The genus Manota Williston is shown for the first time to be present in Costa Rica, and is represented there by 27 species, all new to science: acuminata, acutistylus, arenalensis, bihamata, caribica, corcovado, costaricensis, diversiseta, eximia, fraterna, incisa, inornata, intermedia, limonensis, major, montivaga, multisetosa, parva, penicillata, planistylus, rara, rectolobata, rotundistylus, spinosa, squamulata, tapantiensis, and vexillifera. These species are described, illustrated, and keyed using characters of the male terminalia as the only tool for distinguishing closely related species. A lectotype is designated for the type species, Manota defecta Williston, and it is redescribed and the male terminalia illustrated.
