handlirschi (Montandon) -- Thick setae restricted to embolium and adjacent areas of corium, although thin hair-like setae can be present throughout.
A unique, unreported feature present in certain mainland African and Middle Eastern Laccocorinae is a transverse fracture of the hemelytra extending from near the distal end of the embolium through the apex of the claval commissure (Figs 15, 17, 19).
handlirschi generally has sparse, thick hairs on the embolium, corium, clavus, membrane and scutellum, whereas the other two species have the short, thick hairs restricted to the embolium and adjacent areas of the corium.
Embolium with broad sub-apical band dark reddish-brown, otherwise whitish; cuneus reddish with basal mesal angle whitish.
1) Costal margins convex, widest across posterior aspect of clavus, strongly convergent posteriorly; embolium very wide, not to weakly deflexed; R + M weakly incised; median flexion line half the length of corium; corium flat; elavus moderately to strongly bi-planar, lateral plane oblique to corium; claval vein indistinct; cuneus small, very short.
Hemelytra: Mostly testaceous, with extensive red highlighting on claval margins; corium with most dense marking on medial aspect of embolium, and patchily on cuneus, with apex of the latter yellow.
Hemelytron somewhat shagreened, with uniformly distributed, dark small spots; spots on clavus obscured and sparser; apices of embolium and cuneus darkened, or sometimes sanguineous; membrane smoky brown, with pale, semitransparent portions anterior to veins.
1E, F): head yellowish brown, often tinged with red; yellow antennal segments I and II (apical 1/4-1/3 of segment II darkened); pronotum shiny black; mesoscutum and scutellum widely darkened mesad, with yellowish brown lateral margins; hemelytron hyaline, with dark reddish suffusions at apices of embolium and cuneus; dark reddish or maroon membrane veins; fuscous femora with pale apices.
DIAGNOSIS: Easily recognized by the concave head, short appressed shining pubescence on dorsum, a dark spot at each apex of the embolium and cuneus in all Nepalese species, greatly enlarged metafemur, the large pulvilli covering almost the entire interior surface of the claws, splayed out left paramere (Fig.
DIAGNOSIS: Recognized by the generally pale brown, oval body, sanguineous apices of the embolium and cuneus, and dark mesal part of the mesoscutum and apex of the scutellum (Figs.
1): Oblong, short, apex not surpassing apex of genital capsule, the latter exposed dorsally; humeral plate mostly covered by posterolateral angles of pronotum, barely visible in dorsal view; costal margin gently curved; embolium and claval suture faintly impressed; membrane and cuneus absent; apex round or acute.
1): Elongate, completely covering the abdomen; lateral margin nearly straight, slightly wider at level of apex of embolium, clavus elevated with respect to corium surface; claval suture impressed; embolium well delimited, apex ending close to cuneal fracture, not greatly expanded inward; cuneus slightly longer than wide; membrane with two cells.
