Dicerura infundibularis Fedotova & Sidorenko, 2005  

This is another species described from a single male from the Russian Far East. Fedotova & Sidorenko’s (2005) description is confusing, for the wording does not always correspond with the illustrations, and illustrations are not consistent with one another. What is clear is that D. infundibularis   is another species with a lobed gonostylus and a furcate ejaculatory apodeme. The gonocoxites have a broad, darkly pigmented margin ventroposteriorly, a not so common character in Dicerura   . It is likely that D. infundibularis   is a member of the iridis   group.
