Description

Male (Fig. 15): 15 mm. Head (Fig. 15b): antenna: first flagellomere dark brown on lower 2/3,turning to brownish orange on upper third and adjacent to pedicel; pedicel dark orange; arista 1.5X as long as first flagellomere, dark brown and minutely pubescent; palpus dark orange and haired; fronto-orbital plate, parafacial and gena silver pollinose; gena silver pollinose with a cluster of hairs along lower 1/3 to 1/2; facial ridge darkened, with few fine hairs along lower margin; frontogenal suture black. Thorax (Fig. 15a, c): entirely gray pollinose; dorsum of thorax and scutellum black pilose; sternopleura, hypopleura, pteropleura, and ventral surface of abdomen yellow-white pilose; 2 katepisternal bristles; 2 postsutural supra-alar bristles; postpronotum and anepisternum bearing fine black hairs; underside of scutellum bearing a tuft of black hairs near basal marginal bristle. Legs: fore femur gray pollinose, densely covered in thin dark hairs interspersed among the bristles; mid and hind tibiae dark brown to black basally, apically dark orange. Wings: smoky gray, with dense infuscation around each vein. Abdomen (Fig. 15a): median marginal bristles only on ST1+2; 2 pairs of median discal bristles on T3 and T4; ground color of abdomen brown-black up to tergite 5; silver pollinosity present on anteriormost half of T3, T4 and T5; ST1+2 with lateral gray pollinose spots on posterior half; band of short black hairs surrounding discal bristles on T3 and T4, abdomen otherwise appearing devoid of hairs. Terminalia (Fig. 15d, e, f): sternite 5 with two small lobes; inner margin covered in dense pollinosity, appearing darker than surrounding cuticle; apical edges of lobes of sternite 5 bearing many medium-length, stout bristles interspersed with longer bristles close to apical margin; sternite 5 with wide V-shaped median cleft, 0.42X length of sternite from lobe apex to base; cercus sharply pointed, distinctly tapered; apical section of cercus 1.4X as long as upper lobe; strongly curved when viewed laterally with a slight upward hook at its tip; surstylus oblong, curved and scythe-like in lateral view; posterodorsal half of surstylus haired, apex with almost no short apical bristles; tip of surstylus not lobed when viewed dorsally; surstylus strongly angled inwards, 1.4X as long as cercus.

Female (Fig. 16): 10-12 mm. As male, except arista 1.7X as long as first flagellomere, abdomen normally haired, median marginals present on segments ST1+2, T3, T4, and T5, and median discal bristles on T3, T4, and T5.

Diagnosis

Uramya pannosa   can be distinguished from all other Neotropical species of Uramya   by the following combination of traits: pedicel orange, 2 postsutural supra-alar bristles, underside of scutellum with a tuft of black hairs near basal marginal bristle, overall absence of abdominal hairs, only 1 pair of median marginal bristles on ST1+2, and 2 pairs of median discal bristles on T3 and T4.

Etymology

The species epithet is derived from the Latin adjective " pannosus ", meaining tattered or shabby, in reference to the irregular and ragged appearance of the abdominal banding.

Distribution

Costa Rica, ACG (Prov. Guanacaste), 900-1220 m.

Ecology

Uramya pannosa   has been reared 5 times from Parasa macrodonta   Hering & Hopp ( Limacodidae   ) in both cloud and rain forest, and is the only species of tachinid to have been reared from this species of caterpillar in 166 non-sibling rearings.
