Abstract

Examination of the holotype and comparison to other material reveal that the monotypic genus Longasphaera Bechyné is a junior synonym of Omophoita Chevrolat new synonymy. Therefore, the type species of Longasphaera, L. hispicornis Bechyné is given a new combination, O. hispicornis (Bechyné). Omophoita hispicornis is illustrated for the first time and characteristics of its labral setation that partially define the Bechyné concept of genus Omophoita are discussed.
