The larvae (three instars) of Gonzaga nigriceps (McLachlan, 1868) from Brazil are described; adults are redescribed (including male and female genitalia); and biological notes are provided. The morphology of both the larvae and adults of G. nigriceps indicates that the species could fall within Gonzaga or Leucochrysa, a closely related leucochrysine genus. We retain its placement in Gonzaga, but we question the ultimate validity of the genus.
