Holotype: male: MZSP (examined). Species known from São Paulo ( Fig. 12b View FIGURE 12 ).  

Bittacus boraceiensis   is known only by the holotype from the Biological Station of Boracéia in São Paulo state. The species also has heavily spotted wings, but it can be easily separated from other spotted-wing species by the very characteristic shape of the male epandrium (only species with three actniform processes).
