Trizocheles Forest, 1987


Genus Trizocheles Forest, 1987 

Remarks. Since the revision by McLaughlin & Lemaitre (2009), Komai (2013) reported on four Japanese species of Trizocheles  , including three new species. The present study adds material of the four species and includes one new species. Possible diagnostic characters, including key characters used by McLaughlin & Lemaitre (2009), have been reassessed and a revised key to the species of Trizocheles  is here presented. Non-dichotomous characters are included with brackets.
