Oligota besuchetiella ( PACE 1985)


Oligota besuchetiella ( PACE 1985)   , nov.comb.

Hypcyphtus besuchetiellus PACE 1985: 81.

C o m m e n t: The original description is based on a male holotype and nine paratypes (one male and eight females) from several localities in West Bengal. Based on the drawings of the habitus, the aedeagus (median lobe and parameres), and the spermathecae [sic] of two females provided by PACE (1985: figures 14-18), this species clearly belongs to the genus Oligota MANNERHEIM 1830   , not to Cypha   .
