Systematics of the american katydids (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae). Communication 5

This communication deals with a key to subgenera of the Neotropical genus Theia Brunner-Wattenwyl, 1891

(Phaneropterinae) including here the former genera Dolichocercus Rehn et Hebard, 1914, Oxyprorella Giglio-
Tos, 1898 and Theiella Cadena-Castañeda, 2014, as well as with descriptions of some new taxa in the genus Theia

(Th. ucayali sp. nov., Th. morona sp. nov., Th. carinata sp. nov., Th. amazonica levis subsp. nov., Th. andina ecuadori
subsp. nov.) and in the subfamilies Conocephalinae (Cestrophorini trib. nov., Acanthacara ridiculosa sp. nov.) and
Meconematinae (Phlugis gerana sp. nov., Phlugiola? appendicula sp. nov.). Moreover, redescriptions of Th. dives
(Giglio-Tos, 1898) and Th. misera (Brunner-Wattenwyl, 1878), comb. nov. are given on the base of study of their
previously unknown males; and Odontophlugis ramirezi (Barranco Vega, 2013), comb. nov. is transferred from the
genus Phlugis Stål, 1861 to the genus Odontophlugis Gorochov, 1998 (Meconematinae).
