Loboscelidia atra Krombein 

Loboscelidia atra  Krombein 1983: 52. Holotype male; Sri Lanka: Sabaragamuwa Prov., Ratnapura Dist., Sinharaja Jungle (USNM).

Material studied.

Only the holotype was seen.


This is one of several species with a well-developed, complete scrobal sulcus. A combination of features will separate Loboscelidia atra  from these other species, including the rectangular frontal projection (in lateral view), scape more than 3 × as long as broad, cu-a vein less than half as long as R, Rs twice as long as R, and metanotum half as long as the scutellum.
