Gonatocerus (Cosmocomoidea) rogersi Matthews, 1986  

( Figs 304–308 View FIGURES 304 – 306 View FIGURES 307, 308 )

Gonatocerus rogersi Matthews 1986: 22   (member of the ater   species group). Type locality: Awbridge, Hampshire Co., England, UK.

Gonatocerus rogersi Matthews   : Pricop 2010 b: 113 (mentioned as valid species).

Type material examined. Holotype female [ BMNH] on slide ( Fig. 304 View FIGURES 304 – 306 ) labeled: 1. “ Holotype Ƥ Gonatocerus rogersi   sp. n. det. Matthews 1984 Holotype [in red circle]”; 2. “ ENGLAND: HANTS Awbridge v. 1981 C. Vardy 29 NOV 1983 M 1034 /”. The holotype is in good condition, nicely dissected under 5 coverslips.

Distribution. PALAEARCTIC: UK ( England).

Redescription. FEMALE. Body color is difficult to assess because the specimen had been well cleared before being slide-mounted ( Matthews 1986), most likely head and mesosoma brown or dark brown and gaster brown.

Antenna ( Fig. 305 View FIGURES 304 – 306 ) with radicle 0.25 × total length of scape, rest of scape 3.5 × as long as wide; pedicel longer than F 1; F 1 the shortest funicle segment, F 3 a little longer than F 2 and about as long as F 4, F 5 the longest funicle segment, F 6 and F 7 subequal and slightly longer than F 8; mps on F 4 (0 or 1), F 5 (2), F 6 (1), F 7 (1 or 2), and F 8 (2); clava with 8 mps, about 3.8 × as long as wide, slightly longer than combined length of F 6 –F 8.

Mesosoma ( Fig. 306 View FIGURES 304 – 306 ) shorter than metasoma. Propodeum with fine, parallel submedian carinae extending almost to anterior margin of propodeum and slightly curving towards each other there but not connecting. Fore wing ( Fig. 307 View FIGURES 307, 308 ) about 4.1 × as long as wide; longest marginal seta 0.34–0.35 × maximum wing width; disc notably infumate, bare behind submarginal and marginal veins except for 3 setae behind marginal vein and densely setose elsewhere. Hind wing ( Fig. 307 View FIGURES 307, 308 ) about 25 × as long as wide; disc slightly infumate; longest marginal seta 3.1 × maximum wing width.

Metasoma ( Fig. 308 View FIGURES 307, 308 ). Ovipositor occupying about 0.6 × length of gaster, not exserted beyond its apex, about 1.0× as long as mesotibia.

Measurements (µm). Mesosoma 351; petiole: 21; gaster 503; ovipositor 303. Antenna: radicle 39; rest of scape 116; pedicel 55; F 1 30; F 2 45; F 3 52; F 4 52 (55); F 5 61; F 6 55; F 7 55; F 8 51; clava 176. Fore wing 922: 226; longest marginal seta 78. Hind wing 713: 29; longest marginal seta 90.

MALE. Unknown.

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus rogersi   , known from the female holotype only, is characterized by a narrow fore wing (about 4.1 × as long as wide) with a notably infuscate disc ( Fig. 307 View FIGURES 307, 308 ).
