Abstract

Nepalese species of the genus Trichadenotecnum Enderlein are revised. A total of 16 species are recognized of which six are newly described: Trichadenotecnum isseii n. sp., T. suwai n. sp., and T. danieli n. sp. belonging to the spiniserrulum group, T. nepalense n. sp. and T. depitarense n. sp. belonging to the newly established distinctum group, and T. malickyi n. sp. belonging to the newly established digitatum group. T. distinctum Datta, originally described from India, and T. sclerotum New, originally described from Bhutan, are newly recorded from Nepal. Four possibly undescribed species are also recognized; however, these species are not named here because they are represented only by female specimens. One of these species belongs to the newly established longimucronatum group, which was formerly recognized as an independent genus, Conothoracalis Li, here newly synonymized with Trichadenotecnum. The holotype male of T. masoni New and the allotype male of T. godavarense New are considered to be “chimeras” composed of general body parts of one species and male terminalia of the other species. Therefore, terminal parts of the holotype male of T. masoni are here excluded from the holotype. Several new generic combinations and species group assignments are also proposed for non-Nepalese species.
