Abstract

The phylogenetic position of the genus Diarsia and the taxonomic and phylogenetic significance of male and female genital structures of Diarsia species are discussed; certain lock-and-key characters are described. Based on the genital structures, monophyletic species groups and some major biogeographical trends within the genus are outlined. Six new species (D. gozmanyi, D. scotodichroa, D. metadichroa, D. taidactyla, D. metatorva, D. protodahlii spp. n.) are described. With 161 figures.
