Abaciscus lutosus sp. n

Abaciscus lutosus (holotype)

16mm. In facies this species resembles A. paucisignata but is duller, with the postmedial not so definitely zig-zag at the costal end, more diffuse. In the male genitalia the valves are more slender, the costa much straighter, the costal process not extending to the ventral margin. The uncus is monolobed rather than bilobed. The aedeagus has its distal band of sclerotisation lacking the lateral thorn seen in paucisignata.
