General description. Antennae, legs and wings in alcohol pale brown; length of each anterior wing of male 6.8– 7 mm (n= 10), that of female 7.5– 8 mm (n= 6).

Male genitalia ( Figs. 11–15View FIGURES 11 – 15): Segment IX with apicodorsal lobe ( Figs. 11, 12View FIGURES 11 – 15). Sclerotized bands articulating on segment X rather short ( Figs. 11, 12View FIGURES 11 – 15); in caudal view segment X with very narrow and long sclerotized tubercle in middle and posterior margins sinuate; apical edge angled dorsad ( Fig. 11View FIGURES 11 – 15) and edge with shape of large V in dorsal view ( Fig. 12View FIGURES 11 – 15). Coxopodite of each inferior appendage with oval basomesal tendon, this tendon with apical edge strongly sclerotized; dorsal edge of harpago slightly sinuous with basal half convex and apical half concave, ventral edge convex, tip rather thick and blunt. In lateral view phallic apparatus with dorsolateral processes of phallotheca very short and subtriangular, without posterior prolongations ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 11 – 15), in dorsal view narrow and parallel-sided ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 11 – 15); phallicata at mid-length with pair of dorsolateral lobes covered with small tubercles ( Figs. 14, 15View FIGURES 11 – 15); apical portion of phallicata with narrow sclerotized band J-shaped in lateral view ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 11 – 15) and U-shaped in dorsal view with tips curved laterad ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 11 – 15); end of paramere almost smooth, its crown bearing dense cluster of 40 long plumose spines ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 11 – 15).

Female genitalia ( Figs. 16–20View FIGURES 16 – 20): In lateral view, sclerotized part of segment VIII rather short, about 1.1 times as long ventrally as tall anteriorly, and posterolateral edges each slightly convex ( Fig. 16View FIGURES 16 – 20); in dorsal view, fully sclerotized and posterior edge straight ( Fig. 17View FIGURES 16 – 20); in ventral view, median lobe of posterior edge ~ 3 times as broad as long, evenly rounded ( Fig. 18View FIGURES 16 – 20). Anterior process of bursa copulatrix semicircular and its posteroventral edge bilobed in lateral view ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 16 – 20); posterior process gradually narrower toward tip in lateral view ( Fig. 19View FIGURES 16 – 20) and in ventral view parallel-sided for most of its length and nearly truncate at tip ( Fig. 20View FIGURES 16 – 20).

Remarks. Rhyacophila camiliensis  sp. n. closely resembles R. zwickorum Malicky 1972  . The differences in the male genitalia are as follows: The dorsolateral processes of the phallotheca are very short and triangular and without posterior prolongations, in dorsal view parallel-sided; the basal tendon of each coxopodite lacks a hookshaped projection on the apicoventral corner and the apex of the paramere is almost straight. By contrast in R. zwickorum  the dorsolateralal processes of the phallotheca are long and pointed at the tips of their posterior prolongations, in dorsal view they are broad at the bases and pointed at the tips; the basal tendon of each coxopodite has a hook-shaped projection on the apicoventral corner and the apex of the paramere is subtriangular and blunt. The female of R. camiliensis  sp. n., shows the following differences: In R. camiliensis  sp. n. the ventromesal lobe of segment VIII is narrower (~ 3 times as broad as long), but it is broader in R. zwickorum  (~ 4 times as broad as long); the bursa copulatrix of R. camiliensis  sp. n. is nearly semicircular and bilobed posteriorly, but it is oval and not bilobed in R. zwickorum  ; in R. camiliensis  sp. n. the posterior process is parallel-sided for most of its length and almost truncate at the tip in ventral view, but the posterior process is broad subdistally, abruptly becoming very narrow towards the tip in R. zwickorum  .

Etymology. This species is named after the place near where the type specimens were collected.
