Diagnosis: Antennal club narrow, light brown ( Fig. 7D View Figure 7 ); head and thorax mainly light brown ( Figs. 7B, C View Figure 7 ); wings elongated and narrow,forewing with axillary angle moderately developed and followed by a strong concavity; hind wing basally constricted with a concavity, anal lobe moderately developed ( Fig. 7A View Figure 7 ). Ectoproct ovoid in lateral view, posteroventrally with abundant thick and long setae ( Fig. 8A View Figure 8 ); sternite IX narrow, spoon-shaped in lateral view ( Fig. 8A View Figure 8 ), in ventral view with distal half view nearly subpentagonal with angles rounded ( Fig. 8B View Figure 8 ); lateral lobes of gonarcus rounded, posterior apex slightly curved ventrally ( Fig. 8E View Figure 8 ).

Remarks: Morphologically A. selysi   resembles A. subripiens   and A. versicolor   , however hind wing is narrower with the anal lobe less developed. This species is report- ed to Colombia for the first time. The new records are from Tayrona Natural Park, Magdalena, locality found in the Caribbean coast of the country, and Guainía, a locality found near the eastern boundary with Venezuela in the Amazonian region of Colombia. Other records are from San Martín, Meta in the plains of the Colombian Orinoquia, contiguous to the eastern slope of the eastern cordillera, and from Tolima, which is found in the Magdalena river basin.

Distribution: Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil.
