 group, C.lobatoi from Nova Friburgo, State of Rio de Janeiro, is described andillustrated from female specimens.

In our study we used the terminology employed in the comprehensive revisions on Culicoides, by Wirth and Blanton for Panama (1959), the Amazon Basin (1973), and the West Indies (1974), and the Atlas of wing photographs of Neotropical species, by Wirth et al. (1988).
