Hypopygium description ( Figs. 109–112View FIGURES 109 – 112). Hypopygium light brown. Epandrium extensively covered with microtrichia, with small proximal lateral areas bare; epandrial dorsal suture absent, left suture present. Left epandrial process dorsally setose, with apex setulose, and subepandrial group of about four large setae near base. Right epandrial projection with few subepandrial setulae. Hypoproct with four setae. Right lobe of hypandrium without projections.

Geographical distribution. Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama and United States.

Comments. The hypopygium of Coniceromyia pilipleura  is nearly identical to that of C. sakaii  . Both species have a characteristic (possibly apomorphic) wing venation, a thick anteroapical process of the foremetatarsus, and small foretibia dorsal setae. The long and swollen costal vein is a feature also shared by C. sakaii  , C. cubensis  and C. laticosta  .
