AbstractWhile the genus Serpusia Karsch, 1891 shows great sexual dimorphism in size, the genus Auloserpusia, to which it is related, also displays conspicuous sexual dimorphism in colour. The males are much smaller than the females in both genera. In A. chopardi Dirsh and A. potamites sp. n. the female is generally uniform green in colour on the body, the males brightly coloured with g-reen and yellow-ochre markings. The females are very inconspicuous in the natural habitat. In contrast, A. in,alasmanota sp. nov. and A. charadrophila sp. nov. have rather uniformly coloured males and brightly coloured females. A. ochrobalia sp. nov. shows intermediate colour facies between these two main groups, the males having a pattern akin to that in A. chopardi Dirsh, but in shades of brown, and the females being similar to those of A. charadrophila sp. nov.
