Redescription. Male. Head. Frons broad, 0.108 (0.10–0.12) of head width at narrowest, about equal to width of parafacial at level of lunule. Fronto-orbital broad, pale orange when viewed from below and yellowish when viewed from above with faint yellowish tomentum, sclerites almost touching midway; frontal setae ascending about 60% of distance to vertex; frontal vitta dark orange, broad below, narrowed, almost obliterated midway but broader above, ascending to base of ocellar triangle; parafacial pale orange; gena orange with silvery tomentum, horizontal row of stout, dark setae midway, and scattered dark setae except for a few pale setae near posterior margin; postgena orange with silvery tomentum and fine golden setae; occiput dark with silvery tomentum and fine golden setae, median occipital sclerite shiny dark brown; antenna: pedicel, first flagellomere and base of arista orange, setae on arista brown; palpus typical; eye with median facets 2x size of lateral facets; ocellar triangle moderate, anterior ocellus slightly larger than posterior ocelli; supravibrissal setae short and dark, ascending about 1/6 of distance to antennal base.

Thorax. Dorsum dark brown to black with 4 pale tomentose stripes; pleura orange; chaetotaxy: ac 0:1, dc most 2:3, some 3:3, ia 0, ph 0, ppn 2x 2, kat 1:1, meral setae typical, 1 pair parallel or slightly diverging ap, sa and lat absent, 1 stout bas, 1 weak pb, 1 disc; subscutellum moderately developed; spiracles medium-sized, pale orange; legs orange except mid and hind tibiae and tarsi brown.

T1+2 orange, T3 sometimes with anterior edge orange, remaining portions of T3–5 shiny metallic blue, usually only T1+2–3 with whitish tomentum; T1+2–3 with dorsolateral marginal setae, posterior margin of T4 with row of stout setae; disc of T5 with fairly dense, medium-long setae only. Terminalia in lateral view with surstylus weakly curved backward ( Fig. 83View FIGURES 81–86); in posterior view, cerci with broad base tapered distally to rounded tips ( Fig. 84View FIGURES 81–86); phallus in lateral view with epiphallus of moderate length and curvature ( Fig. 173View FIGURES 173–182); in dorsal view, hypophallic lobes expanded posteriorly ( Fig. 174View FIGURES 173–182). T6, STS7+8, pre- and postgonite, ST6 and hypandrium as in Fig. 229View FIGURES 229–235; ST1–5 very narrow, as in Fig. 272View FIGURES 266–279.

Female. Similar to male except frons 0.274 (0.24–0.29/5) of head width at narrowest. T6 of WU in shape; T7 with suture midway; T8 as two sclerites, epiphallus bilobed ( Fig. 316View FIGURES 312–317); ST6–8 and hypoproct as in Fig. 360View FIGURES 350–369; spermathecae filiform ( Fig. 401View FIGURES 401–410); ST2–5 as in Fig. 445View FIGURES 439–453.

Distribution. Bolivia, Brazil, Guyana, Peru, Venezuela. Guimar„es (1977) lists French Guiana. Marinho et al. (2017) also listed it from Colombia and Ecuador.

Remarks. Five specimens from Bolivia ( TLW 280), Brazil ( TLW 278–279) and Peru ( TLW 276–277) were barcoded, and three GenBank sequences from Brazil ( JQ 246687View Materials, KR820730View Materials, KR820731View Materials) were added to the analysis. They formed a distinct group with some genetic variation between sequences. The genetic distance between sequences within Brazil was less than 2%, whereas between Brazil and Bolivia, it was 2.3% and between Brazil and Peru it was around 3.5% ( Fig. 488View FIGURE 488). Morphologically, all these variants appear very similar, and further molecular and morphological studies are needed to determine if any cryptic species can be found within them.
