Abstract

Detailed and fully illustrated redescription of Seira pallidipes Reuter, 1895 is given based on specimens from the type locality. Examination of further specimens from the type locality of Seira pillichi Stach, 1930 has shown the identity of these two species justifying their synonymization: that Seira pillichi Stach, 1930 is a junior subjective synonym of Seira pallidipes Reuter, 1895 (syn. nov.). Variability in chaetotaxy is documented and discussed as well.
