Description

Male (Fig. 18): 8-15 mm. Head (Fig. 18b): antenna: first flagellomere dark brown on lower 2/3, turning to a slightly lighter 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 yellow, and haired; fronto-orbital plate, parafacial and gena silver pollinose. Thorax (Fig. 18a, c): entirely gray pollinose; dorsum of thorax, sternopleura, hypopleura, and pteropleura yellow-white pilose; 3 postsutural supra-alar bristles; 2 katepisternal bristles; postpronotum and anepisternum bearing fine, yellow-white hairs; underside of scutellum bearing a tuft of white hairs near basal marginal bristle. Legs: fore femur gray pollinose; mid and hind femora dark brown to black in ground color, contrasting with the dark orange tibiae; fore femur with fine white hairs. Wings: smoky gray, with a slight, smoky amber infuscation delineating each vein. Abdomen (Fig. 18a): ventral surface of abdomen yellow-white pollinose; median marginal bristles on all abdominal tergites (ST1+2, T3, T4, and T5); 2 pairs of median discal bristles on T3, anteriormost pair 1/2 the diameter of posteriormost pair; 1 pair of median discal bristles on T4 and T5; ground color of abdomen orange-brown up to tergite 5, where it darkens to brown-black; silver pollinosity covering anteriormost half of T3, T4 and T5; ST1+2 with lateral gray pollinose spots on posterior half. Terminalia (Fig. 18d, e, f): sternite 5 with two small lobes, inner margin covered in dense pollinosity appearing darker than surrounding cuticle, apical edges of lobe of sternite 5 bearing short, stout bristles interspersed with longer bristles close to apical margin; sternite 5 with a wide V-shaped median cleft, 0.46X length of sternite from lobe apex to base; cercus sharply pointed and distinctly tapered; apical section 1.7X as long as upper lobe; surstylus equilaterally oblong and scythe-like in lateral view; posterodorsal half of surstylus haired, apex with few short bristles but otherwise almost bare; tips of surstyli with a slight lobe when viewed dorsally; strongly angled inwards; 1.4X as long as cercus.

Female: no female specimen was available to us for study.

Diagnosis

Uramya sibinivora  can be distinguished from all other Neotropical species of Uramya  by the following combination of traits: conspicuous white pilosity covering the katepisternum, meron, and anepimeron, ventral surface of abdomen, dorsum of the thorax, scutellum white pilose, only one pair of median discal bristles on T3, and the shape of the surstylus.

Distribution

Costa Rica: ACG (Provs. Alajuela and Guanacaste), 280-1,080 m; Paraguay: Guairá, Villarica; Venezuela: Edo. Nueva Esparta, El Valle.

Ecology

Within the context of the ACG inventory, Uramya sibinivora  has been reared 6 times from Parasa wellesca  Dyar and Euclea mesoamericana  Corrales & Epstein ( Limacodidae  ).
