Microvelia pulchella Westwood, 1834

This is one of the most widely distributed species of the genus, with records from Canada to Argentina (Pérez- Gelabert & Floriano 2016), and is commonly collected together with M. longipes and M. mimula in small pools. We present here the first record from French Guiana, where the three species co-occur.
