Remarks. These specimens are very similar to and indistinguishable externally from T. corticola   n.sp. There are only slight differences in structure of the male terminalia, namely in the shape of right surstylus and left epandrial lamella ( Fig. 4d,e View Fig ). We prefer not to rank these specimens as a separate species until a longer series is available and the range of variability is clear.
