Calycomyza ipomoeaphaga, Spencer, 1990: 193-195   (nomen nudum).

Calycomyza ipomoeaphaga Martinez, 1992: 289   (in Spencer et al. 1992).

Diagnosis. Wing length 1.4 mm. Fronto-orbital predominantly yellowish, darkened to upper fronto-orbital seta; face yellowish; pedicel brown; legs brown; calypter greyish-yellow with margin black, fringe black. Aedeagus (Fig. 22 and 23): basiphallus sclerotized dorsally at basal half, slightly sclerotized dorsally at distal half and with an intermediate extension joining the two sections along left lateral surface; mesophallus short and globose; subtriangular sclerite present between mesophallus and distiphallus; distiphallus short, forming two tubules covered laterally by a sclerotized plate.

Host-plants. Convolvulceae—* Ipomoea setifera Poir.   , I. tiliaceae (Willd.) Choisy.  

Distribution. * Brazil, Guadeloupe, Saint-Martin.

Material examined. BRAZIL, Pará state, Belém: Avenida João Paulo II, 1º25′20.8″S, 48º26′44.2″W, 19-VI- 2017, R.R. Barbosa [collector], ex leaf of Ipomoea setifera   (2 ♂) GoogleMaps   .

Comments. The shape of the aedeagus in Calycomyza ipomoeaphaga   is similar to that of other Calycomyza   species mining leaves of plants of the genus Ipomoea   . The mesophallus of this species is similar to that of C. ipomaeae   , but it can be differentiated by the shape of the distiphallus. Calycomyza ipomoeaphaga   larvae form linear   mines on the surface of host-plant leaves ( Spencer et al. 1992).
