Abstract
The relationship of Eupompha wenzeli to other Eupompha has been problematic. The discovery of its first instar larva reinforces its earlier tentative placement near E. fissiceps, E. schwarzi, and E. histrionica. Sexual behavior of E. wenzeli is also described but is of little taxonomic utility due to its inelaborate nature.
