Roy Kleukers - 14 November 2011

In this paper the new subgenus Hamatopoecilimon is erected. This group consists of Poecilomon hamatus and related species, the most basal group within Poecilimon. The species included in this group are: P. hamatus, P. paros, P. klausgerhardi, P. deplanatus, P. ikariensis and P. unispinosus. The morphology and bioacoustics of these species are treated.
