Notes:
Female. - Length 12,8 mm. Front, subcallus, and first antennal segment shining black. Front 0.5 mm. wide at vertex, 0.9 mm. at frontal callus. Frontal callus slightly raised but not sharply separated from the broad dorsal extension which covers all but the vertex and a very narrow space next to the eyes. First antennal segment swollen as in other species, with black hair, particularly below; second segment dull black with a small distinct dorsal point; third segment missing. Face and cheeks velvety, chocolate brown with black hair. Second palpal segment black with black hair, selnder. Humeral and antealar calli and top of mesopleurites chocolate brown with black hair. Rest of body and legs black. Wings deep black anterior to the middle of cell R 5, dilute black posterior to this, with usual apical hyaline spot running from the tip of vein R4, in a curve to half way between the apex of the wing ad the tip of vein R5 and then in a very slender, tapering line along the margin of the wing to the tip of vein R5. Tibiae all swollen, shiny black. Type Female. Guayaquil, Ecuador. Francisco Campos, No. 182. U. S. National Museum Cat. No. 50314. The entirely black pile of the whole insect will separate this from all previously described species.
