Abstract

The genus Ciulfina Giglio-Tos includes a number of small tree-trunk dwelling species of praying mantids that are found through eastern Queensland and northern Australia. Three new species of Ciulfina: C. baldersoni, C. klassi and C. rentzi and one existing species C. biseriata (Westwood) are formally described on the basis of male genital morphology. A key to the identification of Ciulfina based on genital morphology is also provided.
