Abstract

Three new species of Xenolepis Diakonoff, 1973 are described from Thailand: X. fissurarta Thonongtor & Pinkaew, sp. nov., X. apicula Thonongtor & Pinkaew, sp. nov., and X. cultrata Thonongtor & Pinkaew, sp. nov. The genus was previously known from Indonesia and India, so the new species represent the first records of the genus from Thailand. Illustrations of adults and male genitalia are provided. Females of the genus remain unknown. The new taxa increase the number of described Xenolepis species to five.
