Diagnosis. Wing length 2.3–2.5 mm. Head black; mesonotum shining black; legs black; calypter greyish, fringe greyish; halter white with black spot distally. Aedeagus (Fig. 1C and 1D in Valenzuela-Escoboza et al. 2017): ba- siphallus slightly sclerotized; hypophallus sclerotied, flap-like, almost same length of the distiphallus; mesophallus stout and subquadrate; distiphallus forming two short tubules parcially fused and curved distally.

Material examined. Brazil, Pará state, Belém: Universidade Federal do Pará ( UFPA), 1º28′24.1″S, 48º27′27.2″W, 13-X-2015, N. Monteiro [collector], ex leaf of Emilia sonchifolia   (2 ♂); same location, 13-X-2015, N. Monteiro [collector], ex leaf of Emilia sonchifolia   (20 ♀) GoogleMaps   .

Comments. Nemorimyza maculosa   is easily differentiated from the other species in this genus by the dark spot on the halter (completely yellow in N. posticata (Meigen)   and predominantly black in N. ranchograndensis (Spencer))   , the whitish squamae and fringe (blackish in N. ranchograndensis   ), the abdomen blackish (partially yellow in N.posticata   ) and the curved tubules of the distiphallus (parallel in N. posticata   and N. ranchograndensis   ). This species has been associated with more than 20 genera of host-plants belonging to the Asteraceae   family (Benavent- Corai et al. 2005), forming blotches on the surface of the leaf.
