Antrops carpishensis View in CoL sp. nov.

( Figs. 68–70 View FIGURES 65–70 , 211 View FIGURES 204–212 )

Description. Head reddish brown, occiput black, gena and median part of frons dark brown. Mostly covered with microtomentum, frons with a shiny V-shaped patch reaching from anterior margin posteriorly on either side of ocellar triangle to posterior margin, face mostly shiny with patches of microtomentum below antenna and lunule. Ocellar bristles absent, outer vertical bristle less than 0.5X length of inner vertical bristle. Subvibrissal bristle about 0.5X length of vibrissa, anterior genal bristle not developed. Gena about 0.3X eye height. Labellum with 14 pseudotrachea.

Thorax black. Mostly covered with microtomentum, proepisternum shiny, anepisternum with microtomentum along dorsal third and posterior quarter of sclerite, katepisternum with shiny spot behind fore coxa and with posterior portion above mid coxa shiny, meron and metapleuron shiny. Postpronotal, anterior notopleural, lateral postalar, and apical scutellar bristles long, posterior notopleural, basal scutellar, and katepisternal bristles short, posterior dorsocentral bristle very short, other bristles absent or indistinguishable from surrounding setae. Scutellum very short, wing and halter absent.

Legs black, trochanters and joints reddish brown, fore tarsus whitish, mid and hind tarsi brown. Mid tibia with row of anterodorsal, 1 anteroventral, 1 posteroventral, 5 apical bristles. Hind tibia with 2 ventroapical bristles.

Abdominal tergites heavily sclerotized, black, covered with microtomentum, with 4 enlarged bristles near posterior margin. Sternites heavily sclerotized, black, covered with microtomentum.

Male postabdomen: Sternite 5 widest posteriorly, posterior margin with a median projection subtended by a dorsal keel, posterior corners with detached curved lobes, anterior apodeme broad (apodeme broken in holotype, Fig. 70 View FIGURES 65–70 ). Surstylus broad, anterior lobe with a small projection ( Fig. 69 View FIGURES 65–70 ). Pregonite fused with postgonite. Postgonite with very short, barely distinct lobes. Basiphallus without distinct epiphallus, narrow preepiphallus. Distiphallus with long, spinose dorsal tube ( Fig. 68 View FIGURES 65–70 ).

Female postabdomen: Tergites 6–7 and sternites 6–7 wider than long, fully sclerotized, shiny. Tergites with 3 posterior strips, sternites with 2 strips. Tergite 8 narrowest posteriorly, shallowly emarginated anteriorly and posteriorly, posterior third and medial section covered with microtomentum. Epiproct with long anterior arms, 1 pair of setae, covered with microtomentum posteriorly. Cerci narrow. Sclerites of sternite 8 broad, with microtomentum along posterior margin. Hypoproct U-shaped, arms shiny. Spermathecae sausage-shaped, about 4X as long as wide, annulated, sclerotized duct short.

Type material. Holotype ♂: PERU: Huánuco: Paso Carpish, vic. Chinchao , 9°43'S 76°04'W, 2650 m, cloud forest, FMHD#83–903, berl., litter, 15 Jan 1983, Newton & Thayer, debu01040963 ( FMNH) GoogleMaps . Paratypes: same data as holotype (2 ♀, FMNH) GoogleMaps .

Comments. The species name is derived from the type locality. The long bristles on the abdominal tergites recall those of A. chaetosus , but this species is otherwise very different.
