Apocryptus, Uchida, Indicus, Flavofacies


The genus Apocryptus was established by Uchida in 1932 for the species Apocryptus issikii. The genus is distinguished by truncate apical margin with a pair of tubercles at the middle. The genus is known by two species viz., Apocryptus tikari Gupta & Gupta, 1983 and Apocryptus flavofacies Gupta & Gupta, 1983 from India. A new species of Apocryptus, Apocryptus indicus is described from India as a key for identification.
