( Figs. 15-21 View Figures 15-21 )

Diagnosis: Forewings with a brown marginal pigment- ed band, from R₄₊₅ to wing base, with hyaline fenestrae at wing margin as illustrated; pterostigma with a small proximal brown band, and a large, distal brown band, with a central, hyaline area ( Fig. 16 View Figures 15-21 ). Hypandrium of one sclerite, anteriorly straight, with mesal lateral processes, posteriorly with sides converging to broad apex, with an almost triangular, acuminate process on each side, directed outward, leaving a wide concavity between them ( Fig. 19 View Figures 15-21 ). Phallosome ( Fig. 20 View Figures 15-21 ) with side struts independent, inverted Y-shaped, not fused posteriorly to external parameres; anterior pair of endophallic sclerites broadly elliptic, with irregular outer borders, the left one with three short discrete posterior projections and a round- ed apex; a mesal pair, small, strongly sclerotized, almost touching in the middle; posterior pair scythe-shaped.

Color (in 80% ethanol): Compound eyes black, ocelli hyaline, with dark brown centripetal crescents; head pattern ( Fig. 15 View Figures 15-21 ). Scape and pedicel dark brown, f1 brown, with apex dark brown, f2 pale brown, f3 brown, f4 pale

brown. Mx4 dark brown. Coxae pale brown, trochanters yellow, femora yellow, tibiae pale brown, with apices brown, tarsomere 1 yellow, with the apex brown, tarsomeres 2 and 3 pale brown.Forewings veins brown, R₂₊₃ with a brown spot at wing margin ( Fig. 16 View Figures 15-21 ). Hindwings almost hyaline, veins brown, M and R₄₊₅ with a brown spot at wing margin ( Fig. 17 View Figures 15-21 ).

Morphology: Head with vertex slightly concave in the middle, slightly above the compound eyes’ upper bor- der, these without interommatidial setae ( Fig. 15 View Figures 15-21 ). Outer cusp of lacinial tips slender, with four denticles ( Fig. 18 View Figures 15-21 ). Forewing pterostigma wider in the middle, narrow anteriorly; areola postica tall, wide, slanted posteriorly, apex rounded, almost reaching the M stem, this anteriorly concave, M₁-M₃ as illustrated ( Fig. 16 View Figures 15-21 ). Hindwing R s stem straight, R₂₊₃ straight and R₄₊₅ slightly convex; M stem slightly concave proximally, then convex from the middle to the end ( Fig. 17 View Figures 15-21 ). Hypandrium of one sclerite ( Fig. 19 View Figures 15-21 ). Phallosome ( Fig. 20 View Figures 15-21 ) with side struts independent, Y-shaped, not fused posteriorly to external parameres. Epiproct sclerotized, almost trapeziform, anteriorly rounded, setae as illustrated ( Fig. 21 View Figures 15-21 ). Paraproct broadly semi-elliptic, sensory fields with 32 trichobothria on basal rosettes, setae as illustrated ( Fig. 21 View Figures 15-21 ).

Material examined: Holotype male (MZFS). BRAZIL. Bahia,Camacan. 15°23′28″S, 39°33′56″W, III.2012. Malaise Trap. Calor, A.R GoogleMaps   . Paratype. 1 male (MZFS): same data as the holotype.

Etymology: This species is dedicated to DML’s mother, Lauzi Santos Moura, for raising and educating him, even in difficult times, for being an example of mother and woman, and an inspiration for his work.
