Abstract

This paper describes the first South American species of Hesperopilio Shear 1996, a genus previously known from a single species, H. mainae Shear 1996, from Western Australia. The new species is known from a single adult female and is one of the largest and most colorful species of the superfamily Caddoidea. The generic diagnosis of Hesperopilio is emended to accommodate information from the new species.
