[Entomology • 2018] Revising the Generic Characters of Lobogonodes Bastelberger, 1909 (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Larentiinae), with Description of A New Species, Lobogonodes shiushioui, from Taiwan


Lobogonodes shiushioui Wu & Chang, 2018


Abstract

The present study re-assesses the characters of the Oriental genus Lobogonodes Bastelberger, 1909 based on all 8 species, including the newly described Lobogonodes shiushioui sp. nov. and the distinct species L. dactylotypa Prout, 1940 stat. rev.. Three synapomorphic characters based on the male genitalia are proposed: the presence of a sclerotized subscaphium, the U-shaped connection between the juxta and anellus lobe and the saccus process pointed anteriorly. A new key to the species in this genus is provided.

Keywords: Lepidoptera, Cidariini, Microlygris, hair pencil, genitalia, cornutus, signum
