Bogidiella neotropica was described by Ruffo in 1952 after a single specimen of unknown sex, from Amazonia (Brazil). Both sexes have been found recently in the Guarico district, Venezuela. From the absence of secondary sexual differences in the male appendages it is clear that the species belongs to the subgenus Bogidiella s. str. The Venezuelan specimens are redescribed and illustrated.
