ABSTRACT
Two new species of Varma Distant, 1906, V. falcata Chang & Chen, sp. n. (China: Guizhou) and V. lobata Chang & Chen, sp. n. (China: Guizhou) are described and illustrated. The female genitalia of four speices including two known species are described and illustrated for the first time. The diagnostic characters of this genus are redefined. A checklist to the species of Varma in China is given. The Keys on male and female genitalia to the Chinese species of Varma are provided.

No MeSH data available.


Female genitalia. 16–19Varma falcata Chang & Chen, sp. n. 16 Female genitalia, lateral view 17 Female genitalia, ventral view 18 Gonapophyses IX, ventral view 19 Gonoplace, ventral view 20–23Varma gibbosa Wang & Liang 20 Female genitalia, ventral view 21 Gonapophyses VIII, lateral view 22 Gonapophyses IX, ventral view 23 Gonoplace, ventral view. Scale bars = 0.5 mm (16–23).

Figure 3: Female genitalia. 16–19Varma falcata Chang & Chen, sp. n. 16 Female genitalia, lateral view 17 Female genitalia, ventral view 18 Gonapophyses IX, ventral view 19 Gonoplace, ventral view 20–23Varma gibbosa Wang & Liang 20 Female genitalia, ventral view 21 Gonapophyses VIII, lateral view 22 Gonapophyses IX, ventral view 23 Gonoplace, ventral view. Scale bars = 0.5 mm (16–23).

Mentions: Gonapophyses VIII (first valvula) (Figs 16, 21, 35, 40) saw-like, strongly sclerotized, with 6-8 distinct teeth on dorsal margin, ventral margin with about 3-4 distinct teeth. Gonapophyses IX (second valvula) (Figs 18, 22, 35, 37, 41) degradated, triangular. Gonoplace (third valvula) (Figs 19, 23, 38, 42) stout, membranous, formed about 10-14 teeth on ventral margin and apical margin (Figs 19, 23, 38, 42). In ventral view, endogonocoxal lobe (Figs 17, 20, 36, 39) not bilaterally symmetrical, in the base of the gonapophyses VIII produced mesad irregular process. Sternite VII with posterior margin depressed or convex (Figs 17, 20, 36, 39).
