The systematics of the species included by STICHEL (1910) in his Cinericiifonnes section of the genus Audre Hemming, 1934 are reviewed. "Audre" guttata jaibensis, ssp.n., is described from northern Minas Gerais. The synonomizing of two taxa described by Schweitzer & Kaye, Hamearis precaria Schweitzer & Kaye, 1941, and H. precaria ab. similis Schweitzer & Kaye, 1941, with "Audre" cinericia is explained. Descriptions of the habitat and adult behavior of "Audre" guttata jaibensis are provided.

Key words: Riodinidae, Hamearis, Neotropical, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, taxonomy.
