Abstract

The genus Pseudoliogenys Moser is reviewed and placed in the tribe Diplotaxini based on morphological characters. Liogenys bidentula Fairmaire is transferred to the genus Pseudoliogenys, with Pseudoliogenys flavida Moser as a junior synonym (new synonymy). Lectotypes are designated for both names. The gender of the genus Pseudoliogenys is clarified as feminine for the purposes of nomenclature.
