Resumo: The larva, pupa, male and female of Simulium tergospinosum 12. sp, are described and illustrated. The adults of this new species share many characters with species in the subgenus Psaroniocompsa, where it is placed. The larva of this species bears dorsal and lateral triangular tubercles on the abdomen and multiply branched scale-like setae on the body, suggesting that it belongs to the S. siolii species group. S. tergospinosum n.sp. was collected along the Juma River, Apui county, in the southern part of the State of Amazonas, Brazil. The Juma, a black-water river; is a tributary of the Aripuana River in the Madeira River hydrographic basin, on the southern part of Amazonas. Females were collected biting humans along the water courses during the sampling period (in the dry season).
