Name

Disophrys strigata EnderleinWikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Disophrys strigata Enderlein 1920[1] [MZPW, type examined] Indonesia, Sumatra.
  • Disophrys macilifera van Achterberg and Long 2010[2] syn. n.[RMNH, type examined] Vietnam.

Diagnosis

The general color pattern and the wide crenulae on the notauli are sufficient to distinguish this species.

Notes

Van Achterberg and Long (2010)[2] described Disophrys maculifera as a distinct species based on the following distinctions. “Disophrys strigata differs by having the hind leg completely black (Disophrys maculifera has at least hind coxa, trochanter and trochantellus yellowish ventrally), fore coxa with a black patch, middle of mesopleuron and dorsal third of metapleuron and propodeum medially black (brownish-yellow in Disophrys maculifera).” Contrary to the preceding, the ventral surface of the hind coxa is yellow in the type of Disophrys strigata. However the major reason for synonymizing the two is that the Thai specimens are intermediate in coloration between the Vietnamese (Disophrys maculifera) and Sumatran (Disophrys strigata) specimens, which is what one would expect if they represent the same species. For example, the Thai specimens have yellow on the hind coxa and femur ventrally, agreeing with Disophrys maculifera, and the metasomal median tergites are entirely black, agreeing with Disophrys strigata.
This species is very similar to Disophrys insignis Roman, 1913 from the Philippines but differs in that the latter has much shallower notauli and the lateral carinae of the frons are much higher than those of Disophrys macilifera. They are undoubtedly closely related in that the pattern of the propodeal carinae is unlike those of other Disophrys. Normally the medial cell of the propodeum is greatly expanded anteriorly and laterally, however in these two species it is in the form of a small pentagon. The Thai specimens are somewhat darker than those of Vietnam.
