Abstract

Loreta (Bahitella) takiyae sp. n. is described from Peru and the type species of the genus, L. ornaticeps Linnavuori, is re-illustrated. Three species previously included in the genus, i.e., L. bifasciata Linnavuori and DeLong, L. sexmaculata Linnavuori and DeLong, and L. vista DeLong, are considered species incertae sedis. Two previously described species are transferred to other genera, i.e., L. albopunctata DeLong is transferred to Tumupasa (Deltocephalini) and L. fiski DeLong is transferred to Haldorus (Deltocephalini). A key to the retained species is provided for males.
