1 October 2008 A New Species of Tornocrusus (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Aenictopecheidae) from Ecuador, and Morphological Notes
Abstract

Tornocrusus lattini Štys and Baňař n. sp. (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Enicocephalomorpha: Aenictopecheidae: Aenictopecheinae) is described from Ecuador (♂, ♀) and differentiated from other species of the genus. The species is characterized by several autapomorphies; the most important being the asymmetry of female first valvulae—the first somatic asymmetry found in the Enicocephalomorpha. The forewings are characterized by presence of remigial CuA2 and claval AP, features here reported for the first time, but possibly overlooked in other Aenictopecheinae.
