Abstract

Pairs or groups of closely related species are a general phenomenon in the genus Chersotis BOISDUVAL, 1840. A phylogenetic and biogeographic analysis is presented, with descriptions of two new species: Chersotis petermarci sp. n. which is the sibling species of Ch. vicina CORTI, 1930, and Chersotis shandur sp. n. which belongs to the Ch. juvenis species-group. Species-groups in Chersotis, their significant morphological characters and phylogenetic relationships are considered. With 66 figures.
