Abstract

Jassus flavostriata Melichar, listed in the genera Jassus (Evans 1955: 301) and Coelidia (Metcalf (1964: 49), was overlooked in the revision of the tribe Coelidiini (Nielson 1982). The species is relegated herein to the genus Lesinda McKamey, in the tribe Equeefini sensu Theron nec tribe Coelidiini sensu Nielson, with descriptions and illustrations of the male genitalia for the first time. Lesinda Mckamey is a replacement name for Selinda Theron 1986, preoccupied by Selinda Moore 1883. Lesinda bruggeni (Theron) is herein new combination for Selinda bruggeni Theron. A male syntype specimen, Jassus flavostriatus Melichar, is herein designated lectotype.
