Antillocladius scalpellatus Wang et Saether

Antillocladius scalpellatus Wang and Saether, 1993: 228 , Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–2 ; Wang (2000: 634); Tiunova et al. (2003: 66); Mendes et al. (2004: 49) View Cited Treatment .

Material examined: Type material as in Wang and Saether (1993).

Diagnostic characters: The male can be separated from all other members of the genus by having several apical setae on the wing membrane; setose squama; costa barely extended; acrostichals starting in front, anterior ones hair-like, posterior ones scalpellate; a short virga; anal point long, tapering, with strong lateral setae; and inferior volsella prominent, rectangular.

Remarks: Antillocladius pluspilalus , A. yakyijeus , A. scalpellatus and A. subnubilus are only separable on the size of the virga and the chaetotaxy of squama and cell m 3+4. See A. pluspilalus for comments.

Distribution: The species is recorded from China (Guangdong) and the Russian Far East ( Wang & Saether 1993; Tiunova et al. 2000).
