Wormaldia gabriella (Banks)   1930: 230, 231, pl. 12, fig. 14, male, California, USA (CAS) (in Dolophiliella   ); Betten 1934: 170 ( Dolophiliella   as subgenus of Dolophilus   ); Milne 1934 –1936: 82, 83 (as Dolophilus gabriella   ); Ross 1938c: 7, 8 (lectotype [ MCZ 16326 View Materials ] is male, as Dolophilus gabriella   ); Ross 1944: 292 (as Dolophilus gabriella   ); Ross 1949: 155, 156 (transferred to Wormaldia   ); Ross 1956: 42, 61, 65, fig. 84; Denning 1956a: 79; Denning 1956b: 248, fig. 10: 16C; Denning 1958: 93, figs. 4 A, B; Fischer 1961: 45; Fischer 1971: 190; Nimmo 1974: 316, 330, 333, 334, 336, 337, figs. 679 A–C, 770–779, 783; Schmid 1982: 31–33, 72 (map 15), figs. 146, 148, 149, 156, 157; Schmid 1991: 93; 1998: 45, 215, figs. 111–115; Armitage 1996: [work not paginated].

Ross (1949, 1956) and Armitage (1996) placed this species within the W. moesta   Group.

This species is closely related to W. lacerna Denning (1958)   and W. moesta ( Banks 1914)   . However, W. gabriella   can be distinguished from those species in the shapes of tergum VIII, sterna VIII and IX, and the inferior appendage. Tergum VIII in W. gabriella   is relatively straight posteriorly. Tergum VIII in W. lacerna   has a U-shaped emargination posteromesally; in W. moesta   it is slightly sinuous or slightly straight posteromesally. Sternum VIII in W. gabriella   has an elongate and triangular process posteromesally. Sternum VIII in W. lacerna   is slightly sinuous posteriorly with a convexity mesally; in W. moesta   it has an elongate and digitate process posteromesally. Sternum IX in W. gabriella   is convexly projected posteriorly with a small and Vshaped emargination mesally. Sternum IX in W. lacerna   is weakly projected convexly posteriorly with a shallow concavity mesally; in W. moesta   it has a slender and subtriangular process posteromesally. When viewed laterally, the apical segment of the inferior appendage in W. gabriella   and W. lacerna   is strongly elongate, longer than the basal segment, slightly concave dorsomedially, and with the apex extended and slightly projected posterodorsally. The apical segment of the inferior appendage in W. moesta   is elongate, equal in length to the basal segment, straight medially, and the apex is narrowest and truncately rounded.

Adult. Length of male forewing 6–8 mm (holotype: 7 mm). Head brown, with yellowish setae. Antenna long, slender, yellowish with small, brown and yellowish rings of small setae. Maxillary palps yellowish, with lighter setae. Labial palps yellowish, with lighter setae. Dorsum of thorax brown. Legs yellowish, with small, lighter setae. Forewing yellowish, covered with fine, small, brown setae, with apical forks II, III, IV, and V present ( Fig. 39; Schmid 1982: fig. 146, 1998: fig. 111). Hind wing translucent, with very few fine, small, brown setae, with apical forks II, III, and V present ( Fig. 40; Schmid 1982: fig. 146, 1998: fig. 111).

Male genitalia ( Figs. 34–38). Sternum VII with prominent, digitate posteromesal process strongly elongate, equal in length to sternum VIII, widely rounded apically. Tergum VIII relatively straight posteriorly. Sternum VIII with elongate, triangular, posteromesal process, about 0.3 times length of posteromesal process of sternum VII. Segment IX, when viewed dorsally, weakly concave anteriorly; when viewed laterally, nearly C-shaped in appearance, convex anteriorly, concave posteriorly; when viewed ventrally, concave anteriorly, convexly projected posteriorly with small and acute emargination mesally. Segment X, when viewed dorsally, triangularly elongate, slightly concave anteromedially, bulged preapically, narrowly rounded apically, with minute and knob-shaped projection apicomesally; when viewed laterally, slender, very slightly upcurved and produced apicodorsally. Superior appendages digitate; when viewed dorsally, parallel with segment X, stout, elongate, narrowly rounded apically; when viewed laterally, slender, tubularly elongate, nearly equal in length to segment X. Inferior appendages two segmented; when viewed laterally, basal segment broad, subrectangular, elongate, broadest and convex medially, apical segment, stout, rectangular, strongly elongate, longer (about 1.3 times) and narrower than basal segment, slightly concave and narrowest medially, produced and widely rounded posterodorsally; when viewed dorsally, apical segment subrectangularly elongate, narrowest and subovate posteriorly, with elongate and apicolateral patch of short, thin, black, stout, spine-shaped setae; when viewed ventrally, basal segments paired, united for about their anterior three-fifths, separated posteromesally by a narrow, deep, U-shaped emargination, each basal segment stout, broadest medially, with outer margin convexly curved anteromedially, apical segment as when viewed dorsally. Phallus, when viewed laterally, pistol-shaped, widest basally, tapering from middle to apex, membranous apically, very lightly sclerotized, with two visible, internal sclerites ( Fig. 38).
