Schizoptera (Odontorhagus) repetita McAtee and Malloch, 1925  

( Figs 3 View FIGURE 3 and 7)

Schizoptera (Odontorhagus) repetita McAtee and Malloch 1925: 67   , 17 (orig. descr.).

Diagnosis. Distinguished among species of Schizoptera (Odontorhagus)   by the broadly ovoid body shape, the prominent fuscous patch covering more than 1/2 of the wing membrane, and the thin, tomahawk-shaped process of the subgenital plate.

Holotype: GUATEMALA: Izabal: Livingston , 15.8333 ° N 88.75 ° W, 0 4 May 1906, Schwarz & Barber, Holotype, 1Ƌ (00028606) ( USNM) GoogleMaps   .

Re-description. Male: length: 1.5 mm; body broadly ovoid. COLORATION: general coloration dark brown; fuscous patch absent covering more than 1/2 of wing membrane; Sc+C distinctly lighter than remainder of hemelytra ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ). SURFACE AND VESTITURE: as in subgeneric description. STRUCTURE: HEAD: slightly rounded in ventral view ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ); eyes about 1/3 as wide as synthlipsis. THORAX: as in subgeneric description; hemelytron as in subgeneric description; M2 vein straight, anterior membranal cell triangular. ABDOMEN: as in subgeneric description; stVI with small, tooth-like process on posterior margin; subgenital plate weakly asymmetrical; process of subgenital thin and tomahawk-shaped.

Female: Unknown.

Distribution. Known only from the type locality ( Fig. 7).

Discussion. No specimens examined matched the description of this species, ventral images of the holotype are available, but the pointmout obscures the process of the subgenital plate; therefore our re-description is solely somatic. For an illustration of the subgenital plate of this species see McAtee and Malloch (1925) Figure 61.
