Noriega, light trap in forest (3 ♂, 2 ♀‒ ANDES-E); Valle del Cauca: 950 m, 20.III. 2005 (1 ♀—MUSENUV- 22683).

Diagnosis. Body color pattern consisting of a mixture of yellow and pale brown. Raptorial forelegs with femur predominantly yellow, except for a pale brown central spot on the anterior surface adjacent to the base of the subbasal spine. Pterostigma pale reddish brown. Male abdomen with intertergal membrane between tergites III and V invaginated, bilobed, completely separated in two patches, each lobe with a transverse irregular row of 3‒5 pores.

Remarks. Zeugomantispa compellens is reported from Cauca (Gorgona NNP), Magdalena, Sucre and Valle del Cauca for the first time. Its altitudinal distribution range is between 0 and 950 m. Adults have been captured in light traps at almost any time of year, occasionally have been collected on vegetation during daytime. An adult of Z. compellens was recorded emerging from an egg-sac of a spider of the family Araneidae ( Hoffman 2002) .

Distribution. Brazil, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, French Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Surinam, Trinidad, Venezuela.
