Phylloicus hansoni Denning, 1983   in Denning et al. 1983:184 [Type locality: Trinidad, Simla Research Station; CAS; male]. — Botosaneanu & Flint 1982:24 [larva, as P. angustior   ]. — Botosaneanu & Alkins­Koo 1993:38 [as synonym of P. angustior   ].

Phylloicus hansoni   is similar to P. quitacalzon   , but is distinguished by the bi­lobed mesal coremata — ( Fig. 55F View FIGURE 55 ).

Adult. Forewing length 9­11.1 mm, n = 178.

Head dark brown. Maxillary palps dark brown. Antenna twice forewing length; dark brown, with narrow patches of pale sensilla on anteromesal surface of each flagellomere, basal segments with pale setae posteriorly. Dorsal pterothorax dark brown; ventrolateral thorax golden brown. Femora golden brown; foretibiae golden brown; mesotibiae golden brown; metatibiae dark brown; tarsi dark brown. Metathoracic leg of male with posterior fringe of long setae, setae dark. Tibial spur formula 2,4,4. Forewing flat; dark brown; with two transverse bands; proximal band ivory; distal band ivory, beginning at anterior wing margin, at least 1/2 width of wing; with single basal stripe, ivory. Hind wing basal brush present in male, dark brown.

Male. Preterminalic abdominal terga with anteromesal notch. Corematic structures present. Tergum IV with expanded lateral flanges, mesal coremata and lateral coremata; lateral coremata with basal globose lobes and long tubular posterior lobe; mesal coremata bilobed, mesal lobe wider at base and tapered apically, lateral lobe digitate. Tergum V without sclerotized modifications ( Fig. 55F View FIGURE 55 ). Sternum VII with short, acute anteromesal process. Sternum VIII enclosing base of elongate sternum IX; posteromesal process notched, notch deep and round ( Fig. 55A, C View FIGURE 55 ). Tergum IX deeply notched anteriorly, margins of notch ridged; posterior margin with round narrow mesal projection; thinly sclerotized anteromesally ( Fig. 55B View FIGURE 55 ); lateral ridge absent; dorsal pleural setae approximately 5, ventral pleural setae approximately 10 ( Fig. 55A View FIGURE 55 ). Preanal appendage at least 11/2 times length of tergum X, widest apically, setae filamentous, longer than appendage ( Fig. 55A, B View FIGURE 55 ). Tergum X without basal lobes; basodorsal process short and digitate; basolateral processes long, length at least twice diameter; apex, in lateral view, truncate, in dorsal view, entire or notched, notch shallow; with paired rounded apicolateral projections ( Fig. 55A, B View FIGURE 55 ). Harpago short, rounded; peglike setae few, apical ( Fig. 55A, C View FIGURE 55 ). Phallotremal sclerites average size, longest dimension less than diameter of phallobase; dorsal sclerite ovoid, in dorsal view horseshoe­shaped ( Fig. 55D, E View FIGURE 55 ).

Female. Preterminal abdominal terga with anteromesal notch. Sternum VII with short pointed anteromesal process. Tergum VIII without posterolateral brush; sternum VIII posterior margin entire; sternum VIII ( Fig. 56C View FIGURE 56 ). Tergum IX without mesal ridge ( Fig. 56B View FIGURE 56 ). Sternum IX anterior and posterior lobes darkly sclerotized and striate, with patch of lightly sclerotized cuticle lateral to vaginal opening ( Fig. 56A View FIGURE 56 ). Tergum X appendage shorter than mesal lobe, base marked by faint suture line, apex rounded; mesal lobe lightly sclerotized; digitate lateral processes absent ( Fig. 56B View FIGURE 56 ). Sternum X with patches of short fine setae posterolaterally to anal opening ( Fig. 56A View FIGURE 56 ). Vaginal apparatus anterior and posterior sclerites equal in length; anterior sclerite rounded anteriorly, posterolateral projections absent; posterior sclerite triangular ( Fig. 56A View FIGURE 56 ).
