Family Anomalopsychidae Flint, 1981

The Anomalopsychidae Flint, 1981 was created to contain two genera, Anomalopsyche Flint, 1967 and Contulma Flint, 1969, and species of caddisflies formerly assigned to the Sericostomatidae . To date, Anomalopsyche minuta (Schmid, 1957) remains the sole representative of its genus. Contulma cranifer Flint, 1969 has been joined by several dozens of new species, most recently by Holzenthal et al. (2017; three new species from the Andes of Ecuador) and by Dumas (2018; one new species from the Atlantic Forest area of Rio de Janeiro State in southeastern Brazil). A total of 31 species are now assigned to this genus ( Dumas 2018). In Panama, we have previously recorded the genus ( Armitage et al. 2016), but the new species that supports that record is as yet undescribed. Herein we record a described species, C. talamanca Holzenthal & Flint, 1995, as a new country record for Panama.
