Brachypogon (Brachypogon) bifidus Spinelli and Grogan

Brachypogon (Brachypogon) bifidus Spinelli and Grogan, 1998: 66 ( Dominica); Borkent and Spinelli 2000: 45 (in New World catalog south of the USA; distribution); Borkent and Spinelli 2007: 78 (in Neotropical catalog; distribution).

Discussion. This small Neotropical predaceous midge was described by Spinelli and Grogan (1998) from Dominica (type locality) and El Salvador. It is unique among other species in the Brachypogon (B.) impar complex in having a wing with a darkly infuscated membrane and a dark spot distad of the r-m crossvein and a pale spot beyond the dark spot, males are the only species with parameres having a bifid apex, and the antennal flagellum of females with 12 flagellomeres due to a fusion of 12-13. We provide the first records from Guadeloupe.
