Dacus (Psilodacus) vestigivittatus White & Goodger, 2009: 43.
Size. Small, wing length, 4.7-5.2 mm.
Pedicel+1st flagellomere not longer than ptilinal suture. Face, antennal furrow without a dark spot; upper area with an inverted V-shaped dark marking. Frons, frontal setae 2, orbital setae 0. Thorax:
Scutum black; postpronotal lobe yellow; black antero-mesally; notopleural callus yellow; notopleural xanthine wedge shaped (connected to notopleural callus); lateral postsutural vitta absent; medial postsutural vitta present but very narrow and sometimes apparently absent. Scutellum yellow, without any dark patterning (except for basal dark margin). Anepisternum with a broad yellow stripe from notopleural callus to katepisternum; extended onto katepisternum. Laterotergal xanthine confined to katatergite. Setae. Anterior notopleural and anterior supra-alar setae present. 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, not extending below vein r2+3, except apically expanded into a large spot, reaching vein M, and starting before end of vein R2+3. Anal streak present but colour only narrowly extending beyond cell bcu. Cells bc and c hyaline. Without any crossbanding. Legs:
Femora pale (yellowish) coloured. Abdomen:
Predominantly black; with a yellow submedial (beside black midline) marking extending from halfway of tergite II to anterior of tergite IV, sometimes broadened on tergite II; orange yellow ceromata; sometimes with a small yellow mark antero-submedially on tergite V. Tergites I-V all fused. Tergite III with vestigial pecten (fine pale setae only); no dense area of microtrichia adjacent end A1+Cu2; hindtibia without "pad".
