Two new cave-dwelling Prionoglarididae from Venezuela and Namibia
(Psocodea: ‘Psocoptera’: Trogiomorpha).

- The new genus Speleopsocus
Lienhard gen. n. is described for a strongly cave-adapted (troglobite) new
species from Venezuela, Speleopsocus chimanta Lienhard sp. n. This is the
first New World representative of the subfamily Prionoglaridinae. A special
structure on the foretarsus of this species is described and interpreted as an
antenna cleaner. The new species Sensitibilla etosha Lienhard & Holuša
sp. n., belonging to the subfamily Speleketorinae, is described from a cave
in Namibia. This is the fourth species known of this genus which is endemic
to southern Africa.
