REDESCRIPTION OF PANTECPHYLUS MAJOR GRIFFINI, 1909, REPRESENTING A NEW SUBGENUS (ORTHOPTEROIDEA, PSEUDOPHYLLIDAE)
AbstractPantecphylus major Griffini was redescribed and regarded as subgenus Griffinius n. subgen. The species is remarkably different from other species of the genus. Only adult females and a young nymph were available. They were separated by the size of body, a bilobate fastigium verticis, the lack of a transverse sulcus of the pronotum, and the presence of two rows of long hairy spines on all femora. The body lenght of adult females was 37-38 mm, the females of the other species measuring no more than 34 mm.
