Diagnosis. Paramere, in lateral view, clavate; posterior margin indented along median third; apex somewhat straight, subequally expanded anteriorly and posteriorly; sclerotised ridge in posterior third. Aedeagus complex unipartite; in lateral view, ventral process with apical expansion slightly larger than dorsal lobe.

Description. Colouration. Body with whitish striped-pattern; variation: vertex with stripes along lateral and posterior margins usually weak; mesopraescutum with lateral stripes fused to lateral spots on posterior margin; older specimens with markings with dark outline.—Head and thorax usually multi-coloured, ground colour yellowish-brown, orange-brown to medium brown. Gena sometimes slightly darker to brown ventrally; genal process yellowish. Eye grey to red; ocelli colourless to orange. Antenna light yellow, segments 1–2 slightly darker. Clypeus yellow to dark yellow, slightly lighter medially and darker along edges; rostrum light yellow to yellow. Thorax usually darker lateroventrally, with margins of sclerites darker. Mesopraescutum rarely with posterior half irregularly coloured. Forewing colourless to yellowish-brown, usually yellow around vein Cu 1b; veins dark yellow to medium brown; pterostigma concolorous or slightly lighter than veins. Hindwing colourless. Fore- and midleg dark yellow to brown with tarsi sometimes darker, hindleg entirely light yellow or metafemur concolorous with rest of legs in basal two thirds. Abdomen light yellowish-brown, light brown to medium brown, sometimes darker ventrally; intersegmental membranes light straw-coloured; spiracular sclerites concolorous with tergites. Male proctiger and subgenital plate irregularly dark yellow to brown, paramere dark yellow. Female terminalia irregularly dark yellow, proctiger usually brownish apically and around anus, subgenital plate usually brownish basally.

Structure. Body length ♁ 2.3–2.5 mm (2.41± 0.07 mm), ♀ 2.5–2.8 mm (2.62± 0.13 mm) (5 ♁, 5 ♀). Genal process ( Fig. 135View FIGURES 133–147) expanded or subconical, evenly or irregularly narrowing towards subacute or narrowly rounded apex, 0.5–0.7 times as long as vertex along midline. Antenna 2.3–2.7 times as long as head width; longest terminal seta about as long as segment 10. Apical labium segment 0.2 times longer than head width and 0.6–0.7 times longer than median segment. Forewing ( Fig. 165View FIGURES 163–172) 2.7–3.1 times as long as head width, 2.2 times as long as wide, obovoid, narrowly or broadly rounded apically; vein M+Cu 1 0.3–0.4 times as long as Cu 1; ratio a/b 1.5–1.7; ratio c/d 0.7–0.9; ratio e/f 0.5–1.6. Surface spinules distinctly ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 38–43) to moderately ( Fig. 39View FIGURES 38–43) spaced, forming rhomboids; covering cell r 1 apically, apical half of cell r 2, around radular areas of cells m 1, m 2 and cu 1 (sometimes much reduced), m 2 basally, and most of cell cu 2; leaving spinule-free spaces along veins ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 38–43). Radular spinules sometimes present in r 2 but inconspicuous. Metatibia 0.7–0.8 times as long as head width.

Terminalia. Male. Proctiger, in lateral view, 0.4 as long as head width; with short, weakly to strongly tapered, weakly down-curved posterior lobe. Paramere, in lateral view ( Figs 199View FIGURES 193–201 ‾201) 0.8–0.9 times as long as proctiger; clavate, strongly expanded apically; anterior margin almost straight to concave before apex; posterior margin indented along median third; apex somewhat straight, subequally expanded anteriorly and posteriorly, with sclerotised ridge in posterior third ( Fig. 200View FIGURES 193–201); inner surface ( Fig. 200View FIGURES 193–201) covered with short setae, longer basally and along posterior margin, with row of thick setae along apical anterior margin, several thick setae below sclerotised ridge, and group of stout setae on apical posterior margin; in dorsal view ( Fig. 285View FIGURES 283–312), sclerotised ridge subrectangular, bearing posterior tooth after conspicuous indention. Aedeagus ( Fig. 201View FIGURES 193–201) complex unipartite; in lateral view, dorsal lobe obovoid; ventral process weakly upturned to relatively straight, with apical expansion slightly larger than dorsal lobe, globular, bearing long, conical tubercle.—Female ( Fig. 315View FIGURES 313–318). Proctiger, in lateral view, 1.0 times as long as head width; dorsal outline weakly to moderately concave distal to circumanal ring, apical extension almost straight, apex slightly upturned, obliquely rounded to smoothly obliquely truncate; circumanal ring 0.4 times as long as proctiger. Subgenital plate, in lateral view, 0.4–0.5 times as long as proctiger; apex well-developed; ventral outline almost straight to slightly sinuous, sometimes slightly notched submedially; covered with medium long setae in median third, ventrally throughout and in apical third, long setae at apex, and group of long setae on dorsum subapically, with seta-free patch subapically; in ventral view ( Fig. 345View FIGURES 343–362), lateral margins abruptly narrowing at half, with apical half strongly narrowing towards slightly broad, subtruncate apex.

Measurements (in mm) (3 ♁, 3 ♀). HW ♁ 0.63–0.69 (0.65±0.03), ♀ 0.66–0.70 (0.68±0.02); AL ♁ 1.52–1.79 (1.63±0.14), ♀ 1.77–1.80 (1.78±0.02); LAB2 ♁ 0.15–0.17 (0.16±0.01), ♀ 0.17–0.18 (0.18±0.01); LAB3 ♁ 0.11, ♀ 0.12; FL ♁ 1.75–1.87 (1.82±0.07), ♀ 1.95–2.11 (2.05±0.09); TL ♁ 0.45–0.49 (0.47±0.02), ♀ 0.50–0.51 (0.50±0.01); MP 0.24–0.26 (0.25±0.01); PL 0.21–0.22 (0.22±0.01); DL 0.21–0.25 (0.24±0.02); FP 0.66–0.69 (0.68±0.02).

Etymology. Named after its host-plant genus, Andira  .

Distribution. Brazil: Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Paraná, S„o Paulo.

Host-plant. Andira fraxinifolia Benth.  (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae  , Aeschynomeneae).

Habitat. Atlantic forest, coastal Atlantic forest, Araucaria  forest, Cerrado, mangroves and coastal scrub.

Comments. Dark specimens of M. andirae  sp. nov. resemble M. clavata  sp. nov. and M. periandrae  sp. nov., but differ in the paramere which is strongly expanded apically in lateral view, with posterior margin indented along median third. See comments under M. clavata  sp. nov.
