Freddy Bravo, Maira X. Araújo
A new subgenus of Trichomyia Haliday, 1839 is proposed based on the following characters: palpus four-segmented; the first two segments partially fused and with long posterior gonocoxal arms that each has bristles on the inner margin. Brachiotrichomyia subgen. nov. includes seven Neotropical species: Trichomyia armata Barretto, 1954, T. brasiliensis Satchell, 1956, T. inermis Barretto, 1954, T. pseudodactylis Quate, 1996, T. quatei Bravo, 2001, T. risaraldensis Bejarano, Pérez-Doria & Sierra, 2009, and T. plumata sp. nov., described and illustrated herein. New illustrations of the male terminalia of T. inermis are provided, and new records for Bahia and Amazonas are given. A key to the males of all described species of the new subgenus is included.
