( Figs 10–11 View Figs 10–17 , 19, 41, 51)

Hyoidea lopezcoloni Baena & Günther, 2001: 82   (original description)

Type locality. Spain, Madrid province, Rivas-Vaciamadrid, Cerro del Telegrafo.

Type material examined. PARATYPES: SPAIN: MADRID: Torres de la Alameda , 40.408°N 3.364°W, 10 May 1997, L. Arnaiz and P. Bercedo, 1 ♀ (AMNH_PBI 00337185) ( NHMM) GoogleMaps   ; 21 May 1997, L. Arnaiz and P. Bercedo, 1 J (AMNH_PBI 00337184) ( NHMM)   .

Redescription. Male: Small-sized, 3.6–4.0 mm (according to BAENA & GÜNTHER 2001). COLOURATION ( Fig. 10 View Figs 10–17 ): Brown. Head: Clypeus brown, with big black longitudinal spot at base and two black lateral stripes extending from base to apex of clypeus, all spots largely confluent; mandibular and maxillary plates pale with darkened apices; frons with large, black, not confluent stripes radiating from midline and several small black spots near eyes; vertex with two large, black, not confluent spots; frons and vertex in some specimens with dark brown minute spots; antenna dark brown to black, or antennal segment II basally brown, apically black; labium brown to dark brown, apex of segment IV black. Thorax: Anterior part of pronotum dirty yellowish; calli densely covered with largely confluent black spots or entirely black; disc brown, basally somewhat darkened, with pale stripe along midline and basal edging; in some specimens disc at base with dark brown minute spots; scutellum with more or less expressed pale midline; thoracic pleurites pale with reddish tinge, and darkened propleural suture. Hemelytron: Clavus, corium and cuneus uniformly pale brown. Legs: Brown with reddish tinge, femora with a series of minute, partly confluent dark brown spots running along posterior margin at base and apically extending to anterior margin. Abdomen: Dorsally brown, ventrally pale brown. SURFACE AND VESTITURE: Smooth, without punctures; disc distinctly rugose; vestiture composed of intermixed simple setae and silvery scales; simple setae pale on head and pronotum, brown on hemelytron. STRUCTURE: Head: Vertex 2.6 × as wide as eye; antennal segment I 0.3 × as long as width of head; antennal segment II 1.2 × as long as width of head and 1.1 × as long as width of pronotum. Thorax: Pronotum 1.7 × as wide as long and 1.1 × as wide as head. GENITALIA: Genital capsule with large tooth on left side of genital opening; sensory lobe of left paramere apically serrate and turned towards apical process, caudal process slender, with apical denticles ( Fig. 41 View Figs 40–44 ); left spicule and both branches of right spicule nearly equal in length; left spicule wide, with serrate margin; one branch of right spicule thin, another slightly widened apically, both with apical serration ( Fig. 51 View Figs 49–52 ).

Female: Small-sized, 3.6–4.5 mm (according to BAENA & GÜNTHER 2001). COLOURATI- ON ( Fig. 11 View Figs 10–17 ), SURFACE AND VESTITURE: As in male. STRUCTURE: Larger than male, with larger interocular distance, vertex 3.3 × as wide as eye; antennal segment I 0.3 × as long as width of head; antennal segment II 1.0 × as long as width of head and 0.9 × as long as width of pronotum; pronotum 1.8 × as wide as long and 1.2 × as wide as head; abdomen larger than in male and usually partly extending beyond apex of membrane; membrane reaching at least base of segment IX.

Differential diagnosis. Distinguished by the following combination of characters: dark minute spots on dorsum absent; two black spots on vertex not confluent ( Figs 10–11 View Figs 10–17 ); simple setae pale on head and pronotum, somewhat darkened on hemelytron; silvery scales short and oval; genital capsule with large tooth on left side of genital opening; sensory lobe of left paramere apically serrate and turned towards apical process, caudal process slender, with apical denticles ( Fig. 41 View Figs 40–44 ); left spicule and both branches of right spicule equal in length; left spicule wide, with serrate lateral margin; one branch of right spicule thin, another slightly widened apically, both with apical serration ( Fig. 51 View Figs 49–52 ). Most similar to dark forms of H. notaticeps   in the body size, length of the antennal segment I, and colouration, but differs in the shape of spicules of aedeagus and straight sensory lobe of the left paramere.

Host associations. BAENA & GÜNTHER (2001) have reported the host plant is Ephedra fragilis Desf.   as the host of this species.

Distribution. This species is only known from the type locality, Madrid Prov., Spain (Fig. 19) ( BAENA & GÜNTHER 2001).
