Abstract

Examination of the holotype of Micropsectra simantoneoa Sasa, Suzuki and Sakai, 1998 revealed that the species should be transferred to the genus Zavrelia. The male adult has hairy eyes, antennae with 10 flagellomeres, a costa ending proximal to the tip of M3+4, and a short and flattened superior volsella. This is the second Zavrelia species from Japan, and the 11th in the world.
