(Figs. 105–107, 322, Map 20 View MAP 20 )

Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera notae   is most similar to G. lanae   but differs from the latter by having abdominal sex scales between terga 2–3 in male, and a broader valval cucullus.

Description.— Head: Scales on vertex and frontoclypeus grayish brown tipped with pale grayish brown; outer surface of labial palpus brown intermixed with pale grayish­yellow scales to apical margin of segment II, inner surface pale grayish yellow intermixed with few brown scales; scape pale grayish brown intermixed with few brown scales, flagellum with alternating bands of brown and pale­brown scales; male 4 th flagellomere dorsally protuberant and curved, forming a shallow concavity opposite slightly excavated flagellomeres 5–6; concavity nearly closed by a few setiform scales on apex of protuberance of 4 th flagellomere; proboscis pale grayish brown.

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum pale grayish brown. Legs brown intermixed with pale brownish­yellow scales to apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres [some specimens with hindlegs pale brownish yellow with banding absent]. Forewing (Fig. 322): Length 6.5 –7.9 mm (n = 21), pale brownish yellow intermixed with few brown scales; cell with 2 large, brown spots, 1 near middle, 1 near distal end; one spot one CuP basal to midcell spot; marginal spots present or absent. Undersurface brown except, pale grayish­brown scales along costa. Hindwing: Pale gray intermixed sparsely with pale brownish­yellow scales.

Abdomen (Fig. 105): Male with 3 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 106–107): Uncus elongate, wide at base, broadly constricted near midlength, broadly rounded apically, apex narrowly rounded and setose; gnathos setose, protuberant, narrow throughout length, upturned apically; tegumen slightly widened basally, dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent, fusing medially, gradually widening at constriction, beneath base of uncus; costa of valva broadly sloped downwards from a shallow depression slightly beyond a slanted, basal digitate process to apical furca; furca falcate; sacculus twisted apically, constricting valva slightly before midlength, widening distoventrally, forming an elongate and broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose; vesica of aedeagus sparsely denticulate, bearing a stout, crescent­shaped, apical cornutus; cornutus slightly shortened on one side, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia: Unknown.

Distribution ( Map 20 View MAP 20 ): Glyphidocera notae   is known from a single locality in northwestern Costa Rica along the Cordillera de Guanacaste.

Etymology: The species epithet notae   is derived from the Latin “nota,” meaning mark.
