Neozygina sonorensis   n. sp.

( Figs. 1O, 3R–T)

Diagnosis. Length of male 2.7 mm. Coloration as described for N. antlera   . Pygofer ( Fig. 3R) with dorsal appendage arising near midlength, short, broadened medially, serrate dorsally, not extended to pygofer apex; ventral appendage arising preapically, relatively short, slender, curved dorsomesad; lobe between appendages narrowly rounded, weakly sclerotized. Aedeagus ( Figs. 3S, T) with preatrium short; shaft slender, tubular, nearly straight; subbasal processes arising near shaft midlength, long, slender, closely parallel to shaft, extended ca. 2/3 distance to shaft apex; apex in posterior view broad, rounded, with pair of long ventrolaterally directed processes arising from lateral flange; gonopore apical.

Material examined. Holotype male, MEXICO: Sonora, Hacienda Naynari , 19 March 1927 (A. Dampf, M.B.209) [ INHS].  

Note. This species resembles N. penapacha   , but differs in having the aedeagal shaft straight, the distal processes more robust, and the apex in posterior view broadly rounded rather than angulate. The specific name refers to the Mexican state where the holotype was collected.
