Abstract

A taxonomic study of the genus Laccotrephes Stål, 1866 from Vietnam is presented. Four species of the genus Laccotrephes have been identified in Vietnam: Laccotrephes pfeiferiae (Ferrari, 1888), Laccotrephes longicaudatus Nieser, Zettel & Chen, 2009, Laccotrephes simulatus Montandon, 1913 and Laccotrephes grossus (Fabricius, 1787). The female of the species Laccotrephes longicaudatus Nieser, Zettel & Chen is described for the first time. A key to the species of genus Laccotrephes known from Vietnam is also provided.
