Asynapta panzari  sp. n.

( Fig. 4View FIGURE 4 A –B)

Diagnosis. Male genital structures are specific to Asynapta panzari  , as follows. The gonostylus is strongly tapered apically and slightly bent inwardly (Fig. A, ↓), and the gonocoxae have large, rounded, setose processes on either side of the ventral emargination (Fig. A, ↓). The parameres are broad, curved, laterally sulcate, and largely overlapping each other (Fig. B, ↓), which altogether makes for a unique structure that, however, is difficult to interpret in specimens mounted on slide.

Other male characters. Body size 1.4 mm. Head. Eye bridge 8–9 ommatidia long. Flagellomeres 16. Neck of fourth flagellomere as long as node; node with 1 circumfilum as typical in Asynapta ( Jaschhof & Jaschhof 2013)  . Palpus broken behind second segment. Thorax. Metepisternum setose. Wing. M absent. Legs. Claws and empodia missing in specimen available for study. Terminalia ( Fig. 4View FIGURE 4 A –B). Ventral emargination of gonocoxae clearly outlined, semicircular (Fig. A). Common shaft of gonocoxal apodemes bilobed anteriorly (Fig. A). Aedeagus head large, extending laterally beyond parameres (Fig. B). Parameres flexible, apices pointing posterolaterally (Fig. B, ↓).

Etymology. This species is named after Kenneth Panzar, Dörby, Öland.

Holotype. Male (CEC 68), Sweden, Södermanland, Haninge, Tyresta, Urskogsslingan, Scots pine forest, 8 June – 2 July 2003, Malaise trap, Swedish Malaise Trap Project (trap 3, collecting event 84) (in NHRS).
