Abstract

Nectarinella manaurasp. nov. is described, representing the first record of the genus from Brazilian Amazonia. Its description raises richness for Nectarinella from two to three species, and extends the range of characteristics for the genus, especially in terms of body size and color patterns. Discovery of the new species may shed new light into the knowledge of phylogenetic relationships between Nectarinella and other closely related genera.
