Abstract

Abstract A new genus of Mesoveliidae, Seychellovelia, with a single included species, S. hygrobia n. sp., is described from the islands of Silhouette and Mahe in the granitic Seychelles. This new taxon is compared to other mesoveliid genera, and its key morphological characters illustrated. Information is also provided on the habitat preferences of S. hygrobia, and an updated distributional map of mesoveliid genera on a world basis is provided, accompanied by a discussion of zoogeographical implications.
