Abstract


Givarbela steinbachi was described as a new genus and species by Clench (1957), based on 21 specimens from central Bolivia (Prov. del Sara; Buena Vista and Rio Japacani). He indicated that Givarbela (Figs 1‒8) belongs to the Langsdorfia-Givira group of genera but differs from them by the following combination of characters: “R2 stalked with R3-R4, R5 free; the long palpi; absence of fore tibial epiphysis; absence of median cell-vein on fore wing and the open cell-end there; stalked M2-M3 on hind wing; absence of all but traces of a single hind wing anal vein; short hind wing cell; deeply excised hind wing costa“ (Clench 1957).
