Clorindaia latiabdoma Blocker & Fang, 1992: 344 [original description, illustration, morphology]; Zanol, 2008: 24 [catalogue]; Zahniser, 2007 [online catalogue]; Freytag & Gaiani, 2017 [online catalogue]

Diagnosis. The male of C. latiabdoma is not known, making it difficult to establish its identity. However, the coloration of the face of the female appears to be unique in the genus: clypellus mostly dark brown, with some areas of lighter coloration; lorum ivory; gena dark brown laterad of lorum, otherwise ivory to tawny except for some dark brown above and below antennal pit; frontoclypeus ivory to tawny centrally, with pair of poorly defined broad brown markings extending from clypellus to antennal pits. The measurement reported by Blocker & Fang (1992) of 4.8 mm is confirmed here.

Material examined. Holotype ♀ [ SEMC].

Distribution. This species is known only from the type locality in Paraguay (Caaguazú Dept.).

Remarks. This species is known only from a single female. The unique coloration of the face may help to identify males and clarify the identity of this species in the future.
