A new species of predatory cecidomyiid, Diadiplosis bellingeri sp. nov. (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae), is described and illustrated based on specimens collected in association with scale insects (Hemiptera: Coccoidea) on Coffea arabica (Rubiaceae) in Espírito Santo, Brazil. Diadiplosis bellingeri sp. nov. is distinguished from all other Diadiplosis species, by having the following combination of characters: maxillary palps 4-segmented with segments 2 and 3 subequal, claws unidentate, empodium rudimentary, cercus and hypoproct emarginate, gonostyli curved, and aedeagus triangular.
