New info on the status Orthochirus krishnai

Zambre & Bastawade have been able to describe the male of Orthochirus krishnai Tikader & Bastawade, 1983, which was previously known only from two female specimens. O. krishnai was considered Nomen dubium by Kovarik (2004), but the authors of the present paper concludes that O krishnai is a valid species.

No abstract in the article.
