Abstract

Three new subgenera and 14 new species of the genus Mecysmoderes Schoenh. are described from India, Southern China, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia. The new subgenera are Mecysmodemassubgen. n. with the type species Mecysmoderes constricticollissp. n. (Vietnam); Burattinosubgen. n. with the type species Mecysmoderes filirostrissp. n. (Vietnam), and Maurattinosubgen. n. with the type species Mecysmoderes steinerisp. n. (Malaysia). Mecysmoderes (Xenysmoderes) intermediussp. n. from Vietnam is also described and 10 species of the subgenus Watanabesaruzo Yoshitake et Yamauchi, 2002, stat. n.: Mecysmoderes thompsonisp. n. (southern India), M. vicariussp. n. (China: Yunnan), M. helenaesp. n. (southern India), M. longicollissp. n. (China: Guangdong), M. pascoeisp. n. (Malaysia), M. giganteussp. n. (Vietnam), M. maaisp. n. (Thailand), M. oroszisp. n. (Thailand), M. davidisp. n. (China: Guangdong), and M. singaporensissp. n. (Singapore). A key to 10 new species of the subgenus Watanabesaruzo is given. Watanabesaruzo yunnanensis J. Huang, Zhang et Pelsue, 2006 is transferred to Mecysmoderes where a new combination Mecysmoderes (Burattino) yunnanensis J. Huang, Zhang et Pelsue, 2006, comb. n. is tentatively made.
