Neomidadiminuta sp. n. is described, based on a single male specimen from Colombia, and a redescription of Neomidasuilla (Champion) is given. Data on the morphology of the aedeagus for both species, and on the female abdominal terminalia for Neomidasuilla are provided. New records of Neomidasuilla from Atlantic Forest remnants in the states of Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais, Brazil are given.

Neomidasuilla female. 10 Dorsal view 11 Spermatheca 12 Abdominal terminalia. bc – bursa copulatrix, cv – check valve, gs – gonostylus, sp – spermatheca, w – window of bursa. Scale bars: 0.5 mm (Fig. 10), 0.1 mm (Figs 11–12).

Figure 3: Neomidasuilla female. 10 Dorsal view 11 Spermatheca 12 Abdominal terminalia. bc – bursa copulatrix, cv – check valve, gs – gonostylus, sp – spermatheca, w – window of bursa. Scale bars: 0.5 mm (Fig. 10), 0.1 mm (Figs 11–12).

Mentions: Species identification was possible due to morphological data and images provided in the work of Triplehorn (2006). Specimens were examined and measured, and adult male and female abdominal terminalia extracted under a Zeiss Stemi 2000-C stereomicroscope. Female terminalia, including spermatheca, were stained with a solution of 0.5% Chlorazol Black E in 85% alcohol to enhance contrast. Whole mount preparations of dissected sclerites were made using a water-soluble mounting media based on polyvinyl alcohol and lactic acid. We photographed slides under a Zeiss AxioLab compound microscope equipped with a Zeiss AxioCam ERc 5s digital camera (Figs 3–4) and a Zeiss AxioCam MRc (Figs 7–9, 11–12), and adult specimens under a Zeiss Discovery V8 stereomicroscope with a Zeiss AxioCam MRc digital camera (Figs 1–2) and a Zeiss Discovery V20 stereomicroscope with a Zeiss AxioCam 506 (Figs 5–6, 10). Final images were the result of montaging 25 to 125 image slices at different focal lengths using the extended focus module of Zeiss Axiovision 4.8 software (Figs 1–2) and Zeiss ZEN 2012 (Figs 5–6, 10).
