Trichomyia complicata Araújo & Bravo  sp. nov.

( Figs. 22 A –HView FIGURES 22 A – H)

Diagnosis. Gonocoxites with posterior arm tapering apically, anterior margin with a row of small rod-like setae; two pairs of digitiform projections in the aedeagal complex; the inner projection about twice longer than lateral projection; ejaculatory apodeme short, 0.3 times the length of gonostylus; cercus with two short apical bristles.

Description. Male. Head subcircular in frontal view. Antenna incomplete in the studied specimens; scape subcylindrical; pedicel subspherical ( Fig. 22 AView FIGURES 22 A – H); flagellomeres pyriform and eccentric ( Fig. 22 AView FIGURES 22 A – H); ascoids 1.8 times as long as the length of flagellomere ( Fig. 22 CView FIGURES 22 A – H). Palpus three segmented; first segment with sensilla in depressed pit on medial surface; palpus formula 1.0: 0.6: 0.6 ( Fig. 22 BView FIGURES 22 A – H). Wing. R 4 + 5 incomplete at base; r-m and m-cu absent ( Fig. 22 DView FIGURES 22 A – H). Male terminalia: Hypandrium and gonocoxites fused. Gonocoxites with posterior arm tapering apically; anterior margin with a row of small rod-like setae ( Fig. 22 GView FIGURES 22 A – H). Gonostylus slightly sclerotized, articulated ventrally to gonocoxite, bare, curved ( Figs. 22 G, 22 EView FIGURES 22 A – H). Presence of two pairs of digitiform projections in the aedeagal complex; the inner projection about twice longer than lateral projection ( Figs. 22 G, 22 EView FIGURES 22 A – H). Aedeagus ending at apex of projections in the aedeagal complex ( Fig. 22 GView FIGURES 22 A – H). Ejaculatory apodeme short, 0.3 times the length of gonostylus. Epandrium longer than wide. Cercus piriform ( Fig. 22 HView FIGURES 22 A – H) with two short apical bristles ( Fig. 22 FView FIGURES 22 A – H). Hypoproct with apical micropilosity ( Fig. 22 HView FIGURES 22 A – H).

Female. Unknown.
