Diagnosis. This is a medium sized species (length of forewing 6.0– 8.5 mm) easy to distinguish by the color of the forewing, which has a dark spot apical to the marginal cell, with the remainder of the wing margin paler. The pubescence is dense and long, the hairs on the mesopleuron are 3.2–4.1x MOD (male) and 2.3–3.0x MOD (female). Males are characterized by the orange scape and pedicel ( Fig. 8C View FIGURE 8 ), and the shape of the hind basitarsus (11C), which has a basal inner rounded projection followed by a median tooth, and a broadly rounded apex. The hidden sterna and genital capsule have been drawn by Rodríguez and Roig-Alsina (2004).

Comments. The extensive synonymy of this species has been treated by Moure & Melo (2007); only recent citations are mentioned above.
