Description

Male (Fig. 10): 10-15 mm. Head (Fig. 10b): antenna, first flagellomere all black, except orange along upper margin, adjacent to pedicel; pedicel light brown; arista 1.5X as long as first flagellomere, dark brown and minutely pubescent; palpus yellow and haired; fronto-orbital plate, parafacial and gena silver pollinose; gena bearing few fine hairs along lower margin. Thorax (Fig. 10a, c): entirely gray pollinose; surfaces of dorsum of thorax and scutellum with conspicuous black hairs; sternopleura, hypopleura, pteropleura, and ventral surface of abdomen black pilose; 3 katepisternal bristles; 3 postsutural supra-alar bristles, 2nd postsutural supra-alar bristle 4X as long as 1st; postpronotum bearing fine black hairs and anepisternum with fine, yellow-white hairs; scutellum bearing 1 pair of nearly indistinct discal bristles, slightly thicker than scutellar hairs; anatergite bearing a small patch of black hairs; with 2-3 pairs of strong marginal bristles in addition to basal and subapical bristles; underside of scutellum bearing a tuft of black hairs near basal marginal bristle. Legs: femora reddish-brown ground color; tibiae yellow; coxae of a reddish color; tarsi all black. Wing: dark smoky brown translucent; major wing veins strongly infuscate. Abdomen (Fig. 10a): 1 pair of median marginal bristles on ST1+2, T3, T4 and T5; 2 pairs of median discal bristles on T3, T4 and T5; ground color of abdomen black, with silver pollen on basal half of T3, T4, and T5; dorsal surface of tergites not covered by silver pollen, rather bearing a brown pollinosity visible under the microscope, appearing glabrous to the naked eye; no pollen of any sort on ST1+2; underside of abdomen entirely covered in silver pollen, and black hairs. Terminalia (Fig. 10d, e, f): sternite 5 with two broad rectangular lobes; inner edges of lobes of sternite 5 of lobes covered in dense pollinosity, and haired marginally; sternite 5 with a narrow V-shaped median cleft, 0.43X length of sternite from lobe apex to base; cercus long, thin and sharply pointed; slightly curved when viewed laterally, with a slight upward hook at its tip; distinctly tapered, with apical section 1.6X as long as upper lobe; surstylus long and digitiform in lateral view, haired along its entire length, these hairs becoming thicker basally; tip of surstylus not lobed when viewed dorsally; surstylus inwardly curved, 1.1X as long as cercus.

Female (Fig. 11): 7-10 mm. As male, except wings smoky amber translucent, with slight infuscation around each wing vein.

Diagnosis

Uramya lativittata   can be distinguished from all other Neotropical species of Uramya   by the following combination of traits: dark brown to black antennae, 3 postsutural supra-alar bristles, underside of scutellum with a tuft of black hairs near basal bristle, 4-5 pairs of marginal scutellar bristles, and silver pollinosity on underside of abdomen.

Etymology

The species epithet is derived from a combination of the latin nouns " latus ", meaning side, and " vitta ", meaning band, in reference to its distinctive abdominal pattern.

Distribution

Costa Rica, ACG (Provs. Guanacaste and Alajuela), 280-700 m.

Ecology

Uramya lativittata   has been reared 23 times from large caterpillars belonging to the genera Norape   Walker, Megalopyge   Hübner, Podalia   Walker and Trosia   Hübner ( Megalopygidae   ) in a sample of 2,816 non-siblings from dry, rain and dry-rain intergrade forest.
