( Figs. 1K, 3G–I)

Diagnosis. Length of male 2.5 mm. Ground color stramineous infused with brown; apex of anteclypeus, lateral margins of frontoclypeus, mesonotal triangles, mesepisternum, and abdominal terga brown. Male pygofer ( Fig. 3G) with dorsal appendage arising near base, large, elongate, slightly arcuate, extended to pygofer apex; ventral appendage preapical, slender, extended dorsomesad; lobe between appendages broadly rounded, uniformly sclerotized. Aedeagus ( Figs. 3H, I) with preatrium absent; shaft slender, tubular, weakly recurved, with median longitudinal carina anteriorly; subbasal processes elongate, close to shaft throughout length, extended to shaft apex; apex acuminate; gonopore preapical on posterior surface.

Material examined. Holotype male, HONDURAS: Coyoles , 25 November 1948 (E.C. Becker, at light) [ INHS]   . Paratype: 1 male, HONDURAS: 12 km W Olanchito , 24–25 May 1949 (E.C. Becker) [ INHS]   .

Note. This species resembles N. quadricornis   externally, but differs in having the aedeagal shaft very slender and lacking distal processes. The specific name refers to the country where the type series was collected.
