Coniceromyia aurantia Kung & Brown  

( Figs. 23–26 View FIGURES 23 – 26 , 145 View FIGURES 139 – 157 , 197 View FIGURES 191 – 202 , 255–256 View FIGURES 252 – 257 , 318 View FIGURES 318 – 324 )

Coniceromyia aurantia Kung & Brown, 2000a: 2   , fig. 2.

Diagnosis (male). Wing vein M1 swollen, almost straight; light maculation at wing apical three fifths ( Fig. 197 View FIGURES 191 – 202 ); circular orange maculation on the anterior face of forefemur.

Material examined. Holotype ♂, PERU: Madre de Dios: Manu N.P.: Cocha Cashu Station , 23–30.viii.1986, Malaise trap, 380m, D. Darling col. ( MUSM)   . Paratypes: 1♂, same data but deposited at LACM   ; 1♂, same data but 18–22.viii.1986 ( LACM)   ; 1♂, same data but 31.viii –1.ix.1986 ( LACM).  

Hypopygium description ( Figs. 23–26 View FIGURES 23 – 26 ). Hypopygium light brown. Epandrium covered with microtrichia mostly dorsally, proximal lateral areas bare; dorsal and left sutures of the epandrium present. Left epandrial process setose on apical half, with subepandrial setose elevation and medially directed lobe near apex. Right epandrial projection with subepandrial group of setulae. Hypoproct with two setae. Hypandrial right lobe apically bilobed.

Geographical distribution. Peru.

Comments. The hypopygium morphology of Coniceromyia aurantia   seems to suggest its close relationship to C. arizonensis   , rather than to other species with maculated wing. The analysis of other characters suggests that the presence of wing maculae apparently has at least three independent origins in Coniceromyia   : in C. bilineata   and its related species, in C. franciscana   and its related species, and in C. aurantia   .
