Title: A revision of the Oriental Ptecticus species described by G. Enderlein (Stratiomyidae, Diptera)

Abstract: Six Oriental species of the genus Ptecticus Loew described by Enderlein (1914) are revised. Only one of them (Gongrozus vulpianus) was recently elucidated as a valid species being conspecific with P. rectinervis De Meijere (cf. Rozkosny & De Jong 2001). Two of them (P. sumatranus and P. violaceous) are confirmed as valid species and their identity is documented by the detailed redescriptions and illustrations of the male terminalia. Three species are interpreted as definitive synonyms of other species: Gongrozus nodivena and G. nodivena var. striginotum are new junior synonyms of P. longipennis (Wiedemann, 1824), P. ochraceus is a new junior synonym of P. melanurus (Walker, 1848), and G. sauteri is proved to be a junior synonym of P. aurifer (Walker, 1856). Lectotypes are designated for P. aurifer (Walker), P. longipennis (Wiedemann), P. melanurus (Walker) and P. violaceus Enderlein. Taxonomic and distributional notes are added to each species treated.

Key words: Ptecticus, new synonyms, lectotypes, taxonomy, distribution

Abstract: The supraspecific groups of the genus Pseudohadena s. l. are revised, their phylogenetic connections are discussed, a new genus, Orohadena gen. n. and two new subgenera (Megahadena within Eremohadena and Bryohadena within Orohadena) are established. Two new species of Pseudohadena (s. str.), P. (P.) albilacustris sp. n. (Mongolia) and P. (P.) igorkostyuki sp. n. (Russia: Transbaikalia) and a new species of Jaxartia, Pseudohadena (Jaxartia) leucochlora sp. n. (Turkmenistan) are described. The species of the Eremohadena coluteae species-group are revised, the descriptions of two new species, E. raja sp. n. (Pakistan) and E. catalampra sp. n. (Chinese Turkestan) and a new subspecies, E. catalampra cyanochlora ssp. n. (Transalai) are given. The identity of E. coluteae is clarified, E. arvicola is synonymized with E. coluteae. Two new Orohadena species, O. (Orohadena) cardinalis sp. n. (Afghanistan) and O. (Bryohadena) nekrasovi sp. n. (Tadjikistan), and a new Heterographa species, H. thoenyi sp. n. (Kazakhstan) are described. With 40 figures.
