Leptomantispa Hoffman, 2002  

Leptomantispa   currently includes six species distributed from southwestern Canada to northern Argentina, including the Antilles ( Hoffman 2002; Machado & Rafael 2010). In this work we registered one new species, L. hoffmani   .

The knowledge of biology of the genus is almost limited to collection reports: adults have been found at light traps near foliage ( Hoffman 2002) or in the canopies of primary forest ( Machado & Rafael 2007). In North America, they are seemingly both diurnal and nocturnal and they have been collected using Malaise traps and mercury vapor traps in pine woods ( Cannings & Cannings 2006). The first larval instar of L. pulchella   is considered a boarder ( Hoffman 2002), and it has been found in association with 20 spider species belonging to 15 genera in the families Philodromidae   , Aniphaenidae, Oxiopidae, Thomisidae   and Salticidae ( Hoffman & Bruswein 1989)   .
