Species Description

Length:
Macropterous male 3.3-3.6 mm, female 3.4-3.6 mm. Brachypterous male 2.0-2.3 mm, female 2.5-2.8 mm.

Species Diagnosis

A distinctly smaller species than either N. lugens or N. bakeri. The male genitalia (Figs 3.22-3.29) are distinctive; the pygofer with three distinct lobes on the ventral margin (Figs 3.22-3.29), and the twisted aedeagus (Figs 3.28, 3.29). The female genitalia are also diagnostic in the form of the shape of valvifer VIII (Fig. 3.30), which is hooked at the base.
