Abstract

Our recent reexamination of Nosekiella Rusek, 1974 has shown that only the type species Nosekiella danica (Condé, 1947) and Nosekiella urasi Imadaté, 1981 should remain in this genus. Nosekiella condei (Tuxen, 1955) and Nosekiella hoogstraali Nosek, 1980 differ from N. danica and N. urasi in the number of anterior setae on the metanotum. N. condei is transferred into Vesiculentomon Rusek, 1974 because of its possession of four pairs of anterior setae on the metanotum and a baculiform sensilium tl. N. hoogstraali differs from both N. danica and N. urasi in having a claviform foretarsal sensilium tl, two pairs of anterior setae on metanotum, and four pairs of anterior setae, and the anterior position of P3 on tergites II-VI. N. hoogstraali is transferred into Sugaentidus Imadaté, 1978. The original descriptions are corrected and supplemented with new characters, including head chaetotaxy, seta length, and porotaxy.
