Remarks. During the day specimens were sit. ting on thin stems of bushes in the forest. When disturbed they fiew to other bushes some ten meters away. At about 0 6 40 h p.m. they fly through open spaces to feed, but disappear again at about 0 7 h p.m. The female was collected in the after· noon when ovipositing into the base of a small tree in a dry hollow. This hollow will doubtless be filled with water in the rainy season. The male from Siapa 2 was found entangled in a mist net.
