Identification
"Among all Trupanea species having a narrow pterostigmal ray, the apex of cell br completely hyaline, the base of cell r4+5 with a distinct hyaline spot, and only one ray in the apical half of cell dm,jonesi can be recognized by the elongate spot at the center of vein CuA1 (fig. 465, b). This is a very constant character which, together with the pterostigmal ray, distinguishes the females from all the species in the group. Males of jonesi resemble those of radifera, but the presence of the elongate dark mark on vein CuA1 distinguishes them adequately." (Foote, Blanc, & Norrbom, 1993 (1))
