A new genus and species of Leptophlebiidae, Fittkaulus maculatus, is described from male and female imagos, subimagos, and nymphs collected from streams of the eastern Guiana Shield, Pará State, Brazil. Association of life cycle stages is by rearing. Fittkaulus appears to be most closely related to Terpides Demoulin.
