Description. Head black, anterior margin of frons, face, and antenna reddish brown. Clypeus orange, maxillary palp yellow, prementum dark brown. Mostly covered with microtomentum, frons with frontal triangle and interfrontal plates mostly shiny, microtomentum around bases of postvertical bristles and bases of ocellar bristles, may reach anteriorly from ocellar bristles, microtomentum on orbital plates reaching bases of interfrontal setae, face mostly shiny, microtomentum on lunule and below base of antenna, gena may have small median shiny spot, occiput with shiny spots lateral to foramen. Subvibrissal and anterior genal bristles about 0.5X length of vibrissa.

Trochanters and tarsi reddish brown. Hind tibia with a long thin anteroventral bristle, 3 ventroapical bristles.

Sternites heavily sclerotized, black, covered with microtomentum in male.

Male postabdomen: Sternite 5 with curved lateral margins, widest medially, posterior corners projecting slightly and bearing tufts of long setae, posterior margin shallowly emarginated, anterior apodeme about as long as external portion, pointed, with a dorsal keel. Surstylus broad, scooped. Pregonite small, fused with postgonite. Postgonite with lobes long, clearly separated, anterior lobe rounded, posterior lobe slightly longer, pointed. Basiphallus with short epiphallus and preepiphallus, preepiphallus transparent. Distiphallus with dorsal tube of unusual shape, spinose basal portion right-angled, with a smooth, fan-shaped apical sclerite, ventral sclerite curved dorsally at apex, forming a shield-like sclerite ( Fig. 156 View FIGURES 155–160 ).

Female postabdomen: Tergites 6–7 and sternites 6–7 wider than long, sclerotized along anterior and lateral margins only. Tergites with 3 posterior strips, sternites with 2 posterior strips. Tergite 8 with a shallow cleft in anterior margin, pinched medially, covered with microtomentum except anterior corners. Epiproct with short anterior arms, shiny, with 2 pairs of setae. Cerci broad. Sclerites of sternite 8 broad, subrectangular, pinched medially, distal third with microtomentum. Hypoproct subrectangular, with an hourglass-shaped sclerotized patch. Spermathecae barrel-shaped, about 1.2X longer than wide, without invaginations, sclerotized duct about as long as spermathecae.

Type material. Holotype ♂: BOLIVIA: La Paz: Coroico, Cerro Uchumachi , 16°12'43"S 67°42'49"W, 2550 m, cloud forest, 5 Apr 2001, S.A. Marshall, debu00189496 ( UASC) GoogleMaps . Paratypes: same data as holotype (1 ♀, DEBU) GoogleMaps ; as above but 6 Apr 2001 (1 ♀, DEBU) ; as above but elfin forest, dung pans, 5–6 Apr 2001 (2 ♂, 3 ♀, DEBU, UASC) ; as above but pan traps, 5–16 Apr 2001 (2 ♀, DEBU) .

Comments. The species name is derived from the type locality, and should be treated as a noun in apposition.
