An adult male of a newly discovered strepsipteran species from Brazil—Bahiaxenos relictus—is described. A new family Bahiaxenidae is suggested based on cladistic analyses of comprehensive morphological data sets with a broad taxon sampling including the stem group. It is unambiguously placed as the sister group of all other extant families of Strepsiptera. Bahiaxenos relictus is the only species of basal, i.e. non‐stylopidian, Strepsiptera occurring in the New World. It appears to be a relict… Expand
