Abstract: The adult female of the sand fly species Martinsmyia minasensis (Mangabeira, 1942) is described, and the characters of the genus Martinsmyia Galati, 1995 are defined. We performed morphometric analyses on the spermatheca and wings, and present data on the geographical distribution of M. minasensis , as well as an identification key to females of this genus. The specimens were measured, drawn, photographed, and compared with the similar species M. oliveirai. It was possible to distinguish between M. minasensis and M. oliveirai based on differences found in the common and individual ducts of the spermatheca, as well as wing shape and size.
