Trichomyia ituberensis Araújo & Bravo  sp. nov.

( Figs. 13 A –IView FIGURES 13 A – I)

Diagnosis. Projections in the aedeagal complex complex, a distal pair with a hook-like apex; the proximal pair with three expansions, all shorter than the distal; ejaculatory apodeme short, 1.7 times the length of gonostylus; cercus with apical rod-like bristles.

Description. Male. Head subcircular in frontal view. Antenna with 13 flagellomeres; scape slightly longer than pedicel; pedicel subspherical; basal flagellomeres pyriform ( Fig. 13 AView FIGURES 13 A – I); 13 th flagellomere subcylindrical with terminal apiculus separated by a suture ( Fig. 13 HView FIGURES 13 A – I); ascoids paired, 1.5 times the length of flagellomeres ( Fig. 13 GView FIGURES 13 A – I). Palpus with three segments; 1 st segment with sensilla in depressed pit on medial surface; palpus formula 1.0: 0.7: 0.9 ( Fig. 13 BView FIGURES 13 A – I). Wing. R 4 + 5 articulated at R 3; r-m present; m-cu absent ( Fig. 13 CView FIGURES 13 A – I). Male terminalia: Hypandrium fused with gonocoxites. Arm of gonocoxites curved in lateral view ( Fig. 13 EView FIGURES 13 A – I) and convergent in dorsal view ( Fig. 13 FView FIGURES 13 A – I) with some apical, rod-like bristles. Gonostylus articulated ventrally to gonocoxite, bare. Projections in the aedeagal complex complex, a distal pair with a hook-like apex; the proximal pair with three expansions, all shorter than the distal. Aedeagus bifid, ending at the same level of distal projection of aedeagal complex ( Fig. 13 FView FIGURES 13 A – I). Ejaculatory apodeme short, 1.7 times the length of gonostylus. Epandrium wider than long ( Fig. 13 IView FIGURES 13 A – I). Cercus pilose, apex narrower than base in lateral view with four apical, elongated and rod-like bristles ( Fig. 13 DView FIGURES 13 A – I).
