Comments. The genus Anchieta is until now composed of seven species distributed from Panama south to Brazil. Most of the species are known from the Brazilian Amazonia, although the genus presents few records ( Penny 1982). The group is separated from other Symphrasinae members by the presence of a straight rarp2 (second anterior radial cell) of forewing. Another remarkable difference, is the mimetic pattern with several families of Hymenoptera , which seems to be a generalized feature of the group. For example, A. fumosella was referred to be a mimetic of Vespidae ( Buys 2008) , while A. fasciatella resembles wasps of the family Braconidae (Braconinae) , which have repugnant abdominal glands ( Ardila-Camacho & García 2015). The remainder species present a general color pattern and the hindtibia greatly swollen and flattened, resembling stingless bees of the tribe Meliponini ( Penny 1982). Some species in this genus have lateral keel like projections on the abdominal tergites of both sexes. The pterostigma on the forewing is shorter than in Plega or Trichoscelia , and the trochanter of the forelegs has a dentiform process on the inner surface.

Anchieta fasciatella was originally described from Venezuela. However, this record is now considered erroneous because the type locality, Santa Marta, is not located in Venezuela, but in Colombia. In fact, Ardila- Camacho & García (2015) reported this species as Plega fasciatella from several localities in Colombia. Moreover, in the revision by Penny (1982), this species was mentioned as occurring in Panama, however, no specific data were provided by the author. Here we present the first specific records of this species from Panama.
