Abstract

Riffle bugs in the genus Rhagovelia have diversified extensively on the island of Madagascar. The current paper defines and segregates a distinct set of species within this endemic assemblage as the diabolica group, containing the previously described species R. diabolica Poisson, R. beangonyi Poisson, and R. milloti Poisson, as well as the following new species described herein: R. compacta and R. suarezensis from northern Madagascar; R. manankazo and R. angulata from central Madagascar; and R. madecassa, R. scupturata and R. origami from eastern Madagascar. Figures of key morphological characters, including male parameres are provided for all species, accompanied by distribution maps.
