Schoenlandella maculata ( Fischer, 1958) 

( Figures 1View Figure 1 (g), 3(d), 5(a))

Cardiochiles maculatus Fischer, 1958  . Polskie Pismo Ent. 28(2): 14, ♀ ♂. ‘ Gebel Elba , Ägypten ’ (Wien, ♀) (Leg. Priesner)  .

Diagnosis

Generally reddish brown with some black; temple obviously swollen behind eyes ( Figure 1View Figure 1 (g)); apical third of fore wing moderately to heavily infuscate; vein 1-SR+M about 6.4× as long as m-cu ( Figure 3View Figure 3 (d)); spectral node of 3r absent; hind tibia 10.1× as long as wide apically; inner hind tibial spur 1.4× as long as outer one.

Abbreviated description of female

Length of body: 5.1 – 6.0 mm; length of fore wing: 3.1 – 3.2 mm.

Body generally reddish-brown with black on all the following areas: vertex (shiny), upper face, frons (above and between antennal bases to vertex in the middle), tip of mandibles, basal two-thirds of the proboscis, complete antenna, three lobes of mesoscutum shiny (except lateral and apex of middle lobe), lateral side of mesopleuron as well as mesosternum, a spot on both foreface and backface of hind coxa, a spot on backface of hind tibia and almost hind tarsus, metasomal T3 and T8 (posteriorly and laterally), and metasomal T4 – 7 (postero-medially). Middle tarsus somewhat darkened compared with general colouration of legs. Fore wing: infuscated apically, pterostigma almost black except basal orange area, parastigma and tegula entirely orange, the veins M+Cu, 1-SR; 1-M and 1-SR+M orange, the veins 2-SR, 3-SR; 4-SRa and r dark brown, vein 1R1 black. Head: antenna with 31 flagellomeres; OOL:AOL:POL:ØOD = 28:12:16:5. Fore wing: 1-SR +M 6.4× as long as m-cu; 2-SR+M 4.0× as long as mcu; 1-M regularly and weakly curved, 1-SR strongly bent at it middle point, junction of 4SRb and 5-SR forming a distinct angle, m-cu 0.2× as long as 1-M; discal cell 0.54× as long as wide; 1-A absent; 1-2A+3A spectral; 1-Cua 0.22× as long as 1-Cub; 2r 0.63× as long as inside height of SMC2, arising 0.4 along the length of stigma basally; stigma 5.18× as long as wide; angle between 4SRa and Rs 120°; angle between Rs and r-m 92°; spectral node of 3r absent; SMC2 0.38X as long as wide; 2 + 3-SR nearly straight. Legs: Fore tibial spur 0.6× as long as basitarsus; hind tibia 10.1× as long as wide apically; inner hind tibial spur 1.4× as long as outer spur, 0.75× as long as basitarsus. Metasoma: stem of T1 0.28× as long as bulb; median field of T2 2.62× as broad as high.

Remarks

Some specimens with general body melanisation. In addition the following variations may be found either separately or in combination: apical third of fore wing strongly infuscated; with completely black and shiny scutellum; metasoma almost uniformly ferruginous. One female with 32 flagellomeres.

Male

Similar to female but differs in the following: with much darker metasoma; wing venations are almost the same orange colour; metasoma more compressed. In general males have slightly deeper sculpturing especially on mesosoma. This is in addition to differences in morphometric measurements: length of body: 5.2 – 5.3 mm; antenna with 30 flagellomeres (in one male); OOL:AOL:POL:ØOD = 29:10:15:6; fore wing with 1-SR+M 5.55× as long as m-cu; stigma 4.5× as long as wide.
