Diagnosis.

Ummidia rosillos   males can be differentiated from all geographically proximate species except U. audouini   by the presence of a brush on the retrolateral face of tarsus IV and from all geographically proximate species by the presence of a pale dorsal heart patch. Males dispersing July to September.
