Material examined. Holotype ♂, COLOMBIA: Valle de Cauca: PNN Farallones de Cali: Anchicaya , 3.43ºN, 76.80ºW, 21.xi–19.xii.2000, Malaise trap, 900m, S. Sarria col. ( IAVH) [LACM ENT 165165].GoogleMaps 

Description. Male. Body length 2 mm. Head. Frons brown, sparsely setulose, with well-defined median furrow. Flagellomere 1 light brown, conical-elongate, with abruptly thinner elongation two times longer than base. Arista apical, short. Palpus light brown; gena with two setae. Thorax. Scutum, scutellum, and pleural regions brown; anepisternum bare. Legs light brown, fore and midtibiae and tarsi lighter. Base of forefemur with a triangular ventral projection bearing short dark setulae posteriorly and long thick setae along anteroventral margin ( Fig. 26GView FIGURE 26). Forefemur with ventral row of thin setae. Foretibia with three dorsal setae and anterodorsal row of strong setulae. Foremetatarsus with anterior apparently sculptured excavation, short setulae at base of excavation, row of setulae on ventral margin of excavation, and without anteroapical process, but with a strong seta in its place ( Fig. 9IView FIGURE 9). Foretarsomeres 2 and 3 short. Foremetatarsus ratio 0.25. Posterior face of hind femur with narrow basoventral band of tiny blunt setulae ( Fig. 22KView FIGURE 22). Hind femur height/length ratio, 0.37. Hind tibia with one dorsal seta in basal half. Wing ( Fig. 16CView FIGURE 16). Costa swollen, 0.47 of the wing length; R 2+3 absent; M 1 concave, curved posteriorly at apex; M 2 approximately concave, CuA 1 -M 2 /M 2 -M 1 ratio 1.53; CuA 1 sinuous. Halter dark brown at base, light brown at apex.

Abdomen. Tergites brown, with shining pubescence. Hypopygium light brown ( Fig. 25PView FIGURE 25), left epandrial process with only one discernible process: a subepandrial wall extending from the hypoproct to its apex. Margin of right lobe of hypandrium without lateral projection. Hypoproct with one seta.

Distribution. Known from a single low-elevation site in Colombia.

Etymology. Name derived from the Greek roots systenos (running or tapering to a point) and podos (foot), referring to the base of forefemur with a triangular ventral projection.
