Description

Male (Fig. 5). Length 10-12 mm. Head (Fig. 5b): vertex 1/3 of head width; three pairs of reclinate upper orbital setae; ocellar setae arising behind anterior ocellus; ocellar triangle slightly gold-tinged compared to rest of fronto-orbital plate; fronto-orbital plate shiny silver and setulose, setulae not extending below lowest frontal seta; parafacial silver and bare; eye densely haired; facial ridge bare; pedicel black, with orange at base where it joins the postpedicel, remainder concolorous with postpedicel; arista orange basally, very minutely pubescent, distinctly thickened on basal 1/3-1/4; palpus dark brown and haired basally, apically orange and bare. Thorax (Fig. 5a, c): silver grey tomentose dorsally and laterally; four thin dorsal vittae, outermost two broken across suture, innermost pair unbroken, reaching just beyond 1st postsutural dorsocentral seta; postpronotum with 4-5 setae arranged in a triangle; chaetotaxy: acrostichal setae 3-4:3; dorsocentral setae 3-4:3; intra-alar setae 3:3; supra-alar setae 2:3; three katepisternal setae; lateral scutellar setae subequal in length to basal scutellar setae; subapical scutellar setae strongest and longest of marginal scutellar setae, strongly divergent; apical scutellar setae subequal to lateral scutellar setae 2/3 length of subapical scutellar setae, crossed apically; one pair of discal scutellar setae set more widely set than apical scutellar setae but more narrowly than subapical scutellar setae; scutellum very slightly darkened across basal 20%, remainder concolorous with scutum. Legs (Fig. 5c): yellow in ground colour with dense covering of black hairs, making them appear darker; fore femur with dense silver tomentum on posterodorsal surface; hind coxa bare. Wing (Fig. 5a): pale translucent, slightly infuscate; vein R4+5 with two setulae at base. Abdomen (Fig. 5a, c): ground colour black; mid-dorsal depression on ST1+2 not reaching hind margin; median marginal setae present on ST1+2 and T3; a complete row of marginal setae present on T4; discal setae only on T5; sex patch covering ventral surfaces of T4-T5; distinct tomentose bands along anterior 2/3 of T3 and T4, broken medially by a dorsocentral stripe; T5 with silver tomentum covering anterior 1/3, apparent only laterally but appearing as if it covers entire tergite under certain angles of light. Terminalia (Fig. 5d, e, f): anterior plate of sternite 5 (Fig. 5f) with broadly rounded edge, with a very slight, almost absent medial depression; posterior edge with a deeply excavated median cleft, smoothly U-shaped, margins covered in dense tomentum; unsclerotised "window" anterior to median cleft umbonate, 2X as wide as median cleft. Posterior lobes of sternite rounded apically, with 4-6 strong setae surrounded by many shorter, weaker setulae; anterior plate of sternite 2X as long as length of posterior lobes. Cerci in posterior view (Fig. 5d) long, slender and digitiform, longer than surstyli; blunt and rounded at apex, completely separate medially; densely setulose along basal 2/3 dorsally, setulose ventrally along entire length (visible in lateral view) ; in lateral view (Fig. 5e) with a slight downward curve apically. Surstylus in lateral view almost parallel-sided along its length, with a rounded apex, giving the whole structure a spatulate appearance; when viewed dorsally the surstyli appearing to converge slightly. Pregonite broad and well-developed, tapering to a rounded, slightly blunted apex; devoid of setulae. Postgonite narrow up to 1/3, as wide as pregonite, sharply pointed and curved at apex, scythe-like and subequal in length to pregonite. Epiphallus well-developed and apically hooked. Distiphallus rectangular in shape, with a slender median longitudinal sclerotised reinforcement on its posterior surface and a broad, anterolateral, sclerotised acrophallus, joining on both sides of anterior surface near apex.

Female. Length: 8-11 mm. As male, differing only by the presence of two pairs of proclinate orbital setae.

Diagnosis

Hyphantrophaga angustata   (van der Wulp) can be distinguished from all other Hyphantrophaga   species by the following combination of traits: pedicel orange at base, palpus reddish-orange apically, black basally, three katepisternal setae, legs yellow with dense tomentum making them appear black, hind coxa bare, abdominal ground colour black, abdomen with silver tomentum, T5 with silver tomentum ventrolaterally, median marginal setae present on ST1+2.

Distribution

From south-western USA south to Costa Rica; Costa Rica, ACG, Guanacaste Province, 295-325 m elevation.

Ecology

Within ACG inventory, Hyphantrophaga angustata   (van der Wulp) has been reared 10 times from two species of Lepidoptera   in the family Thyrididae   , Dysodia speculifera   (Sepp, 1852) and Dysodia immargo   Dyar, 1913, in dry forest and dry-rain lowland intergrade.
