STUDIES ON NEOTROPICAL FAUNA AND ENVIRONMENT
A new species of Atrichopogon with distinctively pigmented wings, A. clastrieri, is described and illustrated from male and female collected in several localities of northern Argentina and Paraguay, and compared with their most similar congeners A. bicuspis, A. nubeculosus and A. nebulosus. Based on the study of the types, the allotype of A. casali is not considered as belonging to this species. Male and female of A. casali, collected associated in northeastern Argentina and Paraguay, are described and illustrated.
