Abstract

A new species of Baleja Melichar, 1926, is described and illustrated based on specimens from Colombia (Nariño and Valle del Cauca departments). Baleja bella sp. nov. can be distinguished from other species of the genus mainly by the color pattern and male genital structures. The new species presents on the head a pair of peculiar lenticular sclerites, delimited by the loral sutures and adjacent to the frons, which are for the first time reported for Baleja. Taxonomic notes on the genus are included.
