Neozygina zapatai   n. sp.

( Figs. 1R, 3X–Z)

Diagnosis. Length of male 2.7 mm. Overall color pale yellow, apex of anteclypeus, mesonotal triangles, and abdominal terga brown; crown spots relatively small. Male pygofer and genitalia as described for N. sordida   except aedeagus with gonoduct in lateral view extended diagonally across shaft.

Material examined. Holotype male, MEXICO: Jalisco, ca. La Huerta , 480m, 19°27'47"N 104°39'13"W, 16 Oct 2001 (S. H. McKamey, et al., fogging 3- FH) [ INHS] GoogleMaps   . Paratypes: 3 males, same data except fogging 2, 2-BL, 2-FL [ INHS] GoogleMaps   .

Note. This species resembles N. quadricornis   and N. sordida   in having a similarly bifurcated dorsal pygofer appendage, but differs in its smaller size, paler coloration, and in the structure of the aedeagus, which has the gonoduct extended diagonally across the shaft rather than parallel to the posterior margin. This species is named in memory of Emilano Zapata Salazar (1879–1919), hero of the Mexican Revolution.
