Amiltonia Piza, 1976  syn. nov. of Uchuca Giglio-Tos, 1898 

This species was originally identified as a member of the Pseudophyllinae  , but obviously it belongs to the Agraeciini  , inclusively to the already described genus Uchuca  . The identification was made using diagnostic characters summarized and illustrated by Montealegre-Z. & Morris (2003). The only other long-winged species in this genus, U. macroptera  Montealegre-Z. & Morris from Colombia, has significantly different male cerci.
