Diagnosis. This species belongs to the Atopsyche (Atopsaura) longipennis   Group and is similar to A. sanctipauli   and A. huachacuyac Schmid 1989   . The phallotheca has a membranous anterodorsal portion; in lateral view, each “beak” appears as a simple lobe with a narrowly oval apex, having an internal carina with a minuscule preapical point in dorsal view; moreover a basodorsal process of the phallotheca is very regularly slender, arched basally upward and then downward, its slightly variable length surpassing the apices of the inferior appendages ( Schmid 1989).

Description. Overall body color yellowish to light brown. Antennal scapes light brown with elongate light brown setae, pedicels and basal flagellomeres light brown. Setae of head and thorax whitish with some darker setae. Maxillary and labial palps light brown with long dark brown setae; forewings brown and irregular shades of brown, covered by small brown and yellow setae, erect dark and light brown and yellow setae on veins, apices with fringes of dark brown and yellowish setae. Legs yellowish to light brown.
