Diagnosis

This large species (wing length in males 7.1-8.9 mm and in females 10.9-14.2 mm) is distinguished from congeners by the wing venation in that cell r5 is open and therefore M1 terminates in C (and not in R1), the predominantly apubescent vertex, the short proboscis that is only about half the length of the oral cavity, the long white setose anatergite, and the setose katepimeron.

Distribution

Namibia (Erongo, Karas, Kunene) (Fig. 6).

Biology

Flight behavior

Females of this species (as Namadytes prozeskyi syn. nov.) were observed by Wharton (1982) to have a hop-like flight in contrast to the low-flying males, which show the characteristic rapid gliding flight behavior in order to locate females for mating. A similar observation has recently been made for Namibimydas psamminos Dikow, 2012 ( Dikow 2012 , p. 92).

Oviposition

Females usually oviposited in shallow depressions, such as hoof prints and in particular on the lip of these prints, in the sandy Kuiseb river bed and followed a Mydidae -characteristic oviposition sequence of sand-ovipositing species (for details see Wharton 1982 , p. 149). The insertion of the abdomen into the sand took about 9 seconds while the egg-laying with buried abdomen lasted for 6 seconds. The eggs were orange, hyaline, and pear-shaped and measured 2 x 1 mm (length x maximum width).

Habitat

Namadytes vansoni has been collected in riparian vegetation along a dry river bed, in thornveld in a dry river bed, and on barren gravel plains.

Discussion

This species exhibits substantial intra-specific variation (Figs 9, 11) and is the most variable species. However, it is also the species known from the most specimens (61 specimens in total) and has the largest geographic range. Prior to this study, Namadytes vansoni is only known from the sole female holotype (Fig. 9c, d). Only through female and male specimens collected during a single collecting event is it possible to associate both sexes and hence appreciate the pronounced sexual dimorphism (Figs 9a, c, 11). Hesse (1969) hints in the description of Namadytes prozeskyi , which is also only known from a single female holotype, at the similarity to Namadytes vansoni and while he provides quite a few minor differences, we attribute these to intra-specific variation. With the increased number of specimens available in our study, we cannot differentiate the two species and therefore synonymize Namadytes prozeskyi (described on page 282) with Namadytes vansoni (described on page 280) by page priority.

Type locality

Namibia: Karas: Seeheim (26°48'53''S, 017°47'57''E) (Fig. 6).

Biodiversity hotspot

Not known to occur in any of the southern African biodiversity hotspots (Cape Floristic Region, Maputaland-Pondoland-Albany, or Succulent Karoo) (Fig. 6).
