Antrops zongo View in CoL sp. nov.

( Figs. 165 View FIGURES 161–165 , 228 View FIGURES 222–230 )

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. Subvibrissal and anterior genal bristles about 0.5X length of vibrissa.

Trochanters and tarsi reddish brown. Hind tibia with 3 ventroapical bristles.

Abdominal sternites heavily sclerotized, black, covered with microtomentum in male.

Male postabdomen: Nearly identical to A. inca . Distiphallus with sclerite immediately ventral to curve of dorsal tube convex in lateral view ( Fig. 165 View FIGURES 161–165 ).

Female postabdomen: Tergites 6–7 and sternite 6 wider than long, sclerotized along anterior and lateral margins only. Sternite 7 mostly sclerotized, with a weakly sclerotized medial spot. Tergites with 3 posterior strips, sternites with 2 posterior strips. Tergite 8 with a shallow cleft in anterior margin, microtomentum on distal half and a band reaching anteriorly to cleft. Epiproct with short anterior arms, shiny, with 2 pairs of setae. Cerci broad. Sclerites of sternite 8 broad, subrectangular, pinched and sculptured medially, distal third with microtomentum. Hypoproct subrectangular, with median stripe moderately sclerotized. Spermathecae cylindrical, about 3.5X longer than wide, annulated, with long apical invagination, sclerotized duct slightly shorter than spermatheca.

Type material. Holotype ♂: BOLIVIA: La Paz: Zongo Valley , 16°07'57"S 68°06'56"W, 2600 m, forest, pan traps, 18 Apr 2001, S.A. Marshall, debu00189520 ( UASC) GoogleMaps . Paratypes: same data as holotype (3 ♀, DEBU) GoogleMaps ; Cochabamba: Carrasco, Serrania de Siberia, along Hwy 4, 2722 m, 17°15.43'S 64°42.55'W 17–25 Nov 1993, cloud forest, FMHD# 93–150, bait trap (squid carrion), P.P. Parrillo, W. Rojas (1 ♂, 2 ♀, FMNH) GoogleMaps ; Leque Palca , 1 km E, 3970 m, 26 Mar 2001, A. Friedberg (1 ♂, USNM) ; Serrania de Siberia, Chua Khocha , 2360m, cloud forest, window trap, 26 Aug–6 Sep 1990, P. Parrillo (1 ♀, FMNH) .

Comments. The species name is derived from the type locality for this species, and is treated as a noun in apposition. This species is very similar to A. inca and can only be distinguished by the characters in the key. COI barcodes were obtained from a single specimen of each species (Genbank JX260374 View Materials and JX260381 View Materials ); the uncorrected p-distance between the two sequences is 4.3%, considerably higher than that observed within species with multiple sequences available. A single female specimen from Boconó, Venezuela ( DEBU) keys to the same couplet and may represent another species, but without male specimens this cannot be confirmed .
