Genus Kivua Forsius, 1934 

Kivua Forsius, 1934: 398  . Type species: Kivua seydeli Forsius, 1934  , by original designation. Pseudoneacidiophora Koch, 1998 a: 7 –8. Type species: Pseudoneacidiophora bicolor Koch, 1998 a  , by original designation. syn. n.

Remarks. Pseudoneacidiophora Koch, 1998 a is a synonym of Kivua Forsius  based on comparison of type specimens. Koch (1998 a) erected Pseudoneacidiophora because of the nearly complete development of 2 A+ 3 A in the fore wing of the type species, that is very faintly indicated in most Kivua  , although highly variable. Pasteels (1949) described intraspecific variability in the anal vein of Kivua  species, using K. seydeli  as an example. He noted that similar variability occurred in several other Kivua  species. Kivua  is only known from the Afrotropical Region, and now comprises 16 valid species (see Koch & Liston 2012 c), after inclusion of the two species formerly placed in Pseudoneacidiophora:

Kivua camerunensis  comb. n., nom. n. for Pseudoneacidiophora bicolor Koch, 1998 ( Koch 1998 a: 10)  . The specific epithet bicolor  is preoccupied in Kivua  by K. bicolor ( Pasteels, 1949)  (= Bicrista bicolor Pasteels  ) ( Koch & Liston 2012 c: 647). No other name is available for P. b i c o l o r Koch, so a new name is proposed for the secondary homonym. Etymology: Named after Cameroon, the country where its type locality is located.
