Key to the Asiatic Calleida  species groups

1. Abdominal sternum VII with two or more setae on each side in males ( figs. 2–3 View Figure ), three or more setae in females ( figs. 5–6 View Figure ). 2

- Abdominal sternum VII with one seta on each side in males ( fig. 1 View Figure ), two setae in females ( fig. 4 View Figure )...................... 3

2. Pronotum coarsely punctate ( fig. 24 View Figure ). Male with abdominal sternum VII not notched ( fig. 3 View Figure ); endophallus of aedeagus without chitinized copulatory pieces ( fig. 27 View Figure ).............................................. 2. C. puncticollis  species group

- Pronotum very finely punctate or impunctate. Male with notched abdominal sternum VII ( fig. 2 View Figure ); endophallus of aedeagus with one or a pair of copulatory pieces............................................. 3. C. discoidalis  species group

3. Anterior angles of pronotum without setae ( fig. 14 View Figure )........................................................... 4

- Anterior angles of pronotum each with some, erect setae ( figs. 11–13 View Figure )............................................ 8

4. Outer apical angle of elytra acute, forming sharp tooth ( fig. 15 View Figure ). Median lobe of aedeagus in lateral aspect with a distinct, very prominent ventral lobe ( figs. 45 View Figure , 51 View Figure ); abdominal sternum VII deeply notched in males........ 5. C. terminata  species group

- Outer apical angle of elytra square or obtusely rounded, not forming tooth ( figs. 16–18 View Figure ). Median lobe of aedeagus without prominent ventral lobe; abdominal sternum VII shallowly notched in males....................................... 5

5. Pronotal disc and all parts of legs piceous to black ( figs. 67–69), sometimes fourth and fifth tarsomeres dark brown ( fig. 78). Species larger sized (L: 11.5–15mm). Median lobe of aedeagus markedly concaved ventrally, without ventral ridges or lobes................................................................................. 7. C. doriae  species group

- Pronotal disc and legs usually reddish yellow to brown, if legs partly dark, at least all tarsomeres reddish brown ( fig. 62 View Figure ). Species smaller sized (L: 5.5–11.5 mm). Median lobe of aedeagus simple or strongly ridged ventrally......................6

6. Elytral apex strongly curved, outer apical angle markedly widened ( fig. 16 View Figure ). Median lobe of aedeagus with apical lamina elongate, widened and ax-shaped ( fig. 64 View Figure ).............................................. 6. C. borneensis  species group

- Elytral apex straight or weakly curved, outer apical angle not or slightly widened ( figs. 17–18 View Figure ). Median lobe of aedeagus with apical lamina short and simple........................................................................... 7

7. Body size generally greater than 9.5mm; elytra with an indistinct bluish purple patch on disc; metacoxae with few accessory fine setae. Median lobe of aedeagus peculiar in form, irregularly explanate and ridged ventrally...............................................................................................8. C. chloroptera  species group (pars)

- Body size generally smaller than 9.5mm; elytra completely metallic greenish, or disc with reddish patch; metacoxae only with 3 or 4 primary setae. Median lobe of aedeagus simple................................. 9. C. splendidula  species group

8. Dorsal surface densely and evenly pubescent ( figs. 36–38 View Figure ). Elytra with wide reddish patch on disc............................................................................................... 4. C. lativittis  species group (pars)

- Dorsal surface glabrous, or with scarce pubescence restricted to some body parts. Elytra fully metallic or with reddish patch. 9

9. Antennomeres 1–3 with numerous fine setae in addition to the primary ones ( fig. 7 View Figure ); pronotal lateral margin setose through full length ( fig. 11 View Figure ). Endophallus with a long and bent chitinized flagellum ( fig. 21 View Figure )............1. C. gressittiana  species group

- Antennomeres 1–3 with only the primary apical setae ( fig. 9 View Figure ); pronotum lateral margin with fine setae restricted to the anterior angles ( fig. 13 View Figure ). Endophallus with a pair of copulatory pieces not modified as long flagellum......................... 10

10. Only anterior angles of pronotum setose, elytral humeral margins without setae. Elytra very elongate, EL/EW 1.80–2.05. Median lobe of aedeagus simple, without ventral ridges or lobes ( figs. 32, 34 View Figure )........... 4. C. lativittis  species group (pars)
