Material And Methods

Only a card-mounted holotype was available for study. Glue used for its mounting could not have been dissolved in water (even after boiling), and after relaxing the specimen and dissecting parts of it, the glue has covered the objects by a continuous, transparent film obscuring the details. Consequently, we could not study those body parts, which were most heavily affected (the pterothorax except for mesoscutellum midlegs, hindwings, and the basis of abdomen). The arrangement of some internal...

Subfamily Anisopinae

This genus has been revised by Brooks (1951) who provides a key to species for males. Since then many species have been added, including one described from Melaka (Leong 1963) and one described from Laos (Nieser et al. 2004). In addition the distribution of various species has been found to be much more extensive than reported by Brooks (1951). Synonymy is abbreviated, notably synonyms mentioned by Brooks (1951) are not repeated. Including the four species newly recorded in this paper, there...

Discussion

Pinochius josifovi nov. sp. from North Vietnam extends considerably the known range of the genus, reported from Africa and Australia so far. However, similar discoveries might be expected among Dipsocoromorpha, since they are usually rare in collections due to their very small size and cryptic habits. A most probably undescribed species of Pinochius, represented only by a single female collected in India, is deposited at the Hungarian Natural History Museum. Therefore, occurrence...
