Valenzuela micanopi was described by Edward L. Mockford. Distinguishing features are dark striations on the postclypeus, swollen male fore tibia and unmarked wings except for pale color in cell C (personal observation). Males are ~ 3.0 mm long and females 3.2 mm. It occurs on dead fronds of Sabal minor and is recorded from Florida, south Alabama, Bimini Island. My recent record from Palmetto State Park (24-Jan-2013) is, according to Dr. Mockford, the first record in Texas.
