Redescription. Male. Body length, 1.8–2.0 mm. Head. Frons dark brown, sparsely setulose, with welldefined median furrow. Flagellomere 1 brown, pubescent, conical to conical-elongate. Arista apical, pubescent, longer than flagellomere 1. Palpus light brown; two genal setae. Thorax. Scutum, scutellum and pleural regions brown; anepisternum setulose dorsally. Legs yellowish-brown. Foretibia with two to three dorsal setae and anterodorsal row of strong setulae. Foremetatarsus with anteroapical setulose process, anterior excavation, long seta on excavation base and seta on the base of the anteroapical process ( Fig. 146View FIGURES 139 – 157). Hind femur not swollen (height/ length ratio, 0.33), with posteroventral group of tiny blunt setulae with semicircular distribution, tapering toward ventral margin—dorsal setulae thicker ( Figs. 257View FIGURES 252 – 257). Hind tibia with one dorsal seta. Wing ( Fig. 198View FIGURES 191 – 202). Costa swollen, 0.4 of wing length; M1 almost entirely straight, curved anteriorly at apex; M2 with two sinuousities along its length, antero-posterior distance between M2 and CuA1 at CuA1 apex about 0.6 times the distance between M1 and M2 at same level; CuA1 concave. Halter white. Abdomen. Tergites dark brown, with lighter posterior band. Hypopygium light brown ( Figs. 27–30View FIGURES 27 – 30). Epandrium covered with microtrichia mostly dorsally, proximal lateral areas bare; epandrial dorsal and left sutures present. Left epandrial process dorsally setose, subepandrial transversal elevation connected to process bearing six long setae. Right epandrial projection with subepandrial group of setulae. Hypoproct with two to three setae. Hypandrium without projections.

Geographical distribution. Mexico to Colombia.
