Steleops manizalensis  n. sp.

( Figs. 33−43View FIGURES 33 − 38View FIGURES 39 − 43)

Male. Color (in 80 % alcohol). Body creamy white, with dark areas as indicated below. Compound eyes greenish, on black background, ocelli hyaline, with dark brown centripetal crescents. Head pattern as illustrated ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 33 − 38): one large, dark brown transversal band from each compound eye and upper part of the gena, extending to frons, postclyclypeus and labrum, paler on the clypeus; genae creamy white; vertex and occiput creamy white. Antennae: Scape pale brown, pedicel and flagellum creamy white; maxillary palpomeres 1−3 creamy, Mx 4 pale brown, with dark brown apex. Prothoracic coxae creamy white, brown basally; meso and metathoracic coxae dark brown. Pro-, meso-, and metathoracic femora with dark basal spot. Trochanters and tibiae creamy white; tarsi brown. Tergal lobe of mesothorax creamy white with brown spot, metathorax dark brown. Abdomen creamy white, with brown bands on tergum, corresponding to each segment, ventrally less pigmented. Fore wings ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 33 − 38) distinctly pigmented, with irregular grayish brown areas, dark brown diagonal band from anterior end of pterostigma to Cu 2, joined by a few round spots to greater spot ending in the middle of A; pterostigma with a dark greyish band posteriorly, extending to cell R 1; hind wings hyaline, veins brown, R 2 + 3, R 4 + 5 and M distally with brown spots, as illustrated ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 33 − 38).

Morphology. Head concave at vertex, somewhat trapeziform in front view, compound eyes pedunculate, somewhat elongate, MxW/MnW: 1.31, H/MxW: 1.11; C: 200 microns. Fore wings elongate, slender, L/W: 3.48, costal margin approximately straight; pterostigma wider posteriorly, lp/wp: 5.00. Rs-M fused for a short length; Rs curved towards the pterostigma and shorter than R 2 + 3; cell M almost rectangular, with concave parallel sides; areola postica trapeziform, elongate. Hind wing Rs-M fused for a short distance, Rs three times as long as the fused length. Vein R 4 + 5 0.9 times the length of Rs. Hypandrium asymmetric ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 33 − 38) with two well sclerotized apical processes; the right one more slender and acuminate than the left one; posterior margin with fine setae. Phallosome pentagonal ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 33 − 38) with a stout, rugose, posterior process, bearing a field of small teeth along posterior border.

Clunium extended posteriorly over the area of the paraprocts-epiproct. Paraprocts ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 33 − 38) elongate, with slen- der, acuminate mesal prong; sensory fields with 34−35 trichobothria in basal rosettes; epiproct ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 33 − 38) broadly pear shaped, extended anteriorly to form a long, distally rounded projection.

Female. Color. Color patterns of head, thorax, wings and abdomen as in the males. Clunium, epiproct, paraproct, ovipositor valvulae and subgenital plate reddish brown.

Morphology. Head concave at vertex, somewhat trapeziform in front view ( Fig. 40View FIGURES 39 − 43); MxW/MnW: 1.22; C: 190 microns. Compound eyes elongate, pedunculate, as in the males. Fore wings elongate, L/W: 3.42, shorter than the males; costal margin strongly convex ( Fig. 39View FIGURES 39 − 43); pterostigma wider posteriorly, lp/wp: 3.93. Rs-M fused for a short distance, as in the males; Rs curved towards the pterostigma and shorter than R 2 + 3; cell M almost rectangular, with concave parallel sides; areola postica trapeziform, elongate. Hind wing Rs-M fused at a short distance, as in males; Rs six times as long as the fused length, R 4 + 5 twice as long as Rs. Subgenital plate ( Fig. 43View FIGURES 39 − 43) broad, setose, with stout, long, columnar middle projection, rounded distally. Ninth sternum membranous, concave anteriorly; spermapore circular, surrounded by ochre, irregular rim ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 39 − 43). Ovipositor valvulae ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 39 − 43): V 1 slender, elongate, distally pointed; V 2 long, broad, stout, distally rounded; V 3 short, relatively small, broad, with macrosetae on posterior margin; with posterior, triangular small lobe. Paraprocts triangular ( Fig. 41View FIGURES 39 − 43) with setae on apex and lateral margin; sensory fields with 30 trichobothria in basal rosettes. Epiproct bell-shaped, broad at base, longer than wide, with setae on posterior margin.
