Antillocladius biota Mendes, Andersen and Saether, 2004: 30 View Cited Treatment , Fig. 3 View FIGURES 3–4 .

Material examined: Type material as in Mendes et al. (2004).

Diagnostic characters: The male can be separated from all other members of the genus by having bare wing membrane, squama with few setae, long costal extension, scalpellate acrostichals starting near antepronotum, long virga, nearly parallel-sided anal point with blunt apex and weak lateral setae, and inferior volsella short and pointed triangular.

Biology and distribution: The species has only been taken in the Parque Estadual Intervales in southern São Paulo State, Brazil, at the border with Paraná, where the larvae were collected among mosses growing on tree trunks. The type locality is a primary forest with some springs and rivulets, as well as swampy areas .
