Gonatocerus (Lymaenon) cubensis Dozier, 1932  

( Figs 69–72 View FIGURES 69 – 72 )

Gonatocerus cubensis Dozier 1932: 83   . Type locality: near La Habana (Havana), reared at Port-au-Prince, Haiti ( Dozier 1932).

Gonatocerus (Gonatocerus) cubensis Dozier   : De Santis 1979: 365 (catalog). Gonatocerus cubensis Dozier   : Yoshimoto 1990: 40 (list).

Type material examined. Holotype female [ USNM] on slide labeled: 1. “ Gonatocerus   [ip] [ Ooctonus   – co] cubensis Dozier Reared   from citrus foliage received from Dr. Clausen Habana, Cuba, July 27–1931 H. L. Dozier”; 2. [red] “ Gonatocerus   [ Ooctonus   – co] cubensis Dozier   ♀ Holotype Type No. 65497 U.S. N.M.”. The holotype is complete, uncleared, mounted dorsoventrally.

Redescription. FEMALE. Head dark brown, mesosoma mostly light brown except mesoscutum brown anteriorly, gaster light brown basally, distal gastral terga brownish; antenna brown (scape and pedicel slightly lighter than flagellum); legs mostly light brown.

Antenna ( Fig. 69 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ) with radicle about 0.3x total length of scape; pedicel longer than F1; F1–F4 short, subequal (F2 a little shorter and F4 a little longer), F5 and F6 shorter and narrower than F7 or F8; mps only on F7 (2) and F8 (2); clava 3.8x as long as wide, a little shorter than combined length of F5–F8, number of mps uncertain (mps difficult to see).

Mesosoma as in Figs 70, 71 View FIGURES 69 – 72 . Forewing ( Fig. 72 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ) 3.2–3.3x as long as wide [however, both wings mounted at an angle, so they appear narrower]; longest marginal seta about 0.33x maximum wing width. Forewing disc hyaline, bare behind submarginal vein, setose behind and beyond marginal vein. Hind wing ( Fig. 72 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ) 22x as long as wide; disc hyaline, bare except for rows of setae along margins and a few setae at apex; longest marginal seta 2.9x maximum wing width.

Metasoma ( Fig. 70 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ). Ovipositor 0.75x length of gaster, not exserted beyond its apex; ovipositor length: mesotibia length ratio 1.2:1.

Measurements (µm). Body: 806; head: 154; mesosoma 303; petiole 21; gaster 333; ovipositor 248. Antenna: radicle 51; rest of scape 97; pedicel 45; F1 26; F2 23; F3 27; F4 30; F5 39; F6 38; F7 45; F8 43; clava 152. Forewing 670:206; longest marginal seta 76. Hind wing 530:24; longest marginal seta 70.

MALE. Unknown.

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus (Lymaenon) cubensis   , known only from the female holotype, is characterized by its slender antenna ( Fig. 69 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ) with mps only on F7 and F8, and also by its generally light brown mesosoma ( Fig. 70 View FIGURES 69 – 72 ). It is very similar to G. (Lymaenon) flaviventris Dozier   from Haiti, whose mesosoma is mostly dark brown ( Figs 73, 75 View FIGURES 74 – 76 ).

Distribution. NEOTROPICAL: Cuba.
