Abstract

Species possessing mvo: Protaphorura bakhchisaraica sp. nov. and P. salsa sp. nov. from two peculiar habitats: xerothermic bushes in Ukraine (Crimea) and a salt lake shore in Russia (South Siberia) are described. Two other species with this organ, Protaphorura ianstachia Yosii, 1972 and P. stiriaca (Stach, 1946), are redescribed, discussed and their lectotypes designed. An identification key to all known Protaphorura species having mvo is given. The structure and arrangement of the organ is applied as a sharp diagnostic character at the species level. Se describen como nuevas especies para la ciencia Protaphorura bakhchisaraica sp. nov y P. salsa sp. nov., especies que poseen machos con organo ventral y que proceden de la maquia de Ucrania (Crimea) y de la costa de un lago salado de Rusia (Siberia). Se redescriben tambien dos especies mas con este organo: Protaphorura ianstachia Yosii, 1972 and P. stiriaca (Stach, 1946), y se designan los lectotipos de ambas. En este trabajo se da una clave mundial para todas las especies de Protaphorura con organo ventral en los machos. La estructura y disposicion en diferentes esternitos de las quetas del organo ventral se utiliza como on buen caracter para la distincion entre las especies.
