Description. Adult. Colouration. Head and thorax dirty whitish to yellowish. Vertex with dark margins along eyes and dark midline; antennal insertions dark. Antenna whitish, with apex of segment 8 as well as entire segments 8 and 9 dark brown. Thorax with margins of sclerites dark. Forewing yellowish, semi-transparent to opaque, with indistinct brown dots covering the whole membrane; apices of veins Rs, M1+2, M3+4 and Cu1a concolorous with surrounding area, apex of Cu1b with a dark dot ( Figs 4View FIGURES 1 – 7, 13View FIGURES 8 – 21). Hindwing semi-transparent, whitish. Abdomen yellowish, slightly lighter ventrally; apex of paramere dark brown.

Structure. Vertex ( Figs 41View FIGURES 36 – 49, 55View FIGURES 50 – 63) 1.7 times as wide as long, surface finely punctured. Antenna ( Fig. 69View FIGURES 64 – 80) with one subapical rhinarium on each of segments 4, 6, 8 and 9; segments 4, 6, and 9 slightly thicker than segment 3; relative length of antennal flagellar segments = 1.0/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.3/ 0.4/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.3; terminal antennal setae about 1.7 and 1.1 times as long as segment 10. Pronotum transverse, short, about 4 times as wide as long, very slightly curved backwards at the sides; suture of propleurites with only one dorsal branch developed. Meso- and metascutellum forming distinctly, slightly transversely raised tubercles. Metacoxa bearing flattened tubercular meracanthus and long cylindrical membranous process on the trochanteral cavity; metatibia with an open crown of 6 apical sclerotised spurs. Forewing ( Figs 4View FIGURES 1 – 7, 13View FIGURES 8 – 21) subrhomboidal, vein C+Sc weakly concave, slightly widened, costal break developed, membrane transversely rugose, semi-transparent to opaque; surface spinules ( Fig. 27View FIGURES 22 – 35) arranged in small groups surrounded by a cellular pattern lacking spinules; radular spinules forming a narrow, indistinct band along the wing margin. Genitalia as in Figs 94View FIGURES 89 – 99, 107View FIGURES 100 – 114, 120View FIGURES 115 – 127, 133View FIGURES 128 – 139, 144View FIGURES 140 – 151. Male subgenital plate, in profile, subrectangular with angular dorsal margin. Paramere almost straight, weakly curved backwards; inner face bearing a group of strongly sclerotised black pegs in apical half. Distal portion of aedeagus weakly inflated apically. Female proctiger cuneate, subacute apically. Subgenital plate sparsely pilose ventrally, subacute apically.

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (1 ♂, 1 ♀). Head width (HW) 0.84–0.94 (0.89±0.07), antenna length (AL) 0.86, forewing length (WL) 1.82–1.90 (1.86±0.06), metatibia length (TL) 0.58–0.68 (0.63±0.07), male proctiger length (MP) 0.3, paramere length 0.22, length of distal segment of aedeagus 0.20, female proctiger length (FP) 1.06.—AL/HW 1.02, WL/HW 2.02–2.17 (2.09±0.10), WL/forewing width 1.98–2.79 (2.39±0.58), metafemur length/TL 0.47–0.59 (0.53±0.08), TL/HW 0.69–0.72 (0.71±0.02), MP/HW 0.40, FP/HW 1.13, FP/circumanal ring length 4.08, FP/subgenital plate length 1.71.

Fifth instar immature unknown.

Etymology. From Greek ἁπλοῦς = single, simple, sound, perfect, referring to simple morphology not displaying any eye-catching differences to its close relatives T. maculipectus  and T. orientalis  .

Distribution. Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina).

Host plants. Adults were collected on Schinus ferox Hassl.  and S. longifolia (Lindl.) Speg.  ( Anacardiaceae  ) which are likely hosts.
