the longitudinal sensilla short, only present in apical part of segment.

Mesosoma with sculpture on pronotum, mescutum and axilla distinct, the cells isodiametric to slightly elongate; scutellum and propodeum with much less distinct, slightly elongate sculpture.

Wings. Fore wing measurements (from holotype): length 1304, width 306, longest marginal setae 31, venation length 518; hind wing length 783, width 122, longest marginal setae 116, venation length 452.

Legs. Relative proportion of segments (from holotype):

Fore leg: coxa 189, trochanter 86, femur 297, tibia 309, entire tarsus 376, tarsomeres 1–4 167, 91, 61, 58. Middle leg: coxa 164, trochanter 86, femur 297, tibia 481, entire tarsus 335, tarsomeres 1–4 137, 80, 61, 49. Hind leg: coxa 239, trochanter 110, femur 380, tibia 578, entire tarsus 365, tarsomeres 1–4 163, 91, 62, 50.

Metasoma. Relative lengths of gastral terga 1–6 (dorsally along midline, from a critical point dried specimen) 8, 10, 9, 17, 12, 9; terga submedially with longidudinal striations. Ovipositor about 1.1 x as long as metatibia.

Male. Similar to female. Antenna with scape and pedicel orange brown except narrowly along dorsal margin, and flagellum uniformly dark brown; each flagellar segment about 4 x as long as wide, and with about 10 longitudinal sensilla. Genitalia as in generic description.

Hosts. Unknown.

Derivation of species name. Latin for bicoloured, referring to the colour pattern of the antenna, wings, legs and metasoma, each of which has a white area (clear area on the wings).
