Abstract

Megalopta (Noctoraptor) notiocleptis Engel, new species (Halictinae: Augochlorini), is described and figured from a female captured in central Bolivia, representing the first record of this parasitic lineage for the country. The species is distinguished from other cleptoparasitic Megalopta and its putative host documented from the same locality as M. (Megalopta) nitidicollis Friese.
