A new species of Lissodoryctes Marsh 2002 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) is described from Brazil. This species is morphologically similar to L. zurquiensis Marsh, but differs by having the eyes blackish, fore and middle legs honey yellow, fore trochanter black, hind coxa reddish black; wings with stigma yellow, tegula black; frons smooth; malar space about 0.3 the eye height; and the first and second metasomal terga rugose. The discovery of this new species substantially extends the known distribution of this genus in the Neotropical Region.
