DIAGNOSIS. — This species is different from all other species of Indian Phanuromyia  in having a reticulate mesoscutellum.

ETYMOLOGY. — This species is named ‘reticulata’ highlighting the reticulate sculpture of the mesoscutellum. The name is treated as an adjective.

DESCRIPTION

Measurement

Body length = 0.96 mm; (m = 0.98 [0.91 to 1.19] mm, SD=0.08, n= 8).

Colour

Head and mesosoma black; metasoma golden yellow; legs yellow brown except brown fore coxae; eyes black; radicle, A1, A5-A7 yellowish brown, remaining antennomeres blackish brown; mandibles reddish brown ( Fig. 3AView FIG).

Head ( Fig. 3A, B, D, EView FIG)

FCI =1.31; LCI =1.40; IOS subequal to eye length; entire frons and gena coriaceous reticulate; three vertical striae arise on either side of toruli and converge in the middle of frons; vertex finely reticulate, sparsely setose; eyes (L: W= 17.4: 16.3) large, bare; POL: LOL in ratio of 15.7: 7.6; lateral ocelli contiguous with orbits; hyperoccipital carina and preoccipital area indistinct; occiput reticulate.

Mesosoma ( Fig. 3A, C, EView FIG)

Mesoscutum (L: W = 18.9: 26.6) finely reticulate, reticulations postero-medially longer than wide; lateral pronotal area predominantly reticulate; mesopleuron reticulate; mesopleural depression vertically striate; prespecular sulcus and mesepime- ral sulci not foveate; sternaulus not indicated; mesopleural pit distinct; mesopleural carina distinct; metapleuron coarsely sculptured with a distinct metapleural pit; scutoscutellar sulcus narrow, foveate only laterally; mesoscutellum (L: W=7.5: 2.0) semicircular, finely reticulate, posterior margin uniformly rounded; posterior mesoscutellar sulcus deeply foveate; metascutellum rectangular, smooth with foveae on anterior margin; metanotal trough smooth; lateral propodeal area smooth; fore wing (L: W= 62.7: 16.8) and hind wing (L: W=56.0: 8.0) with dense microtrichia; length of fore wing marginal cilia 0.25 × width of wing; hind wing marginal cilia subequal to width of wing.

Metasoma ( Fig. 3AView FIG)

(L: W= 29.8: 22.6); T1 foveate anteromedially, with a sharp carina laterad extending the entire length of tergite, remain- der smooth; T1 with 2 lateral setae; T2 with antero-medial basal foveae, followed by weak striae some of which extend medially up to half the length of tergite, remainder smooth; length and width of tergites T1: T 2 in ratio of 2.9: 10.2, 27.0: 18.9, respectively; ovipositor visible, straight.

Male ( Fig. 4AView FIG)

Body length = 0.94 mm; male similar to female except for the following characters: metasoma dark brown with T1 and anterior T2 orangish brown; mesoscutellum weakly reticulate and medially almost smooth.
