ABSTRACT

The review and summary of research history on Aeropus Gistel from Mongolian Plateau were carried out. Simultaneously, the comparative observation was conducted on the male genitalia and forewing veins between Aeropus sibiricus (Linnaeus, 1767) and Aeropus licenti (Chang, 1939) distributed in the Mongolian Plateau. Mongolian Plateau is the main distribution area for Aeropus Gistel, where significant differences exists in the morphological characteristics of Epiphallus and Phallic complex between Aeropus sibiricus and Aeropus licenti, which is the reliable basis for identifying the two species.
