( Figures 11–17 View FIGURES 11−17 )

Diagnosis. Ectopsocus gorgonaensis , E. andinus , and E. chiapensis share general characteristics of phallosome structure and clunium. In this group of species the aedeagal arch is stout, and the clunium has a pair of anterolateral tubercular fields, but they differ in that the first one has wings unmarked; the aedeagal arch is stout, keelshaped, the external parameres are proximally slender, distally stout, straight and blunt ended. Also, the clunium has a small papillar field in the middle, next to the clunial comb.

Description. Male. Color. Thoracic tergum and head light brown. Compound eyes black, ocelli hyaline. Forewings light brown with pterostigma slightly darker, hindwings hyaline, with light brown veins. Legs light yellow, coxae with basal half light brown. Abdomen light cream, with dorso-ventral subcuticular, light brown bands.

Morphology. Head as illustrated ( Fig. 13 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Margins and veins of forewings with slender setae, hindwings with row of 17 setae between R 1 and R 4+5 ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Phallosome with three endophallic sclerites: two small, rounded, and a large, central one, with middle area stout and acuminate, flanked by large quadrate area and stout long lobe, distally blunt ( Fig. 16 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Hypandrium trapeziform, wider posteriorly; posterior border as illustrated ( Fig. 17 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Paraprocts ovoid, with nine trichobothria, eight in basal rosettes, without transverse row of setae; marginal spines asymmetric, bifid, short and sharp ( Fig. 15 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Epiproct bell shaped, setal field and pigmentation as illustrated ( Fig. 15 View FIGURES 11−17 ). Clunium vase-shaped, wider anteriorly, with two large antero-lateral fields of dense tubercles; posterior field of papillae as in diagnosis; clunial comb with 26 short stout teeth ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 11−17 ).
