Meneghelia carlotae Piza, 1980 

The genus Meneghelia  is based on a male and a female from northern Brazil, and is not compared to any other genus. The single species is quite similar to Apocerycta bariana  from French Guiana, and possibly congeneric. But the type species of Apocerycta  from Mexico, A. incommoda  , looks very different (especially the ovipositor).
