Diagnosis

Clistopyga orellanae sp. nov. can be distinguished from all other species of the C. chaconi species group with known males by the combination of the following characters: propodeum and metapleuron entirely orange ( Fig. 10 View Fig. 10 A); tergite I orange and black ( Fig. 10 View Fig. 10 A); face with very fine and sparse setiferous punctures ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A); first flagellomere about 6.7 times as long as wide. C. orellanae sp. nov. resembles females of C. misionensis sp. nov. and C. rondoniae sp. nov. in colouration and structure. It is close to C. misionensis sp. nov. by possessing hyaline wings with a yellowish tint, mesosoma orange, hind coxa dorsally white, ventrally dark brown to black ( Fig. 10 View Fig. 10 A), occipital carina moderately raised, forming a flat dorsomedial flange, slightly upcurved posteriorly and epicnemial carina weak and ending considerably below level of centre of pronotum. However, it differs in having the face with very fine and sparse setiferous punctures, clypeal suture strongly curved ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A) and tergites IV–VI with the dark brown area not extending backward laterally into the white posterior band ( Fig. 10 View Fig. 10 A). On the other hand, it is close to C. rondoniae sp. nov. by possessing mesonotum orange, hind coxa dorsally white, ventrally dark brown to black, tergites IV–VI with the dark brown area not extending laterally backward on the posterior white band ( Fig. 10 View Fig. 10 A) and clypeal suture strongly curved ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A). However, it differs in having hyaline wings with a yellowish tint, face with very fine and sparse setiferous punctures ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A), epicnemial carina present and occipital carina forming a flat dorsomedial flange, slightly upcurved posteriorly.

Etymology

The name of the species refers to the area where the holotype was collected, Department of Orellana, Ecuador.

Description

Male

MEASUREMENTS. Body length 9 mm. Fore wing length 6 mm.

HEAD. In dorsal view, strongly narrowed behind eyes. Gena smooth and shiny, with sparse, moderately long setae ventrally, in dorsal view 0.4 times as long as eye, in frontal view straight and moderately constricted below eyes ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A). Frons smooth and shiny, with a weak medial longitudinal depression. Vertex smooth and shiny, with very isolated setiferous punctures. Posterior ocellus separated from eye about 0.7 times its maximum diameter. Distance between hind ocelli about 0.9 times maximum diameter of posterior ocellus. Occipital carina moderately raised, forming a relatively short, flat dorsomedial flange, slightly upcurved posteriorly. Occiput in dorsal view straight. Face with very fine and sparse setiferous punctures. Clypeal suture strongly curved. Clypeus about 1.7 times as broad as long medially. Malar space about 0.8 times as long as basal mandibular width ( Fig. 11 View Fig. 11 A).Antenna with 33 flagellomeres, first flagellomere about 6.7 times as long as wide.

MESOSOMA. Pronotum shiny, mostly smooth, with very fine and sparse setiferous punctures in upper posterior part. Epomia absent. Mesoscutum entirely smooth and shiny, median lobe anteriorly with very few, shallow and sparse setiferous punctures, posterior end of median lobe not prominent. Notauli weak, reaching about 0.4 of length of mesoscutum. Mesopleuron shiny, mostly smooth, with very sparse and fine setiferous punctures except in dorsal and lateral posterior part. Epicnemial carina weak, its dorsal end weakly curved backward, ending moderately far from anterior margin of mesopleuron, considerably below level of centre of pronotum. Metapleuron smooth and shiny, with fine and sparse setiferous punctures on dorsal posterior part, about 1.7 times as long as deep. Propodeum smooth and shiny, with sparse and fine setiferous punctures laterally; in dorsal view about 1.0 times as long as medially wide. Propodeal spiracle situated immediately above groove separating propodeum and metapleuron. Hind leg with femur 3.85 times as long as deep, about 0.8 times as long as tibia. Fore wing with vein Cu-a opposite Rs & M. Vein 2 rs-m clearly shorter than half length of abscissa of M between 2 rs-m and 2 m-cu. Abscissa of Cu 1 between 1 m-cu and Cu 1 a about 3.0 times as long as Cu 1 b. Hind wing with vein cu-a about 0.3 times as long as abscissa of Cu 1 between M and cu-a; vein cu-a + abscissa of Cu 1 between M and cu-a slightly reclivous. Vein Cu 1 distinctly pigmented.

METASOMA. Tergite I about 1.85 times as long as posteriorly broad, smooth and shiny, with very fine, sparse setiferous punctures laterally; spiracle near its basal 0.35; lateromedian longitudinal carinae strong, reaching about 0.4 of length of tergite; lateral longitudinal carina absent. Sternite I extending back about 0.55 of length of tergite. Tergite II about 1.25 times as long as posteriorly broad, central region shiny, with isolated fine setiferous punctures; rest of tergites shiny, somewhat more densely punctate.

COLOURATION. Body primarily orange, black and white ( Figs 10 View Fig. 10 A, 11 A). Antenna brownish, pallid towards base of external side including pedicel, distal rim of scape yellow. Head with vertical and frontal orbits, face, clypeus, base of mandible and ventral part of gena white; rest of frons and vertex, upper part of gena and occiput black. Palpi orange. Mesosoma entirely orange except dorsal posterior border of propodeum black. Tegula orange. Wings hyaline with a slightly yellow tint, pterostigma brown. Fore legs orange. Mid leg mostly orange, with distal part of tarsomeres dark brown. Hind leg mostly black, with coxa dorsally, trocantellus, central and distal bands of femur, wide band in middle of tibia and proximal part of tarsal segments white. Metasoma dark brown to black, anterior corners of tergites I–IV and posterior band of tergites I–VII white; posterior corners of tergites I–III with black spots; anterior part of tergite I tinged with orange.
