Abstract

The South American monotypic genus Notobothrus Parent (Diptera: Dolichopodidae), previously known only from its type locality in lowland Amazonian Peru, is newly recorded from the northwestern Brazilian Acre State. The single included species, N. longilamellatus Parent, is redescribed in detail, including the associated female for the first time. The genus is excluded from the subfamily Peloropeodinae and provisionally left incertae sedis within the Dolichopodidae.
