Type material: Holotype male: Peru, Huanuco, Panguana (74°56'W, 9°37'S), Cocha, May 1975, leg. W. Hanagarth ( UIC). GoogleMaps  

Paratypes: Panguana (74°56'W, 9°37'S), river margin, female, 05.01.1976, leg. W. Hanagarth ( UIC) GoogleMaps   .

Etymology: The species is named in honour of my dear colleague Dr. Werner Hanagarth, who unfortunately passed away too early. Among the extensive material collected by him in Panguana, this interesting species was found, which could not be integrated in one of the described genera.

Description: Length, 5.3 mm; colouration, black; legs and antennae light brown.

Head: 0.67 mm long, 0.90 mm wide; eyes small, but prominent; temples nearly three times longer than eyes; sides of fore-head narrowed to anterior angles in short concave curve; anterior edge of clypeus even; slightly convex; setiferous punctation coarse and dense; on average, interstices between punctures less than half of diameter of punctures; setae short; not much longer than one interstice between punctures; small area at antennae and large transverse area on neck impunctate; on punctate areas with isodiametric deep microsculpture; surface matt; impunctate areas shiny.
