Abstract

The genus Jucundus Distant, 1910 is removed from synonymy with Rheumatogonus Kirkaldy, 1909. Jucundus is defined and compared with other genera of Ptilomerinae. The type species J. custodiendus Distant, 1910 from South India is redescribed, and a lectotype is designated. Jucundus vittatus (Esaki, 1928) is a new combination for Rheumatogonus vittatus Esaki, 1928 from Sri Lanka. Die Synonymie der Gattung Jucundus Distant, 1910 mit Rheumatogonus Kirkaldy, 1909 wird aufgehoben. Jucundus wird definiert und mit anderen Gattungen der Ptilomerinae verglichen. Die Typus-Art J. custodiendus Distant, 1910 aus Sudindien wird wiederbeschrieben, und ein Lectotypus wird designiert. Jucundus vittatus Esaki, 1928 ist eine neue Kombination fur Rheumatogonus vittatus (Esaki, 1928) aus Sri Lanka.
