Cyptophania hirsuta Banks

Cyptophania hirsuta Banks (1931: 440, Pl.VII, Fig. 1, Pl. VIII, Fig. 7, Pl. IX, Fig. 5)

Banks (1931) provided a suitable description of the color and general form of this species, including the fore wing venation. We add below information permitting its detailed comparison with other species.

Augmented description. Antenna with 45 flagellomeres. Whorls of microtriches vaguely visible in basal halves of some flagellomeres from f 7 outward. All flagellomeres bearing long setae (most about equal to length of their flagellomeres); these in a subapical whorl on each of f 2 –f 19, more irregular in arrangement beyond f 19. Lacinial tip ( Fig. 8 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ): lateral tine with outer denticle slightly doubled at tip, rounded inner denticle, simple median tine. Fore wing with a distinctive pattern ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ). Hind wings developed as short, slender straps, slightly longer than length of the metatergum ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ). Hind coxal rasp relatively wide, occupying about half of inner edge of coxa ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ). Trichobothrium-like setae absent on hind tibia. Hind tibial spurs striated. Twelve ctenidia present on hind t 1, forming inner row ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ). One abdominal tergite before clunium strongly pigmented and sclerotized, a second weakly pigmented. Ovipositor valvulae ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ) with v 1 relatively long. Collar of spermathecal duct ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ) elongate, about 5 X as long as its basal width, with orifice about three-fourths distance from base to tip and a small appendage just distal to orifice. Spermathecal cutter ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 3 – 14 ) curved horn-like in lateral view, occupying about half length of spermathecal sac in slide preparation. Spermathecal gland reticulate. Telson lobes as described for the genus.

Female measurements (µm). BL = 1848, FW = 1399, F = 568, T = 815, t 1 = 343, t 2 = 63, t 3 = 64, f 1 = 41, f 2 = 41, f 3 = 44, f 4 = 44, IO = 429, d = 100, D = 198, IO/d = 4.29, IO/D = 3.09.

Material examined. USA: Hawaii: Hawaii Co.: Hilo, Saddle Road, el. 457 M, 29 August 1957, beating foliage in woodland, 3 females, coll. E. L. Mockford.
