( Figs. 6B View FIGURE 6 , 7B View FIGURE 7 , 8B View FIGURE 8 , 11B View FIGURE 11 , 13F View FIGURE 13 )

Ancyloscelis nigricormis Rodríguez & Roig-Alsina, 2004: 355–356 , figs. 3, 6, 10, 16, 18, 19 and 21 (Holotype male, Argentina, Salta, Sumalao , II-1994, M. Fritz, MACN, examined).

Diagnosis. This species is closely related to A. apiformis , from which it can be separated by the black scape and pedicel in both sexes, and the flagellum is also dark in the males; the pronotal lobe is also dark ( Fig. 8B View FIGURE 8 ). This is the smallest species in Argentina, the length of the forewing being 3.9–5.7 mm. The inner tooth of the hind basitarsus is similar to that of A. apiformis , but less prominent and not hooked ( Fig. 11B View FIGURE 11 ). The hidden sterna and genital capsule have been drawn by Rodríguez and Roig-Alsina (2004).

Distribution. Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay. Argentina: province of Salta. Bolivia, department Santa Cruz. Paraguay, departments of Guayrá and Alto Paraguay.

New records. Bolivia, 3 ♂, Santa Cruz, 24 km S. Camiri, 3-I-1999, ME Irwin & FD Parker ( BBSL) .
