A potential new species of Adelopsis will be described and compared with the other described species of this genus, being possibly the first species of Adelopsis described to Brazil in more than a decade. Its internal and external morphology details, including male and female genitalia will be described, analyzed, illustrated and compared with the other Adelopsis. The knowledge about this genus diversity in Brazil is still restricted, with few publications about its taxonomy in last years. A catalog with the described species of Adelopsis (currently, 78 nominal species) will be made providing an overview of its known diversity. The catalog will provide information on each species described characteristics, descriptions authorship, year of publication, besides eventual classifications in groups and subgenus, illustrations and locality of holotypes, paratypes and other types, providing a support to the development of this project and collaborating with further researches with the genus Adelopsis, for example, the taxonomic revision.
