Detail : Simulium (Gomphostilbia) kuvangkadilokae sp. nov. is described based on male, pupal and mature larval specimens collected from northeastern Thailand. This species is assigned to the varicorne species-group of the subgenus Gomphostilbia based on the adult antenna composed of the scape, pedicel and eight flagellomeres. The pupal gill, which is composed of two V-shapes inflated elements with 12 threadlike filaments, is very distinctive and easily separates this new species from the other known species.
