Cristian C. Lucañas

Abstract


The cockroach subfamily Anaplectinae and the genus Anaplecta Burmeister are recorded for the first time from the Philippines. Anaplecta anncajanoae, n. sp., is here described as a species new to science. A. anncajanoae is distinct from other Anaplecta species by the serration of its tarsal claws and the structure of the male genitalia. Two other probably undescribed Anaplecta species are noted from Davao and Leyte.

Key words: Anaplecta anncajanoae; Blattodea; museum specimens; new species; range extension.
