A new coenagrionid genus, Tukanobasis, is described for T. corbeti sp. nov. found in a flooded forest in the Amazonian region of Brazil (holotype: Brazil, Amazonas State, Taraquá [3°27′15″S, 62°51′05″W, 35 m], viii 1964, in ABMM). The new genus is characterized by the presence of an apical brown spot on Hw of mature males, a ventral thoracic tubercle, long paraprocts, two large pleural yellow stripes, and a short CuA. Its affinities are uncertain.
