Diagnosis. Lower gena with pale setae; basicosta brown; upper calypter light tan and lower calypter brown both sexes; presutural area mostly polished with microtomentose streak between acrostichal and dorsocentral setae and a whitish patch between dorsocentral seta and humeral callus; ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 7–15. 7–9 ). Known only from Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama ( Fig. 159 View FIGURE 159 ).

Description. Male. Frons 0.02 (0.015 –0.025 /4) of head width at narrowest; anterior eye facets are 1.53x larger than posterior facets (0.49mm vs. 0.32mm). The relative size of both anterior and posterior facets is almost identical for both sexes (see Table 1). Fronto-orbital plate silvery, plates touching midway up frons, frontal setae ascend to about midway up toward vertex; parafacial silvery except silvery-orange in anteroventral corner; gena with silvery-brown microtomentum, posteroventral corner with pale setae; pale setae extending up from postgena about one-fourth of way up gena; frontal vitta a small, dull orange triangle on the lower frons; antenna with brown pedicel, lower edge of pedicel and upper edge of first flagellomere red, remainder with gray microtomentum. Ocellar triangle small, black with short setae, anterior ocellus about 2x posterior ocelli. Supravibrissal setae extend about one-third of way up facial ridge. Intrapostocular area bright silvery, setae below and behind postocular row pale and weak; upper edge of occiput shining black, also a vertical black shining stripe midway, the remainder with pale microtomentum and pale setae. Color of thorax and abdomen blue, green or purple. Thoracic spiracles are medium sized and brown in color; legs are brown to reddish brown; proepisternal depression with pale setae; rim and disc of upper calypter light brown, lower calypter darker brown; veins and cells in wing base darkened, remainder of wing hyaline; basicosta brown, tegula dark brown; subcostal sclerite orange-brown with pubescence; dorsum of thorax shining, with little microtomentum ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 7–15. 7–9 ). Abdomen with all but anterolateral corners T4 and all of T5 polished. Surstylus medium length, parallel sided, cercus tapers to a slender point ( Figs. 57, 58 View FIGURES 55–58 ). Phallus, hypandrium, pre- and postgonite, ejaculatory sclerite, and sternites as in 81, 82, 114–116, 132 respectively.

Female. Characters similar to males except frons 0.23 (0.23/4) of head width at narrowest; facets almost identical to males (anterior facets 0.51mm, posterior facets 0.31). The ovipositor and spermathecae as in Figs. 144 View FIGURES 143–146 , 156 View FIGURES 147–158 .
