Ozoliarus rotundistylus Löcker   , sp. nov.

( Figs 16A–D, 39C–I)

Type material

Holotype, ♂, AUSTRALIA, Qld: 6 km N Taroom , 25.36S 149.46E, 200 m, 1.x.1991 (G. Daniels) ( QM QMT123834, originally UQIC) GoogleMaps   , Paratype, AUSTRALIA, Qld: 1 ♂, same data as holotype, 2.x.1992 ( UQIC) GoogleMaps   .

Etymology

The Latin term ‘rotundus’ means ‘round’. Named after the rounded tip of the genital styles.

Colour

Body dark brown to black, carinae paler, frons lateral with a white mark; legs light to dark brown; forewing hyaline colourless with brown marks along crossveins and sometimes on apex of wing, veins dark brown, tubercles concolorous with veins, pterostigma dark brown; abdominal sternites dark brown..

Morphology

Body length: ♂ 5.4–5.9 mm.

Head: Vertex (total length) 1.6–1.9 times longer than wide; basal emargination acutely angled or rectangular. Postclypeus with well­developed median carina. Rostrum surpassing hind coxae.

Thorax: Hind margin of pronotum obtusely angled. Mesonotum with well­developed carinae. Forewing 3.2–3.6 times longer than wide; costa with or without 1 tubercle; 9 apical cells.

Male genitalia: Anal tube as in Figs 39C–E; pygophore and genital styles as in Figs 39F–G. Aedeagus ( Figs 39H–I): as in Oz. cuspidistylus   , except for spine (a) of phallotheca more slender and parallel; and spine (A) of flagellum missing.

pitta   group

These seven species share the following character states and are therefore grouped together as the pitta   group: Arrangement of spines on the aedeagus, i.e., phallotheca ventrally with a spine with a serrated tip (not present in Oz. golgolensis   ) and right laterally with an upwards curved (mostly u­shaped) spine.
