LSID: urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:0C6549FF-4079-40C2-8066-A6E5996EF029

Material examined. Holotype ♂, Brazil: PI, Brasileira / Piracuruca, Parque Nacional de Sete Cidades, -4.0727/0991 -41.6797/7291, 130– 210 m, 21–24.vi.2016, cerrado vegetation with open areas and more humid areas around pond, Copaifera cearensis (D. Burckhardt & D.L. Queiroz)  #201(5) ( MZSP, dry mounted). 

Paratypes. Brazil: PI: 2 ♂, 3 ♀, same data as holotype  ( MZSP, NHMB, dry and slide mounted).

Description. Adult. Colouration. Similar to M. copaiferae  . Forewing ( Fig. 122View FIGURES 111–133) transparent, colourless with a dark brown, submarginal zigzag band stretching from cell r 2 to cu 1, with triangular, marginal dark brown dots in cells m 1 and m 2 as well a dark brown spot at apex of clavus; veins yellow or light brown

Structure. Head inclined in a 30° angle from longitudinal body axis. Genal processes short, irregularly narrowing towards blunt apex, 0.3–0.4 times as long as vertex along midline ( Fig. 113View FIGURES 111–133). Antenna 2.9–3.0 times as long as head width. Rostrum short, only apical segment visible in profile, 0.4 times as long as head width. Forewing ( Fig. 122View FIGURES 111–133) 2.3–2.6 times as long as head width, 2.2–2.3 times as long as wide, broadly, irregularly rounded apically, most strongly curved in cell r 2; pterostigma moderately long, broad at base, about as wide as adjacent part of cell r 1; cell cu 1 1.0 times higher than wide; surface spinules covering pigmented areas where they are relatively thick, and present on areas in cells r 1 and cu 2 leaving broad spinule-free stripes along the veins, otherwise absent. Metatibia 0.5 times as long as head width. Terminalia as in Figs 142, 143View FIGURES 134–156, 159View FIGURES 157–167. Male proctiger 0.4 times as long as head width, with narrow, slightly curved posterior lobes basally. Paramere simple, lamellar, in profile with subparallel margins, irregularly rounded apically; apex ending in a single small, forward directed slerotised tooth; inner surface sparsely covered in long setae. Distal segment of aedeagus hardly expanded in apical third; sclerotised end tube of ductus ejaculatorius short, almost straight. Female proctiger 1.3 times as long as head width, dorsal outline almost straight in apical half, apex obliquely truncate; circumanal ring 0.2 times as long as proctiger. Female subgenital plate 0.6 times as long as proctiger, apex pointed.

Measurements (in mm; 1 ♂, 1 ♀). Head width ♂ 0.74, ♀ 0.78; antenna length ♂ 2.24, ♀ 2.34; forewing length ♂ 1.70, ♀ 2.12; male proctiger length 0.28; paramere length 0.26; length of distal segment of aedeagus 0.30; female proctiger length 1.06.

Fifth instar immature unkown.

Etymology. From Latin comptus = adorned, decorated, ornate for its beautiful forewing pattern.

Distribution. Brazil (PI).

Host plant, biology and habitat. Adults were collected on Copaifera cearensis Ducke  which is a likely host.— Cerrado.

Comments. Mitrapsylla compta  is similar to M. copaiferae  from which it differs as described under the latter. From other copaiba psyllids it differs as indicated in the key.
