Abstract

Three new species of the genus Archaeoglenes Brown are described: Archaeoglenes gomyi Iwan and Kamiński (Réunion), Archaeoglenes loebli Iwan and Kamiński (Mauritius), and Archaeoglenes triplehorni Iwan and Kamiński (New Caledonia). Morphology and anatomy of the newly described species are investigated using micro-CT techniques. Archaeoglenes gomyi and A. loebli extend the generic range to the Afrotropical realm. Distributional data concerning all known representatives of Archaeoglenes are revised and discussed. Archaeoglenes novaeguineae Kaszab, 1982 is proposed as a synonym of Archaeoglenes baloghi Kaszab, 1982. The 5-5-4 tarsal formula is reported for the first time for Archaeoglenes (A. baloghi). The newly obtained morphological and anatomical data are incorporated into the taxonomic concept of Archaeoglenes.
