Diagnosis. Pronotum ochreous, often variably speckle with small brown spots. Forefemur dark reddish brown on the anterior surface, ochreous on posterior surface. Both wings hyaline. Ectoproct with ventromedial lobe completely sclerotized, bilobed, densely covered with short and thick setae.

Remarks. According to Hoffman (2002), D. gracilis has been reared from egg-sacs of Trechalea amazonica F.O. Pickard-Cambridge ( Trechaleidae ). Adults can be collected throughout the year ( Machado & Rafael 2010). This species has an altitudinal distribution range in Colombia between 30 and 1500 m. Previously reported for Colombia, in this paper D. gracilis extends its known distribution range to Antioquia, Caldas, Casanare, Chocó, Cundinamarca, Magdalena, Nariño, Santander, Tolima and Valle del Cauca, making it the most common species of this genus in the country.

Distribution. Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, Panama, Uruguay, Venezuela.
