Poeciloterpa unicolor Lallemand, 1922  

(Figs 138–147)

Poeciloterpa nigrilimbata (sic) var. unicolor Lallemand, 1922: 276   ; Schmidt 1927: 148; Lallemand 1949: 86, P1. 3, fig. 5.

The description provided by Lallemand (1922) was based mostly on the coloration. He provided an illustration of the tegmina in 1949. The type is a female and we provide here pictures of the habitus and labels (Figs 138–141). For the male terminalia the illustrations were made from a specimen that we identified as belonging to this species (Figs 142–146). Male terminalia (Fig. 142). In lateral view, pygofer (Fig. 143) dorsal margin longer than ventral margin, dorsal margin hump shape on third anterior then almost straight, right posterodorsal angle, posterior margin curving and making a round hump in middle. Subgenital plate (Fig. 144) gradually and regularly narrowing from its base to posterior tip which finish in a sharp angle oriented posterodorsally, lateral plate shaped like a narrow plectrum with apex oriented anteroventrally, intermediate plate present. Paramere (Fig. 145) with dorsal margin largely rounded in middle extending ventrally and making a fold before curving up to angled tip ventral margin largely rounded and finishing in angled tip, set of short setae along roundest dorsal area, oriented dorso-posteriorly and not reach- ing posterior tip of paramere. Aedeagus (Fig. 146) with dorsal margin regularly curved and finishing posteriorly in apical extension curling with pointed apex oriented ventroposteriorly, posterior protrusion vaguely cone-shaped, constricted at ¾ of its length last quarter coma shaped with tip pointing ventrally, posteroventral protrusion absent, ventral margin regularly curved except for drastic anterior break. Type material examined. Holotype ♀: [Los Banos P. I. Baker], [Lallemand Coll. B.M. 1955-832], [♀], [Type] ( NHM).
