Considerations on the genus Multioppia Hammer, 1961, new species of the genus from Romania
2009 - Volume: 49 Issue: 1-2 pages: 39-53
A comparative morphological analysis focused mainly on the distribution of the notogastral setae and the shape of the rostral setae has been performed. On this basis the authors propose to divide the genus Multioppia Hammer, 1961 in two subgenera: Multioppia (Multioppia) Hammer, 1961 and Multioppia (Hammeroppia) a new subgenus. The species Multioppia (M.) furcata (Kunst, 1958), Multioppia (M.) furcata carpatica Schalk, 1966, Multioppia (M.) glabra (Mihelcic, 1955) are redescribed, with some new diagnosis elements. Two new species - Multioppia (M.) orghidani and Multioppia (M.) callatisiana - are also described in the present paper.
