Remarks. Microvelia albonotata   is distributed from eastern North America to Peru ( Smith 1988) but reports from Central and South America are scarce and usually poorly detailed (e.g., Drake & Hussey 1955). There is one previous record from Panama without any further information ( Drake & Hussey 1951), which is herein confirmed. We also present here the first record of this species from Colombia.
