Type species

Agathacrista winloni Sharkey, sp. n.

Diagnosis

Interantennal space with longitudinal keel that is sharply declivous posteriorly (Figs 3b, 7d); ocelli elevated above surface of vertex; fore tibia with pegs (Fig. 3a); third metasomal median tergite lacking sculpture; basal lobe of tarsal claws large and right angled or slightly acute (Fig. 7a); fore wing partly or completely pigmented; hind wing vein CUb absent. Some members of a few other genera of Agathidini have a sharp keel between the antennae, but none of these have pegs on the fore tibia.

Description

Head. Lateral carina on frons (as in members of Alabagrus) absent; interantennal space with longitudinal keel that is sharply declivous posteriorly (Figs 3b, 7d); ocelli elevated above surface of vertex; gena not extended ventroposteriorly into sharp prominence (Fig. 6a); gena lacking sharp angle posteriad of eye; labial palpus with 4 segments, third segment less than ½ as long as apical segment; apical antennomere acute but lacking nipple-like process. Mesosoma. Propleuron convex ventrally but lacking a sharp bump; notauli impressed and pitted, at least in part (Fig. 6c); posteroscutellar depression absent but sculpture usually present in this area; propodeum rugose to areolate-rugose (Fig. 7g); sclerite between hind coxal cavities and metasomal foramen complete, its ventral margin situated ventral to dorsal margin of hind coxal cavities. Legs. Fore tibia with pegs (Fig. 3a); all tarsal claws with strong basal lobe and with right-angled or slightly acute angle (Fig. 7a). Wings. (Figs 6d, 8b). Fore wing RS+M vein mostly absent; second submarginal cell triangular; fore wing 3RSb straight and strong throughout; hind wing r and r-m cross veins absent; hind wing vein CUb absent; fore wing partially or completely pigmented, with yellow or melanic color. Metasoma. First median tergite longitudinally striate, with a slightly stronger pair of lateral striae and a medial stria (Fig. 7h, 8e), rarely striae reduced and sculpture mostly weakly rugose (see couplet 1 in the identification key); second median tergite with an elevated semi-circular area separated from the remainder of the tergite by a shallow groove (Fig. 8e); second median tergite from smooth to striate, usually smooth anteriorly with a few longitudinal striae in posterior half; median tergite 3 smooth; length of ovipositor rather uniform, as long as (Fig. 5) or slightly longer than body (Fig. 8c).

Distribution

Restricted to the eastern Palearctic (Taiwan) and the Oriental region. For a distribution map, click here.

Etymology:

From the Greek agathis, meaning “ball of thread”, and the Latin crista, meaning “crest”. Crest is in reference to the ridge between the antennal insertions. The gender is feminine.
