Corynoneura zempoala sp. n.

( Fig. 35)

Type material. Holotype male, MEXICO, Morelos, Parque Nacional Lagunas de Zempoala, Laguna de Zempoala , 24.ix.1998, net, T. Andersen et al., G. Ramirez prep., ZMBN n° chi 20096 . Paratypes: eleven males same data as holotype but ZMBN n° 20088–20095 and n°20097–20099 .

Etymology. This species is named after the type locality in Mexico. The specific epithet is treated as a noun in apposition.

Diagnostic characters. Corynoneura zempoala sp. n., is similar to the C. scutellata group of species as defined by Hirvenoja and Hirvenoja (1988). This species has gonostylus with a basal lobus as C. scutellata . The antenna with 10 flagellomeres, AR about 0.72–0.76, the median pointed sternapodeme, the shape of the aedeagal lobus and gonocoxite without inferior volsella segregate this species from other species of the group.

Description

Male (n = 3)

Total length 1.46–1.58 mm. Wing length 1.05–1.07 mm.

Color. Thorax brownish. Abdominal tergites brownish, TVII usually with posteromedian white area. Legs light brown.

Head. AR = 0.72–0.76. Antenna with 10 flagellomeres, apical flagellomere 240–255 µm ( Fig. 35 A). Flagellomeres with more than one row of setae each. Eyes pubescent.

Thorax. Antepronotal lobes dorsal slightly tapering.

Wing. Clavus/wing length 0.29–0.31. Anal lobe absent ( Fig. 35 C).

Legs. Hind tibial scale 25–37 µm long, with one small seta curved ( Fig. 35 B).

Hypopygium ( Figs 35 D, E). Tergite IX with about 10 small setae. Laterosternite IX with 3 setae. Superior and inferior volsella absent. Aedeagal lobe triangular, rounded apically. Sternapodeme triangular pointed. Phallapodeme strongly curved, attached on posterolateral third to sternapodeme. Gonostylus apically thin and curved, with a hyaline basal lobus, sometimes difficult to see.
