Two new Papuargia Lieftinck, 1938 from Papua New Guinea (Odonata: Platycnemididae)
MetadataShow full item record
A second species of the hitherto monotypic New Guinean genus Papuargia Lieftinck, 1938 and a new subspecies of P. stueberi Lieftinck, 1938 are described from Papua New Guinea. These are P. brevistigma sp. nov. and P. stueberi luciedecknerae ssp. nov. The characters which define the genus are discussed with special reference to the labium and penis, which appears to show a previously unknown synapomorphy.
