oa African Entomology - A new Baetis-complex genus (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae) from the Afrotropical Region
Glossidion gen. n. is descriptionbed from larvae from Uganda. The genus is distinguished by cleft mandibular incisors, short glossae and subrectanguIar paraglossae, and smooth posterior margin of the terga. Glossidion belongs to the Baetis complex of genera and is hypothesized to be closely related to Labiobaetis Novikova & Kluge. Two species, G. demoulini sp. n. and G. mysticum sp. n., are descriptionbed, and their diagnoses are discussed.
