Neurogenia kamapura Reshchikov, 2014

Taxonomic History / Nomenclature
Neurogenia kamapura Reshchikov, 2014: 125, 128, 130-131.
Diagnosis and Relationships
This species was defined on the basis of propodeal characteristics and the size of the M+Cu tubercle in the fore wing. Some figures are provided by Reshchikov et al. (1914). A few additional figures are provided here based on specimens from the Canadian National Collection (CNC). Fig. 1 is of a female, showing relative size of the ocelli. Figs 2-3 are of the same female and Fig. 4 shows the elongated parameres of the male, typical of members of the species group to which N. kamapura belongs.

This page was assembled by Bob Wharton as part of a larger collaborative effort on the genera of Ctenopelmatinae, and as part of a study of this genus prepared by Heather Hendrickson and Bob Wharton. The work is based on specimens in the Texas A&M University collection as well as material borrowed from China, MRAC, CNC, BMNH, and AEI. We are particularly grateful to Xue-xin Chen, David Wahl, Andy Bennett, Gavin Broad, and Eliane De Coninck for the privilege of examining specimens in their care. This work would also not have been possible without the groundwork provided by Ian Gauld’s study of the Australian and Costa Rican faunas, and we are particularly grateful for his assistance in many aspects of this study. We thank David Wahl for useful feedback throughout our study and to Gavin Broad for exchange of information on Perilissini. Matt Yoder provided considerable assistance with databasing issues, and our use of PURLs ( in this regard follows the example of their use in publications by Norm Johnson. Lauren Ward graciously assisted with image capture, processing, and formatting. Page last updated December, 2014.
