Diagnosis

The males of M. kenyaensis gen. et comb. nov. can easily be distinguished from those of all other species of Manzuma gen. nov. by dorsal bulge on palpal tibia ( Fig. 84 View Figs 83–94 ) and palpal patella brown or brownish yellow dorsally, flattened, almost without hairs, iridescent ( Fig. 102 View Figs 95–106 ). The females of M. kenyaensis gen. et comb. nov. can easily be distinguished from other Manzuma gen. nov. species by long introductory parts of the insemination ducts ( Figs 90–91, 93 View Figs 83–94 ).
