1 mm (n=9); tarsal claws bowed beyond midlength, and toothed; empodium reaching bend in claws (Figure 3).
1) head, frontal view; (2) 5th flagellomere; (3) tarsal claw and empodium.
Otras caracteristicas diagnosticas de los adultos fueron detalladas por WILCOX & PAPAVERO (1971) y GONZALEZ & CARREJO (1992) y son como sigue: vertex de la cabeza ligeramente o profundamente hendido; area ocular con uno o ningun ocelli palpos vestigiales; vena alar M1 curvada hacia el margen costal y la celda anal (cup) mas larga que la segunda celda basal (bm) (Figura 1); empodium
ausente o como cerda.
Tarsi I-III terminated with 2 claws and claw-like empodium
Leg: Light brown, setation predominantly white; pro, mes, and met coxa lightly grey pubescent, long white setose; met trochanter setose medially; femur light brown, met femur more-or-less cylindrical only slightly wider than pro and mes femur, in distal half without ventral macrosetae, posteroventrally long white, erect setose and setae arranged in distinct row; pro, mes, and met tibia straight, met tibia cylindrical, ventral keel absent, lateroposteriorly long white, erect setose and setae arranged in distinct row; pro and mes tarsomere 1 longer than tarsomere 2, but less than combined length of tarsomeres 2-3, met tarsomere 1 as long as combined length of tarsomeres 2-3; pulvillus well-developed, as long as well-developed claw, and as wide as base of claw; empodium
Chalazal haustoria are recorded in Anthericum (Schnarf, 1928), Curculigo (Schlimbach, 1924), Cyanella (De Vos, 1950), and Empodium
(De Vos, 1949).
Tarsal claws simple, bent before midlength, gradually attenuate to apex; empodium
short, reaching bent in claws (Figure 9).
EU: ratio between the length of the empodium
and the length of the claw.
Tarsomere 5 unmodified, truncate apically, bearing short claws and pad-like pulvilli; empodium
with pubescent ventral face.
hirsuta are long, smooth and strongly but evenly curved (Figs 39, 40, clw; 41), the puvilli are connected to tarsomere 5 basolaterally and consist of narrow, acutely-pointed blades with an arrangement of branched, regular Velcro-like hooks (Figs 39, 40, pulv; 41), the empodium
is style-like, acutely-pointed and clothed in short spines (Figs 39, 40, emp; 41), and tarsomere 5 is furnished with an very long, downcurved dorsal pre-apical seta.
2004), species in the genus Xenylla are mainly characterized by (1) 5+5, rarely 4+4 ommatidia, (2) postantennal organ absent, (3) mandible short with a well developed molar plate, maxillary head with normal lamellae, (4) furca rarely absent, showing a diverse morphology, if mucro separated from the dens, which normally bears 2 setae; mucro, however, fused with the dens or mucro absent, the dens has 1 or 2 setae, (5) empodium
absent, and (6) abdominal segment V tergite with p3 as sensilla.
Claws black, shorter than tarsomere 5; empodium
yellow (tip missing); pulvillus well-developed (almost as long as claw) (Fig.
