SANTOS, Claudiney Biral dos; FERREIRA, Adelson Luiz  y  FALQUETO, Aloísio. A new species of Sycorax Curtis, 1839 from Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil. Rev. Bras. entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.55, n.4, pp.475-478. ISSN 0085-5626.

A new species of Sycorax Curtis, 1839 (Diptera, Psychodidae) from the Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil. Sycorax bravoi Santos, Ferreira & Falqueto sp. nov. is described and illustrated based on samples collected with a Möricke trap installed on the ground at the Biological Station of Santa Lúcia, municipality of Santa Teresa, in the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo. Males have a paramere with a spiniform prolongation on the distal surface and an aedeagus with a long posterior membranous dorsal prolongation. Females have a racket-shaped genital furca and tubular spermatheca, tapered on the apical third. This finding raises the number of Sycorax species known from Brazil to seven.

Palabras clave : Moth fly; Neotropics; Sycoracinae; taxonomy.
