Diagnosis. Body mostly light green; forefemur predominantly green, sometimes with red spots near to the level of the base of sub-basal spine. Pterostigma green, venation predominantly green, with brown pigmentation on the junctions; forewing with 1 AA cell rectangular, aa-ap vein straight, forming an angle with the posterior wing margin. Male abdomen with intertergal membrane between tergites III and V invaginated, bilobed, not completely separated in two patches, each lobe with a transverse irregular row of 4‒8 pores ( Machado & Rafael 2010).

Remarks. Adults of this species are collected at any time of year and are often caught in light traps and sometimes during daytime. Even though the species has been previously recorded in Colombia ( Hoffman 2002; Reynoso-Velasco & Contreras-Ramos 2008), the present study includes the first records for Antioquia, Bolívar, Caldas, Huila, Magdalena, Quindío, Risaralda, Sucre and Tolima with a range of altitudinal distribution between 0 and 2500 m. This species is probably the most common mantispid in the Neotropics ( Penny 1982 b; Machado & Rafael 2010).

Zeugomantispa virescens has been reared from egg-sacs of two spider species in two families ( Hoffman 2002). Moreover, Machado & Rafael (2010) cite their association with the spider Parawixia bistriata Rengger , reporting the emergence of six adults from the same egg-sac.

Distribution. Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, French Guiana, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Tobago, Trinidad, Uruguay, Venezuela.
