Abstract

The laevigata-group of the genus Dolichogenidea from China is revised, with 26 new species described and illustrated, i.e., D. aberrantenna Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. aegeriphagous Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. ancylotergita Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. anteruga Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. biconcava Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. brevifacialis Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. changbaiensis Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. concentricus Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. dioryctriphagous Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. fumeus Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. funalicauda Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. gansuensis Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. indicaphagous Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. longivena Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. mesocanalis Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. obscurugosus Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. paracostulae Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. parametacarp Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. partergita Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. poliobrevis Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. polystinelliphagous Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. sandwico Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. spinulicula Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. stictoscutella Liu & Chen, sp. n.; D. testacea Liu & Chen, sp. n., and D. unicarina Liu & Chen, sp. n. Seven species, namely D. breviventris (Ratzeburg, 1848), D. litae (Nixon,1972), D. mycale (Nixon, 1972), D. nixosiris (Papp,1976), D. sicarius (Marshall,1885), D. sophiae (Papp, 1972), and D. turkmenus (Telenga,1955), are newly recorded in China. One species, D. jilinensis Chen et Song, 2004, is synonymized with D. purdus Papp, 1977. Three new combinations, i.e., D. sugae (Watanabe, 1932), D. hamakii (Watanabe, 1932) and D. absonus (Muesebeck, 1965) are proposed. Phalonia epilinana Linne (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) is newly recorded as a host of D. sicarius (Marshall). A key to the Chinese species of this species-group is provided.
