Palpus yellow; two genal setae. Thorax. Scutum and scutellum dark brown, pleural regions brown; anepisternum bare. Legs yellowishbrown. Foretibia with two dorsal setae and anterodorsal row of strong setulae. Foremetatarsus with anteroapical setulose process, anterior excavation, and seta at base of anteroapical process ( Fig. 175View FIGURES 174 – 190). Hind femur not swollen (height/length ratio, 0.31), with posteroventral group of tiny blunt setulae with semicircular distribution, tapering toward ventral margin—dorsal setulae thicker ( Figs. 294View FIGURES 294 – 297). Hind tibia with one dorsal seta. Wing ( Fig. 227View FIGURES 227 – 238). Costa swollen, 0.37 of the wing length; M1 concave, curved posteriorly at apex; M2 slightly concave, antero-posterior distance between M2 and CuA1 at CuA1 apex about the same distance between M1 and M2 at the same level; CuA1 sinuous. Halter white. Abdomen. Tergites dark brown, with lighter posterior band. Hypopygium brown ( Figs. 105– 108View FIGURES 105 – 108). Epandrium covered with microtrichia mostly dorsally; dorsal suture of epandrium absent, left suture present. Left epandrial process with a ventral and a dorsal medially directed lobe. Two left subepandrial processes: a setulose distal process connected to ventral lobe of epandrium ( Figs. 106 and 108View FIGURES 105 – 108, black arrow) and a basal elevation with four long setae ( Figs. 106 and 108View FIGURES 105 – 108, white arrow). Hypoproct with two setae. Hypandrium without projections.

Geographical distribution. Brazil, Espírito Santo and Rio de Janeiro States.
