Biguembia mirador   n. sp. can be diStinguiShed from the other SpecieS of the genuS by the Shape of the Submentum ( Fig. 22 View FIGURES 21 – 26 ); 10R extremely globoSe; tipS of the 10Lp characteriStic of the genuS but quite Small (leSS than half of the width of 10Lp, inStead of longer than 10Lp).

Male holotype. General coloration light brown. FirSt 9° antennomereS browniSh yellow; meSothorax and metathorax lighter than the reSt of the body. Total length 5.97 mm.

Forewing length 4.82 mm; hindwing 4.10 mm. Wing VeinS Sc, R1, RS, Ma, Ma1, Cu and A conSpicuouS; Ma2 and Mp clearly not reaching the wing edge; Cua diffuSe. CroSS-VeinS in forewing aS followS, R1-RS: 3–5, RS-Ma1: 3, Ma-Mp: 1, Ma1-Ma2: 0–1. BaSitarSuS of hind leg narrow ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 21 – 26 ), length 0.27 mm, width/length = 0.30, medial bladder diameter/ baSitarSuS width 0.50 mm, medial bladder cloSe to the apex; 1 row of Setae on retrolateral face, 2–3 rowS on anterolateral face, 2 rowS on VentrobaSal face, 5–6 Setae between bladderS on retrolateral face ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 21 – 26 ).
