Type material. BRAZIL, Espírito Santo, Município de Barra de São Francisco, Povoado de Vargem Alegre, 20.X. 2009, Santos, C.B. col., holotype male (MZUEFS); 24 paratype males, same locality, date and collector than holotype (MZUEFS); 1 paratype male, Espírito Santo, município de Pancas, Córrego Ubá, CDC trap, 10.II. 2009, Santos, C.B. col., (MZUEFS).

Etymology. This species is named after the Brazilian State in which it was discovered.

D iagnosis. Hair patch of frons undivided, with patch of scars extending to upper eye margin, nearly to suture; longitudinal veins without medial or apical enlargements; hypandrium with concave apex; cercus with 14 apical tenacula; membranous area of male terminalia without apical spicules; parameres plumose-like, bifid, each arm bifurcated at apex.

Description. Male. Head. Eye bridge with four facet rows, separated by 1.5 facet diameters ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 8); interocular suture present, complete, inverted V-shaped ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 8); hair patch of frons undivided, with patch of scars extending to upper eye margin, nearly to suture ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 8). Antenna incomplete in all specimens studied, scape cylindrical 1.5 times as long as pedicel ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 8); pedicel spherical ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 8); basal flagellomeres nodiform and asymmetrical ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 8); ascoids lost in all specimens; sensory organ of flagellomeres present ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 8). Palpus formula = 1.0: 1.4: 1.3: 1.8, last palpomere striated ( Fig. 1View FIGURES 1 – 8).

Wing ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1 – 8). Longitudinal veins without medial or apical enlargements; radial and medial forks on about same level; R 2 + 3 incomplete; R 4 ending neat the apex; R 5 ending beyond wing apex.

Male terminalia. Epandrium fused to hypandrium ( Figs. 4, 5View FIGURES 1 – 8). Epandrium longer than wide with apical margin U-shaped, with bristles only in posterior area ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 8); presence of two foramina ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 8). Cercus pilose, long, 1.3 times as long as length of gonostylus, slightly curved in lateral view ( Fig. 5View FIGURES 1 – 8), with 14 apical tenacula ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 1 – 8). Tergite 10 smaller than sternite 10 ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 8). Hypandrium with concave apex, apically sclerotized ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 1 – 8). Gonocoxite pilose, 0.7 times as long as length of gonostylus ( Figs. 5, 8View FIGURES 1 – 8). Gonostylus pilose, with dorsal patch of scars at base, apically beak-shaped ( Figs. 5, 8View FIGURES 1 – 8). Sternite 10 subtriangular apically, with apical micropilosity. ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 8). Aedeagus symmetrical, bifid, 0.5 times the length of parameres ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 1 – 8); membranous area present above aedeagus, plate-like, without patch of apical spicules ( Figs. 4, 5, 8View FIGURES 1 – 8); one pair of parameres plumose-like, bifid, each arm bifurcated at apex ( Figs. 4, 8View FIGURES 1 – 8).
