Thyridates latreillei: Collucci & Amorim, 2000:5   .

Bittacus latreillei: Machado et al., 2009:36   , 2010:605; Machado, 2018.

Holotype male: LMED (examined). Species also known from Goiás, Maranhão, Mato Grosso (new record), Pará, Tocantins (new record) ( Fig. 12c View FIGURE 12 ).

Bittacus latreillei   is a large species, with strongly contrasting colors on the legs (apex of femora and tibiae black), which facilitates its recognition. The unique shape of the male epandrium also helps its identification. Bittacus latreillei   is another species in which the adults show an apparent flight activity for the raining seasons ( Machado et al. 2010).
