Cydia timara Brown  , new species

( Figs. 5View FIGURES 4 – 5, 8View FIGURES 6 – 8, 9, 10View FIGURES 9 – 12)

Diagnosis. Cydia timara  can be separated from C. marita  by the lighter orange apical area and poorly defined costal strigulae on the forewing. The setiform sex scales on 3 A of the male hindwing are less numerous in C. timara  than those in C. marita  ( Figs. 9–12View FIGURES 9 – 12). The two species differ in the number of cornuti on the vesica, with 19 or fewer in the medial area of the vesica of C. timara  and 27 or more in C. marita  . In addition, the lamella postvaginalis of the female is broader relative to length in C. timara  than in C. marita  , and the anterolateral corners of the plate are obtusely angled in C. timara  and acutely angled in C. marita  .

Description. Head: As in C. marita  . Thorax: As in C. marita  , except forewing ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 4 – 5) length 5.2–7.7 mm; basal half of wing with only two indistinct transverse light gray striae near mid-wing, often confluent and forming broad band; apical third of costa brown, without white strigulae, scales in apical third of wing light orange between silvery Y-shaped lines and orange near apical margin, scales without grayish brown bases; distal row of scales at apical margin forming dark brown line, often not broken by white dash. Hindwing in male with 31 to 40 (2 n) small, setiform scales bordering marginal fourth of 3 A ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 9 – 12), apex of sex scale with 8–10 longitudinal ridges ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 9 – 12), marginal fourth of 3 A thickened and grooved, but wing margin not conspicuously crimped near 3 A.

Abdomen: Male genitalia similar to those of C. marita  , with phallus 0.65–0.69 length of valva, vesica with 17–19 cornuti medially and 3–4 cornuti apically. Three preparations examined. Female genitalia ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 6 – 8) with lamella postvaginalis with latero-anterior angles blunt or obtusely angled, width at middle 0.75–0.78 length; corpus bursae posteriorly with small, quadrate diverticulum, distal corners of diverticulum slightly prolonged (diverticulum in mated female reduced to two small lobes by apparent stretching of expanded corpus bursae). Two preparations examined.
