Epiacizzia Li

( Figs 31 View FIGURES 28 – 36 , 82 View FIGURES 81 – 83 )

Diagnosis: Head with vertex trapezoidal, foveae indented; anteorbital tubercles developed, small; often tubercle present in the middle of the fore margin on either side; antero-median part of vertex forming tubercle; separation between vertex and genae distinct; genal processes developed, conical, subacute or blunt apically, rounded dorsally ( Fig. 31 View FIGURES 28 – 36 ). Antenna less than twice head width. Forewing oval or subrhomboidal; bearing dark pattern consisting of small spots and sometimes larger extended areas; pterostigma short or long, ending above the middle of Rs or distal to it. Metatibia without genual spine, with 4–8 sclerotised apical spurs.

Biology and damage: Unknown.

Host-plants: Fabaceae and Lauraceae ( Li 2011; NHMB data).

Distribution: Pantropical ( Li 2011; NHMB data).

Remarks: Currently, Epiacizzia is used only for species in China ( Li 2011). An ongoing generic revision of Macrocorsinae (D. Burckhardt, in prep.) suggests that several species currently assigned to Colophorina or Euphalerus , belong, in fact to Epiacizzia . This is the first record of this genus in Colombia.
