DONATO, Mariano. A new species of Bryophaenocladius (Diptera: Chironomidae) from Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2011, vol.70, n.3-4, pp.207-212. ISSN 0373-5680.

The male of Bryophaenocladius carolinae sp. nov. is described and figured. The species can be separated from all other Neotropical species by having a hyaline, blunt triangular anal point, a comparatively small, sub-rectangular inferior volsella, gonostylus widened medially with an outer heel, R4+5 ending opposite to end of M3+4, setose squama and absence of comb on middle tibia and pseudospurs. A key to the adult males of the Neotropical Bryophaenocladius Thienemann is provided.
