Abstract

The genus Dimophora Förster is recorded from Japan for the first time. Japanese species of the genus are revised and three new species, Dimophora japonica n. sp., D. nigra n. sp. and D. parva n. sp., are recognizerd and described. Male genitalia of D. japonica and D. nigra are described and these are the first description of male genitalia for the genus. A key to the Palearctic species is provided.
