Genus Ishiharella Dworakowska, 1970 

Ishiharella Dworakowska, 1970  , Bulletin de l’ Academie Polonaise des Sciences. Serie des Sciences Biologique, 18 (11): 716.

Type species. Ishiharella polyphemus ( Matsumura, 1931) 

Description. Body robust ( Figs 44, 46, 48, 50, 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Crown broad, coronal suture absent, anterior margin rounded, with median black spot, posterior margin concave, midline shorter than interocular width ( Figs 44, 46, 48, 50, 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Face broad, width across eyes nearly equal to length, frontoclypeus swollen ( Figs 45, 47, 49, 51, 53View FIGURES 44 – 53). Pronotum large, much longer and slightly wider than crown, with pair of sublateral curved markings; scutoscutellar sulcus distinct, not reaching lateral margin ( Figs 44, 46, 48, 50, 52View FIGURES 44 – 53). Forewing with RP and MP’ stalked, RP, MP’ and MP’’+CuA’ arise from m cell; hindwing with CuA unbranched.

Abdominal apodemes not greatly enlarged ( Figs 1View FIGURES 1 – 9, 10View FIGURES 10 – 18, 19View FIGURES 19 – 27, 28View FIGURES 28 – 35, 36View FIGURES 36 – 43). Pygofer lobe with outer margin infolded and forming slight process distally ( Figs 3, 4View FIGURES 1 – 9, 12, 13View FIGURES 10 – 18, 21, 22View FIGURES 19 – 27, 30View FIGURES 28 – 35, 38View FIGURES 36 – 43, 39). Subgenital plate partly to completely fused, with row of sublateral macrosetae ( Figs 2View FIGURES 1 – 9, 11View FIGURES 10 – 18, 20View FIGURES 19 – 27, 29View FIGURES 28 – 35, 37View FIGURES 36 – 43). Paramere elongate, apex highly modified and variable interspecifically ( Figs 5, 6View FIGURES 1 – 9, 14View FIGURES 10 – 18, 23View FIGURES 19 – 27, 31View FIGURES 28 – 35, 40View FIGURES 36 – 43). Aedeagus shaft broad, structure complex, basally with long paired processes ( Figs 7, 8View FIGURES 1 – 9, 15, 16View FIGURES 10 – 18, 24, 25View FIGURES 19 – 27, 32, 33View FIGURES 28 – 35, 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43). Anal tube process well developed ( Figs 9View FIGURES 1 – 9, 18View FIGURES 10 – 18, 27View FIGURES 19 – 27, 35View FIGURES 28 – 35, 43View FIGURES 36 – 43).

Discussion. The genus Ishiharella Dworakowska  resembles Dialecticopteryx Kirkaldy  and Velu Ghauri  in having the latero-posterior margin of the crown with a shallow concavity, the posterior margin of the pronotum with a black triangular-shaped mark, RP and MP’ of the forewing stalked, RP, MP’ and MP’’+CuA’ arising from m cell, and CuA of the hind wing unbranched ( Figs 44, 46, 48, 50, 52View FIGURES 44 – 53) and in the male genitalia by the aedeagal shaft with a very long process ( Figs 7, 8View FIGURES 1 – 9, 15, 16View FIGURES 10 – 18, 24, 25View FIGURES 19 – 27, 32, 33View FIGURES 28 – 35, 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43). It differs from both genera by the presence of a lateral black spot on the vertex and from Dialecticopteryx  by the absence of a coronal suture ( Figs 44, 46, 48, 50, 52View FIGURES 44 – 53), the elongate, apically specialized paramere ( Figs 5, 6View FIGURES 1 – 9, 14View FIGURES 10 – 18, 23View FIGURES 19 – 27, 31View FIGURES 28 – 35, 40View FIGURES 36 – 43), and the aedeagus separated from the connective ( Figs 7, 8View FIGURES 1 – 9, 15, 16View FIGURES 10 – 18, 24, 25View FIGURES 19 – 27, 32, 33View FIGURES 28 – 35, 41, 42View FIGURES 36 – 43).
