Dacus (Didacus) abruptus White & Goodger, 2009: 11.
Size. Medium, wing length, 6.2 mm.
Pedicel+first flagellomere not longer than ptilinal suture. Face, antennal furrow with a dark spot, about two-thirds width and in lower half of furrow. Frons, frontal setae 2, orbital setae 1. Thorax:
Scutum predominantly black; postpronotal lobe yellow; notopleural callus yellow; notopleural xanthine wedge shaped (connected to notopleural callus); lateral and medial postsutural vittae absent. Scutellum without any dark patterning (except for basal dark margin). Anepisternum with a subparallel stripe from notopleural callus to katepisternum; extended onto katepisternum. Lateroterga with a single xanthine across both anatergite and katatergite. Thoracic setae. Anterior notopleural seta present; anterior supra-alar seta absent. Wing:
Basal cells bc and c without an almost complete covering of microtrichia; cell bm without microtrichia. Narrow subbasal raised section of cell br with extensive covering of microtrichia. Crossvein R-M beyond middle of cell dm. Costal band complete; shallow, not extending below vein R2+3 before wing apex; abruptly expanded at apex, but barely below vein R3+4 apically. Anal streak present (colour extending beyond cell bcu). Cells bc and c hyaline. Without any crossbanding. Legs:
Femora bicoloured (pale basally and red-brown in apical third to half). Abdomen:
Terga I-III predominantly black, except for very small reddish submedial spots at apex of terga II and III; tergite IV black laterally and medially, reddish submedially; tergite V and oviscape largely reddish; shape more rotund than most members of the Ciliatus group, similar to D. abditus (Munro, 1984).
