Abstract

Luciola (Pygoluciola) kinabalua, new species (Coleoptera: Lampyridae) is described from males and females; a key to males of the five known species of this subgenus is presented; morphology of the male and female terminal abdomen is described and it is suggested that a copulation clamp may function here. Continued cladistic analysis including this new species, which resembles the type P. stylifer Wittmer. 1939. contines to place Luciola (pygoluciola) in a medial clade between Luciola and Atyphella.
