species group

Pinelema bailongensis  species group

Diagnosis.

Species of Pinelema bailongensis  species group can be distinguished from all other Pinelema  species by embolus distinctly longer than bulb and by endogyne U-shaped, J-shaped or spiral. In contrast, embolus of other Pinelema  species shorter than bulb and endogyne bag-like.

Distribution.

China (western Guangxi, southern Guizhou).

Comments.

Pinelema bailongensis  species group is recognized as the first species group in Pinelema  according to the long embolus relative to the bulb. Morphologically, the species in this group have quite simple and almost identical copulatory organs, only proportions of the bulb and its parts can help to separate the species, endogynes can not be used for distinguishing species (except P. bailongensis  and P. wangshang  Zhao & Li, sp. n.). Genetically, each species in this group owns very significant difference comparing the congeners (Table 1).
