Description

Male (Fig. 3). Length: 9-14 mm. Head (Fig. 3b): antenna: medial surface of first flagellomere dark orange along upper margin, closest to pedicel; pedicel black; arista 1.5X as long as first flagellomere, dark brown and minutely pubescent; palpus dark yellow, haired; fronto-orbital plate, parafacial and gena silver pollinose; gena bearing few fine hairs along lower margin. Thorax (Fig. 3a, c): entirely silver pollinose; dorsum of thorax and scutellum with conspicuous yellow-white hairs covering surface; sternopleura, hypopleura, pteropleura and ventral surface of abdomen yellow-white pilose; 2 katepisternal bristles; 3 postsutural supra-alar bristles; postpronotum bearing fine black hairs and anepisternum with fine yellow-white hairs; scutellum bearing 1 pair of discal bristles; underside of scutellum bearing a tuft of white hairs near basal marginal bristle. Legs: reddish-yellow in ground color; femur covered in long yellow hairs interspersed among darker hairs and bristles; tarsus all black. Wings: smoky gray translucent; wing veins not infuscate. Abdomen (Fig. 3a): 1 pair of median marginal bristles on ST1+2 and T3; row of marginal bristles on T4 and T5; median discal bristles on T3, T4 and T5; abdomen brown-orange dorsally, with silver pollen on anterior half of T3, T4 and T5; underside of abdomen pale pilose and entirely covered in silver pollinosity. Terminalia (Fig. 3d, e, f): sternite 5 consisting of two small lobes; inner margin covered in dense pollinosity appearing darker than surrounding cuticle; apical edges of lobes of sternite 5 bearing many long, stout, outwardly pointing bristles interspersed with longer bristles close to anterior margin; sternite 5 with wide V-shaped median cleft 0.34X the length of the sternite from lobe apex to base; cercus sharply pointed and distinctly tapered; apical section subequal in length to upper lobe of cercus; slightly curved when viewed laterally, with a slight upward hook at its tip; surstylus oblong, curved and scythe-like in lateral view; posterodorsal half haired, with few short apical bristles; tip of surstylus not lobed when viewed dorsally; in dorsal view, surstylus angled inwards and 1.3X as long as cercus.

Female (Fig. 4). Length: 7-10 mm. As male, except wing smoky translucent amber color and wing veins slightly infuscate; ground color of abdomen as in male except T5 all black and tergal margins appearing yellow on ventral surface.

Diagnosis

Uramya albosetulosa  can be distinguished from all other Neotropical species of Uramya  by the following combination of traits: dark brown to black antennae, 3 postsutural supra-alar bristles, underside of scutellum with a tuft of white hairs near basal marginal bristle, 1 pair of median marginal bristles on ST1+2 and T3; T4 and T5 with a row of marginal bristles; underside of abdomen pale pilose and silver pollinose.

Etymology

The specific epithet is derived from the Latin adjective " albus ", for white, and the noun " seta ", for bristle, in reference to the tuft of white hairs present along the underside of the scutellum in this species.

Distribution

Costa Rica, ACG (Guanacaste and Alajuela Provinces), 340-600 m.

Ecology

Uramya albosetulosa  sp. nov. has been reared 35 times from Acharia sarans  (Dyar), Acharia hyperoche  Dognin and Acharia apicalis  (Dyar) ( Limacodidae  ), from 2,035 wild-caught mixed siblings and non-siblings found in both dry and rain forest.
