status

 

Jataiba  sp.

Mitrapsylla  sp. B; Brown & Hodkinson 1988: 77.

Description. Adult. The female was described by Brown & Hodkinson (1988). The male is unknown.

Fifth instar immature unknown.

Distribution. Recorded from Panama ( Brown & Hodkinson 1988).

Host plant, biology and habitat. Unknown, probably a species of Copaifera  ( Fabaceae  ).

Comments. This unnamed species from Panama was assigned to Mitrapsylla  by Brown & Hodkinson (1988). It fits the diagnosis of Jataiba  provided above and we transfer it here to this genus. It resembles Jataiba cearensis  , J. cognata  and J. uncigera  in the long, apically pointed genal processes which converge medially, the reduction of the surface spinules on the forewing and the absence of a subbasal incision on the female subgenital plate. It differs from the three species in the longer antennae. More material including males is required for a formal species description.
