Fig. 3b View FIGURE3

Mantispa (Trichoscelia) iridella Westwood, 1867: 503 . Lectotype, male, “Amazonia”, no specific locality (BMNH). Mantispa (Trichoscelia) basella Westwood, 1867: 504 . Holotype, male, “Amazonia”, no specific locality (OUM). Images studied.

Specimen examined. New record. Panama: Canal Zone : Albrook Forest Site, 30.4 m, black light trap, 28‒29.XI.1968, Hutton (1 ♂ — UAAM).

Diagnosis. Antenna piceous, wings completely hyaline, without marks; male genitalia with ectoproct ovoid in lateral view; sternite 9 spoon-shaped in lateral view, posterior margin produced into a short lobe, narrow and rounded in ventral view; gonocoxites 9 short, dorsally curved in lateral view, sinuous in ventral view, apically bifid; pseudopenis coiled, forming a single loop; gonarcus U-shaped.

Distribution. Brazil, Ecuador, Panama (Canal Zone), Trinidad ( Penny 1982).

Comments. This species had been reported for Brazil, Ecuador and Trinidad ( Penny 1982), here we register its presence in Panama. This small species of Trichoscelia is the most common one in the central Amazon region ( Penny 1982). Adults are present all year round, but in highest numbers in May. Individuals have generally been collected in or near primary forest, using light traps ( Penny 1982). Immature stages and other aspects of their biology remain unknown.
