Diagnosis. The presence of a preoccipital lunula (Fig. 32, 87) distinguishes this species from Dyscritobaeus comitans  and other species without a preoccipital lunula. A metascutellum that is visible in dorsal view, wide with posterior margins parallel to mesoscutellum ones, a small metanotal spine, and T2 without a specillum in females ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 87 – 90) distinguishes D. flavus Tortorici et Caleca  sp. nov. from species of the orientalis- group s.l. (i.e. D. orientalis  , D. sulawensis  , D. madagascarensis  ). A metapleural carina with a single posterior pointed projection ( Fig. 87View FIGURES 87 – 90) distinguishes this species from those having two pointed projections ( D. antananarivensis  , D. comitans  , D. madagascarensis  , D. sulawensis  ); a character shared with D. ndokii  , D. bicolor  , D. kilimanjarensis  , D. parvipennis  and D. tanzaniensis  . Color of the head, central keel absent ( Figs 20View FIGURE 20, 89View FIGURES 87 – 90), odontoid process developed (Figs 22, 89) and angle st-pm <40° distinguish the species from D. bicolor  . Odontoid process forms a 90° angle with the ventral margin of the ventral tooth; the ventral tooth is larger than the dorsal tooth in females (Fig. 22). The yellow color of the head distinguishes D. flavus Tortorici et Caleca  sp. nov. from D. parvipennis  .

A 12 long as A 11 ( Fig. 17View FIGURE 17), with a corresponding claval sensilla formula: 1:2:2:2:1:0. A smooth mesepimeral sulcus distinguishes the species from a crenulate furrow in D. sulawensis  .

Description. Female. Length of the body: 1.22 mm.

Head. Color yellow; black occipital carina starting from oral foramen and reaching occiput; black rim around ocelli ( Fig. 20View FIGURE 20). Coriaceous; head covered by hair ( Fig. 20View FIGURE 20).

Frontal depression with a hollow area starting from the interantennal process and not reaching 1/5 the height of eye ( Fig. 20View FIGURE 20). Central keel very short, not surpassing the deeper part of frontal depression ( Fig. 20View FIGURE 20). Fan-like striation in malar area from oral foramen to eye margin, fan-like striation present in genal area. Preoccipital lunula present and sculptured ( Fig. 87View FIGURES 87 – 90).

Measures of the head width: height: length = 0.46: 0.4: 0.21 mm. Malar sulcus length: 0.11 mm. Measures of eye width: heigth = 0.14: 0.2 mm. OOL: LOL: POL = 0.09: 0.06: 0.12 mm. Mandibles bidentate with odontoid process in ventral margin of lower tooth. The lower tooth longer than dorsal tooth; odontoid process make a 90° angle with margin of lower tooth (Fig. 22).

Antenna ( Fig. 41cView FIGURES 41 a – f). Radicle and A 1 yellowish; A 2– A 12 brown. A 1 length: 0.22 mm. Clava six-segmented. Claval sensilla formula 1:2:2:2:1:0 ( Fig. 90View FIGURES 87 – 90).

Mesosoma. In dorsal view, mesoscutum anteriorly yellow to brown in mesoscutellum; mesoscutellum posterior margin yellow; propodeum brown; metascutellum and metanotal spine brown with dark edge ( Figs 87, 88View FIGURES 87 – 90).

In lateral view brown ( Fig. 89View FIGURES 87 – 90).

In dorsal view mesoscutum and mesoscutellum imbricate ( Fig. 87View FIGURES 87 – 90); in lateral view speculum with furrow; femoral depression smooth with fan-like striation starting by post-ventral angle; posterior mesepimeral area not delimitate anteriorly; dorsal metapleural area with crenulate depression with rugae and ventral metapleural area partially smooth ( Fig. 89View FIGURES 87 – 90); metapleural carina with one posterior pointed projection ( Fig. 87View FIGURES 87 – 90). Metascutellum visible in dorsal view, wide with margins parallel to mesoscutellum ones, small metanotal spine ( Fig. 87View FIGURES 87 – 90). Mesosoma length 0.31 m, width 0.47 mm; mesoscutellum length 0.16 mm, width 0.34 mm.

Wings. Fore wing hyaline, surpassing metasoma; wing ratio st: pm: mg: sm: ww: lw: af: pf = 1: 0.2: 0.4: 3.3: 2.8: 8.0: 0.3: 1.4; angle st-pm= 30°, st= 0.1 mm ( Fig. 39eView FIGURES 39 a – f), st= 0.1 mm.

Legs brown with femur lighter than other part.

Metasoma. In dorsal view metasoma light brown in lateral margins; T1 light brown gradually converting in dark brown in the last tergite ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 87 – 90); laterotergites yellowish. On T1 pair of longitudinal submedial carinae are aligned with the metapleural carinae and separate lateral coriaceous microscupture from internal smooth area; in the middle of T1 a sculpure striate to coriaceous starting by anterior margin and gradually dissolving in posterior margin ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 87 – 90). T2 not foveolate in anterior margin, very short longitudinal striae, Coriaceous as other tergites ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 87 – 90).

Male. Length of the body: 1.07 mm.

Head. Color and sculpture as in female. Fan-like striation not visible in genal area ( Fig. 91View FIGURE 91 – 92). Head surface is hairy ( Fig. 91View FIGURE 91 – 92). Measures of the head width: height: length = 0.41: 0.34: 0.21 mm. Malar sulcus length: 0.11 mm. Measures of eye width: heigth= 0.12: 0.19 mm. OOL: LOL: POL= 0.08: 0.06: 0.11 mm. Mandibles as in female except odontoid process extremely short and difficult to recognize ( Fig. 91View FIGURE 91 – 92).

Antenna ( Fig. 41dView FIGURES 41 a – f). Radicles and scape yellow; A2–A5 light brown, A6–A12 brown; A1 length: 0.2 mm; A2 as long as 0.7 A3.

Wings. Fore wing hyaline, surpassing metasoma; ratio st: pm: mg: sm: ww: lw: af: pf = 1: 0.3: 0.5: 3.3: 3.5: 8.3: 0.2: 1.0; angle st-pm= 29°; st= 0.1 mm ( Fig. 39fView FIGURES 39 a – f).

Hind wing as in female. Legs as in female.

Metasoma. Color as in female, sculpture as in female ( Fig. 92View FIGURE 91 – 92). Edeago as in Fig. 44cView FIGURES 44 a – c. Comment and variability. Three hundred and fifty-three specimens were examined from Africa.

Female length ranges from 0.82 mm in Togo to 1.25 mm in Democratic Republic of Congo. Male length ranges from 0.81 mm in Kenya to 1.07 mm in Central African Republic. In both sexes the color is always yellow from dark to light. In male the length of antennal segment A2 is 0.7

times the length of A 3, a ratio that also holds in smaller specimens.

Distribution. ( Fig. 93View FIGURE 93)

Etymology. This species is named after the uniform yellow coloration of the head and body, which is very different from the other Afrotropical species that have a brown to black colored head in contrast to a yellow body.
