Abstract
    Mecistogaster is a New World genus of Pseudostigmatidae (Odonata) that is poorly studied due to its preference for flying in forest clearings and trails. In Brazil, only one endemic species, Mecistogaster amalia (Burmeister), is known. The distribution of M. amalia extends from Southest Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo states) to Argentina. Herein, we report M. amalia for the first time in Rio Grande do Sul State, Southern Brazil. This record extends the species’ range ca. 630 km from the previous report at Paranaense Forest in Misiones province.
