Thyridates froehlichi: Collucci & Amorim, 2000:2  .

Bittacus froehlichi: Machado et al., 2009:36  ; Machado, 2018.

Holotype male: LMED (examined). Known only from São Paulo ( Fig. 12cView FIGURE 12). 

Bittacus froehlichi  is another species with maculated wings, and for this reason it was placed in the “group chilensis  ” by Collucci & Amorim (2000). Besides B. froehlichi  , the authors also included in this group B. andinus Londt & Byers  , B. chilensis Klug  and B. maculosus Byers  , and also discussed the similarities among their male terminalia, but demonstrated that the shape of the epandrium was different in each species ( Collucci & Amorim 2000).

Examined specimens. Brazil: São Paulo: Ribeirão Grande, Pq. Est. Intervales—Barra Grande, 13–16/xii/ 2000, Malaise trap, M. T. Tavares et al (1♀ INPA)  .
