To date, the genus Neostothis Vellard is known only from its type species Neostothis gigas Vellard 1925, described on the basis of a single male and some females from Reserva Biológica do Alto da Serra de Paranapiacaba, Santo André, São Paulo, Brazil. The type specimens, which should be deposited in the collection of the Instituto Butantan are lost. Specimens matching the description of N. gigas, collected in the type locality, allowed us to designate a neotype and provide more information on the genus and species.
