Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Draconirvana, gen. n., is described and illustrated based on a single new species D. siamensis, from Thailand. The new genus is morphologically intermediate between Evacanthini and Nirvanini but is placed in the latter tribe based on its depressed form and the incomplete longitudinal carina on the face.
