Abstract: We describe new species of black fly that had previously been identified as S. scutistriatum Lutz due to morphological similarities at the pupal stage. The description of the new species, Simulium (Trichogamia) itajara n. sp., is based on molecular and morphological evidences. The known distribution of the new species is currently restricted to the Paraguaçu River hydrographic basin in Chapada Diamantina National Park and the surrounded area in Bahia state, Brazil. The distribution record for S. scutistriatum in the northeast region of Brazil needs to be removed, since the previous records were based on occurrence of S. itajara n. sp.
