    Description

    Three new species of the genus Mahunka, 1972 are described and figured: A. and A. elegans spp. n. phoretic on Hylobius pales (Herbst) (Insecta: Curculionidae) from USA and A. minor sp. n. from rotten fir bark in Poland. The genus Acanthomastix is rediagnosed according to supposed nonsexual female dimorphism, already known from its sister genus Formicomotes Sevastianov, 1980. Specific status and some aspects of biology within the genus are briefly discussed.
