Diagnosis. Apex of wing beyond r-m crossvein tinted brown (as in Fig. 6View FIGURES 2 – 7. 2); posterior margin of hind coxa with a few setae on the posterolateral corner ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 2 – 7. 2); male eye facets enlarged (as in Fig. 19View FIGURES 19 – 20. 19); ventral surface of costa setulose to junction of R 1.

Distribution. Specimens were examined from Bahamas, Cuba and Trinidad ( USNM) and Dominican Republic ( CNMH). Dear (1985) listed it from Bahamas, Cuba and Trinidad.

Discussion. Shannon (1926) and Hall (1948) believed there are two species of this genus in the region. Dear (1985) concluded there is only one and authors claiming there are two species were relying on variable characters as part of intraspecific variation.
