Description

Male (Fig. 22). Length: 4-7 mm. Head (Fig. 22b): vertex 1/5 of head width; two reclinate upper orbital setae; ocellar setae arising beside anterior ocellus; ocellar triangle gold, concolorous with fronto-orbital plate; fronto-orbital plate gold over 90% of surface, sparsely setulose, setulae not extending below lowest frontal seta; parafacial shiny silver and bare; facial ridge bare; pedicel black, concolorous with postpedicel; arista black, very minutely pubescent, distinctly thickened on basal 1/3-1/4; palpus yellow and haired. Thorax (Fig. 22a, c): gold tomentose dorsally, grey tomentose laterally; four prominent dorsal vittae, outermost two broken across suture, innermost pair unbroken across suture, reaching 3rd postsutural dorsocentral seta; postpronotum with 3-4 setae arranged in a triangle; chaetotaxy: acrostichal setae 3:3; dorsocentral setae 3:4; intra-alar setae 2:3; supra-alar setae 2:3; three katepisternal setae, basal seta extremely weak and anterior to suture; lateral scutellar setae subequal in length to apical setae, curving inwards medially; lateral scutellar setae subequal in length to basal setae; subapical setae strongest and longest of marginal scutellar setae, these not strongly divergent; apical scutellar setae short and relatively weak, erect and crossed midway; one pair of discal scutellar setae; scutellum with a darkened crescent across basal 30%, remainder concolorous with scutum. Legs (Fig. 22c): black throughout; hind coxa setose. Wing (Fig. 22a): pale grey translucent, slightly infuscate, veins dark amber brown; vein R4+5 with two setulae at base. Abdomen (Fig. 22a, c): ground colour black; mid-dorsal depression on ST1+2 reaching hind margin; abdominal tomentum present as gold bands spanning anterior 50% of T3-T4; T5 gold tomentose with black apex; median marginal setae present on ST1+2-T3; a complete row of marginal setae present on T4; discal setae present on T3-T5; sex patch absent. Terminalia (Fig. 22d, e, f): anterior margin of sternite 5 (Fig. 22f) with a slight curved medial depression, posterior edge with a deeply excavated median cleft, smoothly U-shaped; posterior lobes of sternite rounded apically and completely devoid of setae; apical plate shorter than posterior lobes. Unsclerotised "window" anterior to median cleft with central rectangular gap as wide as median cleft, branched on either side, with two thin arms reaching around base of posterior lobes. Cerci (Fig. 22d) in posterior view subrectangular and slightly shorter than surstyli, blunt and squared off towards apex, completely separate medially, diverging at tips; in lateral view (Fig. 22e) with a strong, almost 90 degree bend 1/3 along their length apically; densely setulose almost to apex dorsally, setulose ventrally along basal 2/3 (visible in lateral view). Surstylus in lateral view almost parallel-sided along its length, ending in a slightly downcurved apex, making the structure appear blade-like; surstylus appearing fused with epandrium; when viewed dorsally, surstyli appearing strongly divergent and wide open. Pregonite broad and well-developed, bent basally, apical 2/3 cinched, giving it a petiolate appearance, apically rounded, devoid of setulae. Postgonite elongate, slender, very slightly hooked at tip, subequal in length to pregonite. Distiphallus cone-shaped, apically flared, with a slender median longitudinal sclerotised reinforcement on its posterior surface and a broad, anterolateral, sclerotised acrophallus on each side, joining the plate of opposite side on anterior surface near apex; approximately two times as long as basiphallus.

Female. Length: 5-7 mm. As male, differing only by the presence of two pairs of proclinate orbital setae.

Diagnosis

Hyphantrophaga nigricauda   sp. n. can be distinguished from all other Hyphantrophaga   species by the following combination of traits: pedicel and arista concolorous, dark brown/black, four postsutural dorsocentral setae, four thoracic vittae, inner pair solid across suture, hind coxa setose, discal setae present on T3-T5 and T5 gold tomentose with a black apex.

Etymology

From the Latin adjective “nigrum” meaning black and the Latin noun "cauda" meaning tail, in reference to the apically black T5.

Distribution

Costa Rica, ACG, Alajuela and Guanacaste Provinces, 280-680 m elevation.

Ecology

Hyphantrophaga nigricauda   sp. n. has been reared 22 times from five species of Lepidoptera   in the families Geometridae   , ( Cyclomia disparilis   Schaus, 1911; Crambidae   : Pleuroptya   Solis02, Eulepte   Solis15 and Conchylodes platinalis   ( Guenée, 1854)); and Thyrididae   , ( Dysodia   Janzen10); in rain forest and dry-rain lowland intergrade.
