( Fig. 9View FIGURE 9 A –B)

Porricondyla acuta Spungis  is here reclassified in the genus Serratyla Jaschhof, based on the presence in males of strongly sclerotized parameres with lateral spikes (Fig. A, ↓), membranous gonocoxal processes, and gonostyli armed with an apical claw of fine spines (Fig. B, ↓). Serratyla acuta  has previously been known from only two males from Latvia ( Spungis 1981). Our specimens from Sweden were collected in Småland.

Material. 2 males (CEC 2–3), Sweden, Småland, Nybro, Bäckebo, Grytsjön Nature Reserve, 24 Aug.– 12 Sep. 2005, SMTP (trap 1000, collecting event 1362).
