Abstract
The endemic Neotropical long-horned caddisfly subgenus Notalina  ( Neonotalina ) Holzenthal contains nine described species in two species groups, the brasiliana  and roraima groups, from the Brazilian Southeastern and Amazonian regions, respectively. In this paper, a new species of Notalina  in the brasiliana  species group, from Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park, Goiás State, Brazil, is described and illustrated. The new species is easily recognized by the following character set: presence of two pairs of processes on abdominal segment X; presence of well-developed basoventral protuberances, mesally directed in ventral view; presence of triangle-shaped, acuminated mesoventral process on the inferior appendages; and phallic apparatus with flanges slightly curved in dorsal view, not laterally directed.
