A New Species of Nemapalpus (Diptera; Psychodidae; Bruchomyiinae) from Northeastern Colombia

  • J. Bruce Alexander


Nemapalpus patriciae n.sp. is described and illustrated from male and female specimens collected at Arboledas, Northeastern Colombia. It is the first species of this widespread genus to be recorded from Colombia, and is the 26th Nemapalpus species to be described. On the basis of the structure of the male genitalia and presence of tufts of long setae on tergites 3-7, it is suggested that N. patriciae should be placed in the sziladyi species group.
