Hindwing whitish, transparent. Abdomen brown, intersegmental membranes reddish orange. Often with white dots on head, thorax and abdomen arranged in a longitudinal pattern. Younger specimens with less expanded dark colour.

Structure. Head inclined in a 45° angle from longitudinal body axis. Genal processes subconical with subacute apex, 0.4–0.6 times as long as vertex along midline ( Figs 6View FIGURES 1–10, 116View FIGURES 111–133). Antenna 2.2–2.5 times as long as head width. Rostrum short, apical segment and sometimes apex of median segment visible in profile, 0.4–0.5 times as long as head width. Forewing ( Fig. 125View FIGURES 111–133) 2.9–3.3 times as long as head width, 2.3–2.5 times as long as wide, broadly, evenly rounded apically; pterostigma short, about as wide as or wider than adjacent part of cell r 1 at base; cell cu 1 0.7–0.8 times higher than wide; surface spinules much reduced, present in apical half of cell r 1, in the middle of cells r 2, m 1, m 2 and cu 1 along wing margin, and in cell cu 2, leaving broad spinule-free stripes along the veins. Metatibia 0.7–0.8 times as long as head width. Terminalia as in Figs 131View FIGURES 111–133, 148–150View FIGURES 134–156, 162 and 167View FIGURES 157–167. Male proctiger 0.3–0.4 times as long as head width, with narrow, slightly curved posterior lobes basally. Paramere lamellar, widened along posterior margin near apex forming small lobe; with small, inwards directed sclerotised tooth apically which is narrowly truncate apically; inner surface moderately densely covered in long setae, with a dense group of thick spines at the hind margin subapically. Distal segment of aedeagus inflated in apical half; distal dilatation with apico-ventral hook which varies in size ( Figs 149, 150View FIGURES 134–156), two apical small teeth, a lobe on either side subapically and a short membranous lobe basally; sclerotised end tube of ductus ejaculatorius short, very weakly curved. Female proctiger 0.9–1.0 times as long as head width, dorsal outline almost straight or weakly sinuous, apex slightly upturned, obliquely truncate; circumanal ring 0.3 times as long as proctiger. Female subgenital plate 0.5–0.6 times as long as proctiger, ventral outline almost straight; densely covered in setae, without seta-free patch in the middle on either side.

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (5 ♂, 5 ♀). Head width ♂ 0.56–0.64, ♀ 0.56–0.66; antenna length ♂ 1.40– 1.58, ♀ 1.26–1.50; forewing length ♂ 1.62–1.98, ♀ 1.68–2.16; male proctiger length 0.20–0.22; paramere length 0.20–0.22; length of distal segment of aedeagus 0.22–0.24; female proctiger length 0.60–0.64.

Fifth instar immature. Colouration. White, antenna yellowish with apices of flagellar segments brown. Tibiae and tarsi greyish brown.

Structure. Body 1.3–1.9 times as long as wide. Antenna 8-segmented, 1.3–1.9 times as long as forewing pad. Marginal setae on forewing pad weakly capitate, short and medium long, mostly shorter than distance between bases of adjacent setae; setae on dorsum of wing pads weakly capitate. Circumanal ring small, weakly indented anteriorly ( Fig. 173View FIGURES 168–174).

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (23 immatures). Body length 1.00–1.90, antenna length 0.66–0.92.

Host plant, biology and habitat. Copaifera langsdorffii Desf.  , C. marginata Benth.  , C. trapezifolia Hayne.  — In the material at hand, 26 adult specimens (7 ♂, 19 ♀) are parasitised by Strepsiptera, consisting of 11 male pupae, two of which are hatched ( Fig. 223View FIGURES 221–224), and 16 adult females ( Fig. 224View FIGURES 221–224). In general each psyllid is parasitised by one strepsipteran but one female psyllid has two parasitoids, one ♂ pupa and an adult female. The parasitoids were always found in the abdomen.—Cerrado, Atlantic forest, Araucaria  forest, riparian and transitional forests, natural and degraded, along plantations, single trees.

Comments. Mitrapsylla gloriae  differs from other copaiba psyllids as indicated in the key. In the small body size, moderately long, subacute genal processes, lamellar paramere and structure of the aedeagus, it resembles closely M. borealis  , from which it differs in the paramere which is more expanded apically, the apical dilatation of the aedeagus, which is about half as long as distal segment, and the denser setae of the female subgenital plate, which cover the entire apical two thirds. The last instar immature differs from other Mitrapsylla  species from copaiba in the relatively small, dorso-anteriorly weakly indented outer circumanal ring. We assume that the fourth instar immatures collected together with a longer series of fifth instar immatures of M. gloriae  (sample D. Burckhardt & D.L. Queiroz #142(2)) belong to this species though the circumanal ring has its largest longitudinal extension in the middle rather than sublaterally as in the last instar. For this reason we do not include the fourth instar specimens in the type series. The same sample comprises also material of Jataiba uncigera  and M. copaiferae  whose immatures are quite distinct.

M. gloriae  is widely distributed and very common on its host plants. The specimens from C. marginata  are slightly smaller than those from C. langsdorffii  but do not differ structurally.
