Description of Coeliccia phamiha sp. n. from central Vietnam (Odonata: Platycnemididae)


Coeliccia phamiha sp. n. (holotype male and paratype female from Dak Et bridge, Deo Lo Xo, Phuoc Son district, Quang Nam Province, Central Vietnam, deposited in zoological collection of Duy Tan University) is described based on both sexes. Judging by the structure of genital ligula and appendages of the male and prothorax of the female it seems close to C. mientrung Kompier & Phan, 2017, but it is easily separated by its markings and structural details. Differential diagnosis between the new species and its allied species is provided.
