Specimens examined. Colombia: Bolívar: Sta. Catalina, El Ceibal , 20 m, X. 1999, E. Flórez, mercury light trap (2 ♂ ‒ ICN); Casanare: Yopal, Corregimiento Tilodirán, 05°08’ 57,32 ’’N – 72 ° 12 ’ 11,55 ’’W, 350 m, 05.I. 2010, G.

Diagnosis. Body mostly light green; wings hyaline with green pterostigma, venation predominantly green, with brown pigmentation on the junctions; forewing with 1 AA elliptical, aa-ap vein, almost parallel to the posterior wing margin ( Hoffman 2002). Male abdomen with intertergal membrane between the tergites III‒V invaginated, bilobed, each lobe with a single pore transversely elongated.

Remarks. Larval stages of Z. minuta were described by Hoffman & Brushwein (1992), the first of them is considered an obligate egg-sac penetrator ( Redborg & MacLeod 1985). This species has been found in association with egg-sacs of 29 spider species in 26 genera, belonging to the families Agelenidae , Araneidae , Anyphaenidae , Clubionidae , Corinnidae , Ctenidae , Lycosidae , Oxyopidae , Philodromidae , Pisauridae , Salticidae , Tetragnathidae , Therididae, Thomisidae and Uloboridae . In addition, the emergence of 2‒ 4 adults from the same sac was noted (Brushwein et al. 1992). Valerio (1971) reported this species as M. viridis , and has an association with the webbuilding spider Achaearanea tepidariorum (Koch) ( Araneidae ).

Distribution. Argentina, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Hispaniola, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Suriname, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela.
