Memoirs of Museum Victoria Vol 77 p. 105–120 (2018)



Four species of Eiconaxius are known to possess a denticulate median rostral carina: E. antillensis Bouvier, 1905, E. asper Rathbun, 1906, E. cristagalli Faxon, 1893, and E. indicus (De Man, 1907). They are reviewed and two similar new species are described: E. dongshaensis sp. nov., and E. gololobovi sp. nov. A key to distinguish them is presented.
