S.V. Kazantsev

Abstract. A new genus Kurbatovia gen. nov. is erected for Dexoris chome Bocák, Grebennikov et Masek, 2013. Four new species, Dexoris (Elgodexoris) rwandensis sp. nov., D. (E.) nyungwensis sp. nov., D. (E.) svetlanae sp. nov. and D. (E.) maikoensis sp. nov., are described from Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A key to species of the subgenus Elgodexoris Bocák et Bocáková, 1988 is provided. Mimolibnetinae is revalidated as a distinct subfamily.
