Abstract:

Lonchodes catori Kirby and Lonchodes hosei (Kirby) are redescribed and distribution maps are given. Synonymies are listed for these two species and for the West Malaysian species Lonchodes brevipes Gray. The features distinguishing the closely related L. brevipes and L. catori are listed and illustrated. Lectotypes are selected for L. catori and L. mindanaense (Brunner). Lonchodes mindanaense is not a synonym of L. hosei. Hermogenes cristatus Kirby is a new junior synonym of L. hosei. Dixippus jejunus Brunner is a new junior synonym of L. catori Kirby. Dixippus sodalis Kirby is not a synonym of L. brevipes.
