Neubert, Eike

Abstract

In this paper several new taxa, Strigileuxina concavelamellata illustris n. ssp., Strigileuxina carinata n. sp., Strigileuxina carinata boniferae n. ssp., Strumosa abanti alamellata n. ssp. and Euxinastra sumelae n. sp. of the Mentissoideinae LINDHOLM 1924 are described. The species difficilis RETOWSKI 1889 is removed from Strumosa O. BOETTGER 1877. The position of the genus Strumosa as a rather plesiomorphic taxon is elucidated by dissection of two of three species of this genus. Exinastra O. BOETTGER 1888 is defined genitalmorphologically and separated from related taxa, i.e. Galeata O. BOETTGER 1877, Elia s. str. H. & A. ADAMS 1855, and Euxina O. BOETTGER 1877
