Material examined. Holotype ♀, Peru: Junin, Huancayo , 2.vi.2014, Haplorhus peruviana (J. Avalos)  ( NHMB, dry mounted). 

Paratypes. Peru: 2 ♀, same data as holotype ( NHMB, slide mounted and preserved in 70% ethanol). 

Description. Adult. Colouration. Head and thorax reddish dorsally, black ventrally; abdominal sclerites black, intersegmental membranes red. Eyes grey; ocelli reddish. Clypeus dark brown to almost black; tip of rostrum black. Antennal segments 1 and 2 dark brown, apex of segment 2 yellow, segments 3–7 dirty brownish, 8–10 black. Pronotum with each a submedian and sublateral dark dot on either half, hind margin dark. Mesoscutum with five narrow longitudinal dark lines. Metanotum with dark patch. Forewing with brown veins and whitish membrane bearing a brown pattern consisting of ill-defined patches in the middle and apically ( Figs 6View FIGURES 1 – 7, 16View FIGURES 8 – 21). Hindwing whitish, transparent. Leg greyish with brownish femora and dark brown basitarsi and apex of apicotarsi.

Structure. Vertex ( Figs 44View FIGURES 36 – 49, 58View FIGURES 50 – 63) 2.1 times as wide as long, surface finely punctured; genae narrowly rounded, not produced; frons large, triangular. Antenna ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 64 – 80) with one subapical rhinarium on each of segments 4, 6, 8 and 9; segments 5 and 7 slightly narrower than remaining flagellar segments; relative length of antennal flagellar segments = 1.0/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.4/ 0.3/ 0.4/ 0.4/ 0.3; segment 3 longer than segments 4 and 5 together; segment 10 with longer terminal seta 1.2 times as long as segment and shorter seta about 0.3 times as long. Clypeus strongly flattened, triangular. Pronotum transverse, short, about 5 times as wide as long. Meso- and metascutellum transverse, weakly raised. Metacoxa ( Fig. 86View FIGURES 81 – 88) with meracanthus forming small tubercle and short, slightly conical membranous process on the trochanteral cavity. Metatibia with an open crown of 6 apical sclerotised spurs. Forewing ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 7, 16View FIGURES 8 – 21) irregularly rhomboidal, apex narrowly rounded, weakly asymmetrical; vein C+Sc distinctly concave, slender; vein Rs sinuous; vein M1+2 curved backwards; membrane semi-transparent; surface spinules coarse, densely, irregularly spaced, leaving spinule-free stripes along the veins; radular spinules ( Fig. 30View FIGURES 22 – 35) forming broad, ill-defined bands along wing margin in cell m1, m2, and cu1. Terminalia as in Figs 136View FIGURES 128 – 139, 146View FIGURES 140 – 151. Male unknown. Female proctiger cuneate, subacute apically. Subgenital densely pilose ventrally, subacute apically.

Measurements (in mm) and ratios (1 ♀). Head width (HW) 1.12, antenna length (AL) 0.80, forewing length (WL) 2.70, metatibia length (TL) 0.62, female proctiger length (FP) 0.54.—AL/HW 0.71, WL/HW 2.41, WL/ forewing width 2.37, metafemur length/TL 0.65, TL/HW 0.55, FP/HW 0.48, FP/circumanal ring length 3.00, FP/ subgenital plate length 0.77.

Fifth instar immature unknown.

Etymology. Named after Pedro W. Lozada Robles, who provided the material of the new species.

Distribution. Peru (Junin).

Host plant. Adults were collected on Haplorhus peruviana Engl.  ( Anacardiaceae  ) which is a likely host.
