Type material

Holotype, ♂ (examined), INDONESIA: Larat Island , x.1907 (F. Muir) ( BPBM)   ; Paratypes, INDONESIA: 1 ♂, 2 ♀ (examined), same data as holotype   .

Other material examined AUSTRALIA: NT (31 ♂, 9 ♀), Qld (7 ♂, 2 ♀)   .

Morphology

Body length: ♂ 5.2–6.4 mm, ♀ 6.4–7.3 mm.

Head: Vertex (total length) 2.9–3.9 times longer than wide; basal emargination acutely angled or rectangular. Postclypeus with well­developed median carina. Rostrum reaching or not reaching hind coxae.

Thorax: Hind margin of pronotum obtusely angled. Mesonotum with evanescent or well­developed carinae. Forewing 3.0–3.2 times longer than wide; costa without tubercles; 9 apical cells.

Male genitalia: Anal tube in caudal view with a triangular process as in Figs 34E–G; pygophore and genital styles as in Figs 34C–D. Aedeagus ( Figs 34A–B): Phallotheca with a long spine (a) arising right lateral near apex, passing phallotheca ventrally, crossing over to dorsal side apically; a short spine (b); and two long spines (c, d) dorsal. Flagellum membranous, unarmed.

Remarks

In the original description Muir (1924) states that the type series consists of 3 males and 4 females. However, we can only confirm the presence of 2 males and 2 females in the collection of the BPBM.

Van Stalle (1991) makes the following comment in the remarks section of the species description of O. busoensis   , “The reference “Type Nr 1092” in the original description is considered as a holotype designation.”
