Description

Male (Fig. 12). Length: 7-9 mm. Head (Fig. 12b): vertex 1/5 of head width; two pairs of reclinate upper orbital setae; ocellar setae arising behind anterior ocellus; ocellar triangle silver/dull grey; fronto-orbital plate dull silver/grey and densely setulose throughout, setulae not extending beyond level of lowest frontal seta; parafacial concolorous with fronto-orbital plate and bare; eye densely haired; facial ridge bare; pedicel brownish-black (with only a slight light orange fringe at margin between pedicel and postpedicel), concolorous with postpedicel; arista brown, very minutely pubescent, distinctly thickened on basal 1/3-1/4; palpus dark grey/brown, haired apically, slender-digitiform. Thorax (Fig. 12a, c): dull brassy tomentose throughout; densely covered on all surfaces, with short black setulae interspersed amongst the setae; four thick dorsal vittae, outermost two broken across suture, innermost pair unbroken, reaching 2nd postsutural dorsocentral seta; postpronotum with 4-5 setae arranged in a triangle; chaetotaxy: acrostichal setae 3:3; dorsocentral setae 3:4; intra-alar setae 3:3; supra-alar setae 2:3; three katepisternal setae; basal scutellar setae subequal to subapical scutellar setae, curving inwards medially; lateral scutellar setae approximately 1/2 as long as subapical setae, curving inwards medially, parallel to basal scutellar setae; subapical scutellar setae straight and strongly divergent; apical scutellar setae subequal in length to lateral scutellar setae, crossed apically; one pair of discal scutellar setae set more narrowly than subapical setae; scutellum very lightly gold tomentose across apical 20%, remainder concolorous with scutum. Legs (Fig. 12c): brilliant yellow in ground colour, covered in dark setulae making them appear darker; fore femur with dense silver tomentum on posterodorsal surface; hind coxa bare. Wing (Fig. 12a): pale translucent, hyaline; vein R4+5 with only 2-3 setulae at base. Abdomen (Fig. 12a, c): ground colour yellowish-brown; middorsal depression on ST1+2 almost reaching hind margin; median marginal setae absent on ST1+2, present on T3; a complete row of marginal setae present on T4; discal setae only on T5; sex patch covering ventral surfaces of T4-T5; entire dorsal surface of tergites distinctly brassy tomentose; T5 with brassy tomentum throughout. Terminalia (Fig. 12d, e, f): sternite 5 (Fig. 12f) with a deeply excavated median cleft, squared-off wide V-shaped, margins covered in dense tomentum. Lateral lobes of sternite rounded triangular apically, 1-2 strong setae surrounded by many shorter, weaker setulae. Anterior plate of sternite 5 twice as long as apical lobes; unsclerotised window anterior to median cleft only slightly tri-lobed, with arms as wide as median cleft. Cerci in posterior view (Fig. 12d) narrow, subrectangular and slightly shorter than surstyli, ending in a rounded tip; completely separate medially, straight, divergent in apical 1/3; in lateral view weakly clubbed along anterior 1/3 and weakly curved at beginning of club; densely setulose dorsally up to a tapered tip, apparently bare ventrally (visible in lateral view). Surstylus in lateral view (Fig. 12e) almost parallel-sided along its length, with rounded apices, giving it a spatulate appearance; when viewed dorsally, surstyli appearing not divergent. Pregonite broad and well-developed, slightly bent; basal 2/3 slightly cinched, giving it a very slightly clubbed appearance; apically rounded with a few fine setulae along its edge. Postgonite elongate, equally wide along its length with a slight curve at tip, subequal in length to pregonite. Distiphallus rectangular with a very slight apical flare, a slender median longitudinal sclerotised reinforcement on its posterior surface and a broad, anterolateral, sclerotised acrophallus, joined as a plate on anterior surface near apex.

Female. Length: 5-7 mm. As male, differing only by the presence of two pairs of proclinate orbital setae.

Diagnosis

Hyphantrophaga edwinapui   sp. n. can be distinguished from all other Hyphantrophaga   species by the following combination of traits: three katepisternal setae, legs yellow, hind coxa bare, abdominal tergites entirely brassy tomentose and median marginal setae absent from ST1+2.

Etymology

Hyphantrophaga edwinapui   sp. n. is named in recognition of Edwin Jose Apu Fajardo's dedication and work in finding and rearing the ACG caterpillars that contained tachinid larvae.

Distribution

Costa Rica, ACG, Guanacaste Province, 270 m elevation.

Ecology

Hyphantrophaga edwinapui   sp. n. has been reared 22 times from a single species of Lepidoptera   in the family Doidae   , Doa   Janzen01, in dry forest.
