Protalges Trouessart, 1885

Type-species: Protalges robini Trouessart, 1885

The genus Protalges currently includes three species (SV Mironov, pers. comm.): P. robini Trouessart, 1885 , P. affinis Trouessart, 1886 , and P. longitarsus Trouessart and Neumann, 1888 . A sole male was found on Thalurania glaucopis , and therefore it could not be properly identified. (Collection data as in the new species described herein).
