Etymology

The Latin term ‘hirsutus’ means ‘hairy, rough, shaggy’. Named after the shaggy surface of the flagellum.

Morphology

Body length: ♂ 4.7–5.3 mm.

Head: Vertex (total length) 1.8–2.6 times longer than wide; basal emargination obtusely angled or rectangular. Postclypeus with well­developed median carina. Rostrum not reaching hind coxae.

Thorax: Hind margin of pronotum obtusely angled. Mesonotum with evanescent or well­developed carinae. Forewing 3.1–3.5 times longer than wide; costa without tubercles; 8 apical cells.

Male genitalia: Anal tube as in Figs 35K–M; pygophore and genital styles as in Figs 35N–O. Aedeagus ( Fig. 35P): Phallotheca with a long, slightly curved spine (a) arising left lateral at apex; and a slightly curved spine (b) arising ventrally about midlength. Flagellum hirsute, unarmed.
