Oliarus kampaspe Kirkaldy sensu Jacobi 1928:32   , misidentification of O. kampaspe Kirkaldy, 1906: 398   .

Remarks Jacobi (1928) presents a redescription of O. kampaspe Kirkaldy   based on specimens from the Kimberley district, which were available to us for examination. These specimens were misidentified by Jacobi (see further details in the remarks section of O. kampaspe Kirkaldy   ) and represent a new species described herein as Ozoliarus poculum   .

Etymology

The Latin term ‘poculum’ means ‘cup, goblet’. Named after a spine on the phallotheca which, in ventral view, is shaped like a cup.

Colour

Body dark brown to black, carinae paler, frons lateral with a white mark; legs light to mid brown; forewing hyaline colourless with indistinct or without brown marks along crossveins, veins light to mid brown apically darker, tubercles concolorous with veins, pterostigma mid brown; abdominal sternites dark brown.

Morphology

Body length: ♂ 5.2–7.3 mm, ♀ 5.7–7.0 mm.

Head: Vertex (total length) 1.4–1.8 times longer than wide; basal emargination obtusely angled or rectangular. Postclypeus with evanescent median carina. Rostrum reaching or not reaching hind coxae.

Thorax: Hind margin of pronotum obtusely angled. Mesonotum with evanescent or well­developed carinae. Forewing 3.3–3.7 times longer than wide; costa with 0–6 tubercles; 9 apical cells.

Male genitalia: Anal tube as in Figs 47F–H; pygophore and genital styles as in Figs 47I–J. Aedeagus ( Figs 47K–L): Phallotheca with two short, rounded spines (a, b) left lateral; a flattened, serrated spine (c) ventral; a long, slender spine (d) ventral; a large, flattened, grossly serrated spine (e) shaped like cup in ventral view; a long, flattened spine (f) dorsal; a very long, flattened, bifurcated spine (g) right lateral; and a very small spine (h) dorsal below midlength. Flagellum sclerotised with one or two spines.
