Abstract

The male imago of Languidipes corporaali (Lestage, 1922), new status (Ephemeroptera: Polymitarcyidae: Asthenopodinae), is described for the first time based upon adults associated with females. The male is distinguished from Povilla by the large eyes, short tarsi of forelegs, absence of a styliger plate and a triangular basal cell at the fork of CuA-CuP in the forewing. Based on examination of series of females of Povilla from localities in Africa and Asia, an apparent third intercalary in the Cu field of Povilla females is a not infrequent population variation in the genus. Following examination of the holotype photograph of Povilla adusta, the present generic concept of Povilla is considered valid. New records for Languidipes corporaali include Malaysia and Thailand.
