Abstract
Ribautiella amazonica is described from a black-water inundation forest near Manaus, Brazil. The genus is recorded for the first time for the Americas. R. amazonica was predominantly collected from the forest soil, mainly between 7 and 14 cm depth and is considered euedaphic. Data indicate, that advanced immature stages and adults withstand forest-inundation of 5 - 6 months duration in the soil and reproduce in the early part of the emersion period.
