Distribution. Brazil (Amazonas, Bahia and Paraná).

Comments. This species is morphologically similar to species of the subgenus Psycha, mainly in the number of flagellomeres and the type of fusion of the last flagellomeres, but different from Psycha by the globular format of the apical flagellomere, which in all species of Psycha is drop shaped. This is the first record of this species to Amazonas and Paraná.
