Abstract

A new species-group of the dobsonfly genus Protohermes is proposed, the Protohermes xanthodes species-group. Three species from eastern Asia belonging to the new species-group are redescribed and illustrated. Phylogenetic relationships among the species in this group, as well as the biogeography of these species, are discussed on the basis of a cladistic analysis.
