( Figs 1−12View FIGURES 1 − 2View FIGURES 3 − 12)

Type locality. Manaus , State of Amazonas, Northern Brazil. 

Measurements (mm). Total length of holotype 11.1. Total length of male paratypes 10.8−12 .1.

Color. Pale brown. Crown and mesonotum ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 − 2) with pale yellow areas. Crown with red areas around ocelli and red marks on anterior margin, coronal suture, and inner eye margins ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 − 2); ocelli ( Figs 1, 2View FIGURES 1 − 2) red. Pronotum ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 − 2) with small markings on anterior third and transverse stripe adjacent to posterior margin, pale yellow. Face ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 3 − 12) mostly black, superior portion behind eyes yellow. Forewings ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 3 − 12) with large brown area on basal third over corium and clavus and with brown oblique broad stripe on median third extending from commissural margin to costal margin; large dark brown mark over apex of clavus and base of appendix; apex dark brown.

External morphological characters as in the generic description.

Male terminalia. Sternite VIII ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 3 − 12), in ventral view, as wide as long, subquadrangular; lateral margins slightly convergent posteriorly; posterior margin with prominent median subquadrate lobe. Pygofer ( Figs 6, 7View FIGURES 3 − 12) higher than long; dorsal margin strongly convex; posterior margin projected as a long and pointed process, curved dorsally; macrosetae absent. Subgenital plates ( Figs 6, 8View FIGURES 3 − 12) extending posteriorly much beyond pygofer apex; in ventral view, subrectangular, expanded laterally; approximately 2.3 times longer than wide; ventral surface with few setae distributed on apical third; posterior margin truncated. Connective ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 3 − 12) short, approximately onefourth of the length of styles; in dorsal view, V-shaped. Styles ( Figs 9, 10View FIGURES 3 − 12) elongated; with external prominent tuberosity at angle of curvature of apophysis; ventral margin slightly serrate preapically; presence of numerous setae distributed over entire outer lateral portion of blade; preapical region curved dorsally; apex truncated. Aedeagus ( Figs 11, 12View FIGURES 3 − 12) with shaft long and tubular, curved dorsoanteriorly, with pair of short spiniform lateral preapical processes, directed ventrally; dorsal apodemes with processes robust, laterally flattened and with apices strongly expanded and foot-shaped; preatrium very short; gonopore located apically.

Distribution. Brazil (Amazonas, Pará); French Guiana.

Etymology. The species name is in reference to the biome where specimens were collected.
