Abstract

Imagoes, subimagoes and eggs of Indobaetis costai Muller-Liebenau & Morihara 1982 are described for the first time; additional larval characters of I. costai and I. starmuehlneri Muller-Liebenau & Morihara 1982 are reported. A new species Indobaetis microfolius sp. n. is described based on larvae, a male subimago reared from larva and a female subimago extracted from a mature larva. Baetis michaelohubbardi (Selva-kumar et al. 2012) comb. n. is proposed for a species originally attributed to Indobaetis, based on the presence of hind protoptera, three maxillary dentisetae and other characteristics. Newly discovered diversity within the holophyletic taxon Indobaetis disproves a formerly erected idea about the close relationship of Indobaetis and the muticus-group. Thus, the senior genus-group name for the holophylum including the muticus-group is Takobia/g1; in rank-based nomenclature the names Alainites Waltz & McCafferty (in Waltz et al.) 1994 and Acerbaetis Kang & Yang (in Kang et al.) 1994 should be junior s
