Evocoa is a monotypic genus of flies containing the single species Evocoa chilensis. It is the only genus in the family Evocoidae.

This fly was described in 2003 with the name Ocoa chilensis,[1] and it was placed in its own family, but that genus name was preoccupied. A new genus name was coined in 2006.[2]

This species is a small fly native to Chile.[1]
