Camptopsilus Kieffer, 1908 

( Figs. 5BView FIGURE 5, 15View FIGURE 15 A-B, 16, 23A)

Total of specimens found: 173 (127 females and 46 males) in 48 morphospecies.

Diagnosis: Overall size between 2.15 and 3.9 mm; sickle-shaped mandibles short to long (mandibular length as long as, shorter or longer than the distance between the ventrolateral margins of the head, near the bases of the mandibles) ( Fig. 16AView FIGURE 16); distance between toruli relatively long, 1.5 to 2.5 times the diameter of each torulus ( Fig. 16AView FIGURE 16); antenna 15-segment- ed and filiform in females, 14-segmented in males. Posterior extremities of the notauli directed to points outside to scutellar fovea, very close or a little distant from the fovea lateral margins ( Figs. 15View FIGURE 15 A-B, 16D); scutellar fovea trapezoidal, sometimes almost circular [divergent side margins (straight or curved) and the margin near the notauli straight and shorter than the distal margin, which is straight or slightly curved] ( Figs. 15View FIGURE 15 A-B, 16D); teeth present or absent, when present one on each scutellar bridge, near the posterolateral margin of the scutellar fovea; semicircular projection, tubercle ( Fig. 16CView FIGURE 16) or spine on the metascutellum; carina between the medial keel and the internal plica present ( Figs. 15AView FIGURE 15, 16DView FIGURE 16) or absent ( Fig. 15BView FIGURE 15). Forewing with radial cell closed and at least 2.3 times longer than marginal vein ( Figs. 5BView FIGURE 5, 16GView FIGURE 16). Petiole relatively long, 6-11 times longer than its smallest width, with little wisps of short hair on the ventral side ( Figs. 16B, 16FView FIGURE 16).

Remarks: There is only one described Camptopsilus  species in the world ( Johnson, 1992), C. nigriceps Kieffer, 1909  , which has been recorded in the Neotropics (Cayamas, Cuba) ( Kieffer, 1909). Nevertheless, the number of Camptopsilus  species estimated

for this region is 60 ( Hanson & Gauld, 2006). Like Aclista  , this is a highly variable genus.

Distribution: Neotropics and Australia ( Hanson & Gauld, 2006). In our survey, the genus was recorded throughout the Atlantic Forest, from Santa Catarina to Paraíba states ( Fig. 23AView FIGURE 23).
