Abstract

The caddisfly genus Protoptila (Trichoptera: Glossosomatidae: Protoptilinae) has never before been recorded from Bolivia. Protoptila dubitans Mosely 1939 is now reported from Bolivia for the first time. Additionally, two new species from Bolivia, P. diablita and P. julieta are described. Protoptila julieta is most closely related to P. misionensis Flint 1972. Protoptila diablita is the first known species in the genus to possess scale-like setae. These scales are hypothesized to aid in the dispersal of male sex pheromones.
