Abstract


In the present study, a new species of Rhynchobelba, R. ozkani n. sp., is described and investigated by scanning electron microscopy. Also, a new locality and redescription of Nanhermannia nana (Nicolet, 1855) is given. The new species Rhynchobelba ozkani n. sp. differs from the other species of the genus Rhynchobelba by the shape of rostrum, body dimensions, length and shape of sensillus and type of rostral seta.
