Monardia Kieffer, 1895  s. str.

Monardia  sensu stricto gathers species with vestigial empodia and mostly leaf-shaped, uniporous translucent sensilla on male flagellomeres ( Fig. 14View FIGURES 11–14). Some of the species included here have hair-shaped, bifurcate sensilla, a fact indicating that this is probably not a natural group ( Jaschhof & Jaschhof 2009: 196 ff.). Of two unnamed species in our material, one is described below, while the other needs to be underpinned by more specimens before it can be described.
