Abstract

The species of the Melaloncha cingulata-group are revised. The group consists of two described species, M. cingulata Borgmeier and M. lamellata Borgmeier, plus the following nine new to science: M. crassa, M. elviae, M. hirticula, M. nudibasalis, M. pertica, M. prosopica, M. succincta, M. thompsonae, and M. variabilis. Two monophyletic species groups are proposed: the M. lamellata-subgroup (M. lamellata, M. pertica, and M. thompsonae) and the M. cingulata-subgroup (all other species). Probable stingless bee hosts are identified for three species.
