ABSTRACT
Five species of the subgenus Plesiominettia Shatalkin from the southern China are described as new to science: Minettia (Plesiominettia) flavoscutellata sp. n., Minettia (Plesiominettia) longaciculiformis sp. n., Minettia (Plesiominettia) nigrantennata sp. n., Minettia (Plesiominettia) tridentata sp. n. and Minettia (Plesiominettia) zhejiangica sp. n. One species, Minettia longistylis Sasakawa, is transferred to the subgenus Plesiominettia from Minettia s. str. A key to separate the known species of the subgenus is presented, along with a taxonomic list of species. The type materials of the new species are deposited in the China Agricultural University, Beijing, China (CAUC).

Mentions: Based on combination of the original definition by Shatalkin 2000, and the authors’ observations, Plesiominettia is diagnosed as follows: arista pubescent, rarely bare or short plumose, rays of arista with longest setulae longer than 1/3 height of 1st flagellomere; wing uniformly hyaline, rarely pale brown at base (in Minettia (Plesiominettia) zhejiangica sp. n.); mesonotum with 0–1+2–3 dorsocentral setae (first postsutural dorsocentral setae close to transverse scutal suture or located medially between transverse scutal suture and scutoscutellar suture); acrostichal setulae hair-like, most species with 1–2 pairs of strong setae among them, located at middle of mesonotum or in front of prescutellar acrostichal setae; male genitalia: a pair of postgonites present, postgonites rarely absent; phallic sheath absent, phallus forming a case; female terminalia: spermathecae 1+1 or 1+2. In this subgenus, the body color varies from black (most species, e.g., Minettia (Plesiominettia) divaricata, Fig. 49) to grey pruinose (e.g., Minettia (Plesiominettia) gemmata, Fig. 50) to yellow (e.g., Minettia (Plesiominettia) punctata, Fig. 51).
