Discussion

Remarks. Sasa & Okazawa (1991) described Ablabesmyia jogancornua, based only on a single male specimen, and noted (p. 65), “Gonocoxite with 3 pairs of basal lobes, the dorsal lobe brush-like and short; the middle lobe 1.5 times as long as the ventral lobe, horn-like and simple (left) or with apical brush (right); the ventral lobe also horn-like, twice as long as the dorsal lobe, and with apical brush.” Reexamination of the holotype has revealed that the dorsal, the middle and the ventral lobes are interpreted as the dorsal lobe, the aedeagal blade and the lateral lobe, respectively, as defined by Roback (1971), and that the aedeagal blades have no brush apically, and that the lateral lobe is elongate with weak serrations along the inner margin. This species most resembles the species illustrated by Kobayashi & Kubota (2002, fig. 13) under the name of A. (A.) longistyla, in the features of the aedeagal complex, especially the evident lateral lobe. However, real A. (A.) longistyla differs from A. jogancornua in the straight aedeagal blade and the inconspicuous lateral lobe (see Fittkau 1962, fig. 396; Pinder 1978, fig. 81 A; Cranston & Judd 1989, figs 6, 7). Kobayashi & Kubota (l. c.) might have a poor understanding of the structure of the aedeagal complex. Thus the species is valid as a member of Ablabesmyia s. str. Ablabesmyia (A.) jogancornua shares several features with members of the A. (A.) simpsoni species group. The adult aedeagal complex has a fringed dorsal lobe and a more or less distinct lateral lobe, and in the larval posterior parapod the small claw is not curved sharply (Roback 1985). The species, however, do not belong to the A. (A.) simpsoni species group, because of the larval maxillary palp with a basal segment subdivided into four parts. The adult male of A. (A.) jogancornua is similar to that of the North American species A. (A.) janta (Roback) in the aedeagal blade curved and pointed apically and the dentate lateral lobe. However these species are separable from one another. In A. (A.) jogancornua the lateral lobe has a dentate inner margin, whereas, in A. (A.) janta it is pectinate distally. The latter species belongs to the A. (A.) rhamphe species group (Roback 1985), and the larval maxillary palp has a basal segment subdivided into three parts.
