Negritothripa aureata sp. n.


Negritothripa aureata

11mm. The basic pattern elements of the forewing are as in congeners but it is much more variegated: whitish in a lens along the costa, in a triangular zone basal to the antemedial, sandy whitish in a tornal spot and the patches on the dorsum, and darker golden greenish brown elsewhere. The fine fasciae and double-ringed reniform are conspicuous in the costal lens. The genitalia are very similar to those of confluens, but the rasp-like signum is much narrower.
