Abstract

A new species of Fittkaumyia from central Brazil, F. crypta sp. n., is described as larva, pupa, male and female imago, and observations on the habitat and biology are given. F. crypta is easiest to distinguish from the other three known species of this genus in the pupal stage by the numerous lateral taeniae on segment VIII. Our study reveals that three characters, previously considered to be valid on generic level (overlapping anal lobe points, antepronotum reduced, eyes not irridescent), do not apply to F. crypta.
