Coniceromyia disparivena Borgmeier  

( Figs. 72–77 View FIGURES 72 – 77 , 162 View FIGURES 158 – 173 , 214 View FIGURES 203 – 214 , 276 View FIGURES 273 – 276 )

Coniceromyia disparivena Borgmeier, 1950: 287   , textfig. 12, 17, plate xvii, fig. 1. Holotype ♂, Brazil, Santa Catarina, Nova Teutônia (MZSP; not examined).

Diagnosis (male). Wing veins M1 and M2 close to each other, almost parallel; hind femur swollen. These features are also diagnostic for C. apechoneura Ament & Amorim   , from which C. disparivena   can be differentiated by its foretibia without many strong setae on its apical half.

Material examined. Paratypes: BRAZIL: 1♂, Santa Catarina: Nova Teutônia, iii.1950, F. Plaumann col. (no further data) ( MZSP)   ; 1♂, BRAZIL: Paraná: Rio Negro , 5.vii.1925 (in alcohol, no further data) ( MZSP)   . Additional material: BRAZIL: 7♂, Santa Catarina: Nova Teutônia : 27º11’S, 52º23’W, (1♂, 2.vi.1940; 2♂, viii.1945; 1♂, 1956; 1♂, 1958, 2♂ no date on label), F. Plaumann col. ( MZSP) GoogleMaps   ; 1♂, ARGENTINA: Misiones: Loreto: Ruinas Jesuíticas , 27.77ºS, 57.28ºW, 21–24.viii.2000, Malaise trap, P. Fildago col. ( LACM) GoogleMaps   .

Hypopygium description. Hypopygium brown ( Figs. 72–77 View FIGURES 72 – 77 ). Epandrium extensively covered with microtrichia, with only small proximal lateral areas bare; epandrium dorsal and left sutures present. Left epandrial process dorsally setose, with medial setose lobe curved subepandrially ( Figs. 73 and 75 View FIGURES 72 – 77 , black arrow) and apical setulose fold ( Figs. 73 and 75 View FIGURES 72 – 77 , white arrow). Right epandrial projection with subepandrial group of setulae. Hypoproct with two setae. Right lobe of hypandrium with lateral projection.

Geographical distribution. Southern Brazil and northeastern Argentina.

Comments. Coniceromyia disparivena   is morphologically very similar to C. apechoneura Ament & Amorim   , sharing with this species the wide separation between M2 and CuA1 (probably an apomorphic condition) and a nearly identical hypopygium morphology.
