Aedeagus (Fig. 3–4 in Monteiro et al. 2015): mesophallus rounded and covered with many spine-like processes; distiphallus sclerotized, enlarged and triangular; hypandrium without apodeme; surstylus with five spines truncated; cercus without spines.

Host-plant. Combretaceae   Terminalia catappa   L.

Comments. Japanagromyza sasakawai   is similar to Japanagromyza   species that have prescutellar setae and a well-sclerotized tubular aedeagus, but can be differentiated from those by the globose mesophallus with spine-like processes (similar to J. hymenoedemia Sasakawa   and J. crinicolis Lonsdale   ) and the enlarged triangular distiphallus. Larvae form irregular   blotches on the surface of the leaf with frass deposited on the edge of the mine.
