Schismatodiplosis lantanae (Rübsaamen, 1908) (Insecta, Diptera, Cecidomyiidae) induces leaf galls in Lantana camara L., L. urticifolia Mill. and L. hispida Kunth (Verbenaceae). The previous records of S. lantanae in Brazil included only the states of Rio de Janeiro (Southeast Region) and Santa Catarina (South Region). In this study, the geographic distribution of this galling species is extended to the states of Pará and Rondônia (North Region), Pernambuco (Northeast Region), Minas Gerais (Southeast Region), and four municipalities of the State of Rio de Janeiro (Casimiro de Abreu, Mangaratiba, Rio das Ostras and Valença).
