Uirassubrillia beckeri gen. n., sp. n. is described and illustrated based on male and female imagines from Bahia State in Brazil. The new genus is placed in the Brillia-group as the adults have a strongly setose body and setose wing membrane, RM is long and oblique, and the eye has a long, parallel-sided dorsomedian extension. The male hypopygium has a characteristic digitiform superior volsella and a bifurcate gonostylus. The female has three seminal capsules, two large and a third, smaller… Expand

TLDR
The systematic position of the genera related to Brillia Kieffer and Eurycnemus van der Wulp is discussed and a key to male and female imagines of genera of the Brillia group with single gonostyli are given. Expand

TLDR
Pupal morphology does not refute such a relationship, and phylogenetic analysis of the combined adult and pupal morphology indicates the new genus to be the sister group of Austrobrillia Freeman (Euryhapsis Oliver+Eurycnemus van der Wulp). Expand

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis links Austrobrillia in a clade with Eurycnemus and Euryhapsis, within a probable monophyletic Brillia-group clade at the base of the Orthocladiinae. Expand

TLDR
Chironomids are the most abundant faunal element in lentic and lotic waters; however, because of the lack of suitable identification for life-history stages, the importance of the family in aquatic ecological studies is underestimated. Expand
