Abstract
A new genus and species, Lucihormetica fenestrata n.gen., n.sp., of Blattodea, Brachycolini is described from Brazil. This seems to be the first orthopteroid insect genus ever reported as possessing organs of illumination. The new genus is closely related to Hormetica BURMEISTER, 1838 and Parahormetica BRUNNER VON WATTENWYL, 1865, but differs in the presence of organs of illumination and the morphology of its genitalia. A key to Brachycolini genera is compiled, and their type-species are listed
