The female of Saica erubescensChampion, 1898 is herein described for the first time, based on a specimen from “Pilaton” in Ecuador, markedly expanding the known distribution of the species at least 970 km southward from Central into South America. Characters for separating S. erubescens from its congeners are discussed, as is the presence of apical abdominal spines as a potentially useful character for identifying females within the genus.
