Calycomyza ipomoensis Esposito, 1994: 114   .

Diagnosis. Wing length 1.4–1.6 mm. Fronto-orbital predominantly yellowish, brownish to upper fronto-orbital seta; pedicel brown; legs brown, with apex of femur and base of tibia yellow in the fore leg; calypter yellowish, fringe black. Aedeagus (Fig. 2 and 3 in Esposito 1994): basiphallus slightly sclerotized; mesophallus short and globose with one pair of extensions distally; subquadrate sclerite present between mesophallus and distiphallus; distiphallus forming two strong tubules bearing two fused projections distally.

Host-plant. Convolvulaceae— Ipomoea asarifolia (Desr.) Roemer & Schultes.  

Distribution. Brazil.

Material examined. BRAZIL, Pará state, Belém: Universidade Federal Rural da Amazônia ( UFRA), 1º27′12.2″S, 48º26′12.3″W, 30-XII-1993, M.C. Esposito [collector], ex leaf of Ipomoea asarifolia   (♀) GoogleMaps   ; same loca- tion, 21-II-1994, M.C. Esposito [collector], ex leaf of Ipomoea asarifolia   (♂); same data (5 ♀) GoogleMaps   ; same location, 30- XII-1993, M.C. Esposito [collector], ex leaf of Ipomoea asarifolia   (4 ♂) GoogleMaps   ; same data (2 ♀) GoogleMaps   .

Comments. Calycomyza ipomoensis   is similar to C. stegmaieri Spencer   , from which it is differentiated by the shape of the distiphallus. So far, this species has only been associated with Ipomoea asarifolia   , forming blotches on the surface of the leaf with frass deposited in continuous lines.
