Description. Holotype ♂. Body length 4.2 mm.

Diagnosis. Palpus brown on basal half, dark yellow on distal half. Tergite 6 approximately half length of syntergosternite 7+8; syntergosternite 7+8 with whitish rounded spot without sclerotization. Epandrium with subrounded slightly darker area medially.

Head ( Figs 46–48 View FIGURES46–51 ). Frontal pruinosity velvety brown, with somewhat evanescent dorsal vitta projecting laterally to ocellar triangle reaching vertex area ( Fig. 47 View FIGURES46–51 ). Height 1.8X the length; width 1.27X the height. Frons 1.4 wider than long. Fronto-orbital plate with gray-yellowish pruinosity in frontal view ( Fig. 47 View FIGURES46–51 ). Antenna with arista yellowish on basal half ( Fig. 48 View FIGURES46–51 ). Genal groove area brown to dark yellow, bare, large; gena predominantly gray-yellowish pruinose; postgena brown pruinose ( Fig. 48 View FIGURES46–51 ) with dark brown spot near eye margin. Palpus brown on basal half, dark yellow on distal half.

Thorax ( Fig. 49 View FIGURES46–51 ). Mesonotum dark brown to black with a faint gray pruinose stripe between dorsocentral setae, almost reaching third dorsocentral setae pair, more distinct when seen under anterior incident light. Scutellum dark brown; in dorsal view with inconspicuous gray pruinosity when seen under anterior incident light. Legs ( Fig. 46 View FIGURES46–51 ). Coxae and femora light brown. Tibiae and tarsi dark yellow to light brown. Wing ( Fig. 50 View FIGURES46–51 ). Hyaline; length 3.8 mm, width 1.4 mm, 2.7X longer than wide.

Abdomen ( Fig. 51 View FIGURES46–51 ). Male terminalia. Tergite 6 approximately half length of syntergosternite 7+8 ( Figs 52– 53 View FIGURES 52–56 ); syntergosternite 7+8 with whitish rounded spot. Epandrium with scattered setae on posterior half; with subrounded dark area medially ( Fig. 53 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Cercus apparently shorter than epandrium, with sparse setae on anterior margin and outer surface ( Fig. 52–53 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Hypandrium 3X longer than epandrium ( Figs 52, 54 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Phallapodeme 2.33X longer than hypandrium ( Figs 52–54 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Basiphallus with about half length of distiphallus ( Figs 52–54 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Distiphallus suboval in ventral view, somewhat truncate distally ( Figs 53–55 View FIGURES 52–56 ). In ventral view pregonite with distal mesial keel subrounded; postgonite as a small thin sclerite ( Figs 54–55 View FIGURES 52–56 ). Gonocoxal apodemes upward directed, distinctly downcurved at fusion area when seen from posterior view ( Fig. 56 View FIGURES 52–56 ).

Female. Unknown
