Fulgenta ponti ( Morge, 1980)

Lamprolonchaea ponti Morge, 1980 , p328, comb. nov.

Notes on the paratype; thorax dark emerald green, scutellar disc with slightly more bluish reflections. Basal and second tarsomeres clear yellow, others darkened but not black just darker yellow. Lunule with ground colour orange-brown, covered with silver pollinosity, arista short plumose, plumes approximately 2.5x width of arista. Wings slightly yellowish, calypteres and their fringes entirely white.

This species was also described by Morge (1980) on the basis of female specimens collected in TANZANIA, Marangu, (3° 17' S. 37° 31' E.) 1–20.iii.1959 by Edwin Lindner. In the key to species provided to the three then known African Lamprolonchaea species ( Morge, 1980) L. ponti is keyed out as having “ Arista deutlich gefiedert” (arista significantly feathery). On the basis of the short plumose arista this species is also assigned to the genus Fulgenta GoogleMaps
