Etymology: Named for the type locality “Tatumbia Montana” in Honduras (noun in apposition).

Diagnosis: Recognized by the mid-sized body length (1.51 mm), elongate oval outline of forewings, inflated tip of scutellum (black arrow) ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ), vesica relatively thick and straight with acute tip, not reaching pygophore margin, and without anophoric process ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ).

Description: Male: Total body length 1.51 mm; length from posterior margin of pronotum to posterior wing margin 1.27 mm; greatest width across pronotum 0.62 mm; greatest width across forewings 0.88 mm. General coloration: mix of pale and darker brown or reddish brown. Vestiture: Dorsum with dense setae, setae long; setae on posterior margin of forewing extremely long. Structure: Head: Eye about one third as high as head; muscle scars large. Thorax: Anterior pronotal margin concave, posterior margin slightly concave; pits on pronotum small, evenly distributed; scutellum in dorsal view abruptly narrowed to tip, tip rounded. Forewing: With outline broad anteriorly; membrane contributing about one third of forewing length, posterior distal margin squarish, vein-tracing areoles on proximal part of wing absent; C+Sc broad, wider at widest part of wing; distal process of R pronounced; An1 wing organ on corium inflated, elongate, with median notch, without notch articulating with claval process; rc1 about 3 times as long as wide, much wider anteriorly; rc about 4 times as long as wide; tc about 3 times as long as wide; part of An1 and Cu forming posterodistal margin of tc of similar width as other veins; distal margin of rc1, rc, and tc cells double s-shaped; rc2–3 trapezoidal; cub almost reaching wing margin; dc1 with basal portion relatively wide and short. Legs: Claws long. Genitalia ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 ): Pygophore without lobe on right side; vesica with between half and one loop, not reaching right pygophore margin, thick at midpoint, tapering to acute tip, close to apex fairly straight; anophoric ridge without process; right paramere curved, broad throughout, basal process broad; left paramere straight, tapering, basal process narrow.

Female: As in male and generic description.
