Diagnosis

Ganomymar caslot   is a member of the caslot   species group. Females differ from the other species of this group, G. zuparkoi   , by the diagnostic features given in the key.

Etymology

The species epithet is a noun in apposition referring to CAS LOT [California Academy of Sciences, lot number] numbers on the specimens borrowed from CAS.

Description

Female (holotype)

COLOR. Head black except face dark brown, rest of body (as in the paratype, Fig. 1 View Fig ) mostly light brown, the mesosoma, except pronotum, slightly darker than pronotum and metasoma; appendages mostly light brown except clava white.

HEAD ( Fig. 2B View Fig ). Slightly wider than high, 1.2× as wide as mesosoma; face smooth, with fine, inconspicuous setae below toruli, the latter raised above face surface and projecting slightly forward in dorsal view; vertex smooth and with 4 or 5 pairs of longer setae; occiput with 2 pairs of longer setae.

ANTENNA ( Fig. 2D View Fig ). Scape, excluding radicle, 3.1× as long as wide; pedicel smooth, longer than F1 and 1.8× as long as wide; F5 as long as F6, length to width ratios of funiculars: F1 = 2.3, F2 = 6.1; F3 = 4.2;

F4 = 2.4; F5 = 2.2; F6 = 2.6; clava 3.0× as long as wide, longer than combined length of 3 preceding flagellomeres.

MESOSOMA ( Fig. 2E View Fig ). Smooth, about 1.9 × as long as wide; pronotum with 2 pairs of strong setae at posterior margin; axillar seta 0.078 mm long, extending to campaniform sensilla; scutellum + frenum as long as mesoscutum, scutellum divided mediolongitudinally by a shallow groove; propodeum with a short median carina extending from posterior margin for about half length.

WINGS. Macropterous. Fore wing ( Fig. 3A View Fig ) 5.1 × as long as wide; marginal vein with 1 dorsal macrochaeta; disc notably infumate, densely setose beyond venation, the discal setae originating behind apex of submarginal vein, with numerous round ʻcells’ beyond venation particularly conspicuous up to about 0.6× length of wing and then gradually fading towards apex so not visible at wing apex; longest marginal seta 0.85× greatest width of wing, proximal fringe setae on anterior margin stronger than other fringe setae. Hind wing ( Fig. 3A View Fig ) about 35 × as long as wide; disc slightly infumate, with 2 rows of setae; longest marginal seta 2.4× greatest width of wing.

LEGS. All legs smooth, metacoxa with dense white setae.

METASOMA. Petiole ( Fig. 2F View Fig ) smooth, 3.4× as long as wide and slightly swollen medially, about as long as metacoxa. Ovipositor 0.8× length of gaster ( Fig. 2F View Fig ), not exserted beyond its apex, about as long as mesotibia and about 0.8× length of metatibia.

MEASUREMENTS (µm). Mesosoma = 492; mesoscutum = 154; scutellum = 154; petiole = 70; gaster = 455; ovipositor = 370. Radicle = 30; rest of scape = 179; pedicel = 66; F1 = 45; F2 = 148; F3 = 124; F4 = 88; F5 = 66; F6 = 66; clava = 267. Fore wing = 1396:276; venation = 326; longest marginal seta = 234. Hind wing = 940:27; longest marginal seta = 66. Mesotibia = 375; metatibia = 443.

Variations

Female (paratypes)

MEASUREMENTS. Body length (critical point dried specimens, Fig. 1 View Fig ) 1.125–1.24 mm. In slide-mounted specimens, scape, excluding radicle, 2.9–3.0× as long as wide, clava 3.0–3.5× as long as wide.

ANTENNA. Clava white to very light yellow.

MESOSOMA. Propodeum either without a distinct median carina or with a short median carina extending from posterior margin for about one-third to half length.

WINGS. Fore wing 4.9–5.0 × as long as wide, longest marginal seta about 0.8 × greatest width of fore wing.

GENITALIA. Ovipositor 0.8–0.9× length of metatibia.

Male (paratypes)

MEASUREMENTS. Body length (critical point dried specimens, Fig. 4 View Fig ) 1.125 –1.155 mm.

COLOR. Head ( Fig. 5A View Fig ) black except face dark brown, rest of body ( Fig. 3B View Fig ) mostly brown except pronotum and petiole light brown and apical gastral terga dark brown; scape and pedicel light brown, flagellum brown; legs mostly light brown except metatibia slightly darker.

MESOSOMA. Propodeum without a median carina.

WINGS. Fore wing ( Fig. 5D View Fig ) 1.568 mm long, 4.5 × as long as wide, its longest marginal seta 0.9 × greatest width of wing; hind wing ( Fig. 5D View Fig ) about 39 × as long as wide, its longest marginal seta 6.7× greatest width of wing.

ANTENNA ( Fig. 5C View Fig ). 2.585 mm long, with scape smooth, 2.4× as long as wide excluding radicle, and much shorter than any funicular; F2 the longest and F6 the shortest funiculars.

GENITALIA ( Fig. 5B View Fig ). 0.23 mm long.
