AbstractDe Haan (1833, p. 22-23, tab. B (Eudora) tenax (mouthparts)) gives the following latin description of his subgenus Eudora: "Os quadratum. Max. 5arum articuli secundi paralleli, medio in longitudinem sulcati, apice truncati; articuli tertii dilatati, margine superiore emarginati; articuli apicales abbreviati1).
