Abstract

Ten new Neotropical species of Chimarra are described in the subgenera Chimarra, Chimarrita, and Otarrha. New species in the subgenus Chimarra include, in the C. ortiziana group: C. calori sp. n. (southeastern Brazil) and C. onchyrhina sp. n. (Venezuela); in the C. picea group: C. inchoata sp. n. (Venezuela), C. nicehuh sp. n. (Venezuela), and C. sunima sp. n. (Colombia); and in the C. poolei group: C. cauca sp. n. (Colombia) and C. desirae sp. n. (Bolivia). New species in the subgenus Chimarrita include, in the C. simpliciforma group: C. curvipenis sp. n. (SE Brazil) and C. latiforceps sp. n. (SE Brazil). A single new species in the subgenus Otarrha is also described: C. soroa sp. n. (Cuba). Males and females for all of the new species are illustrated, except for C. desirae, for which female specimens were unavailable. Additionally, the female of C. (Chimarrita) camella, which was previously unknown, is illustrated.
