Description Six Oriental species of the genus Ptecticus Loew described by G. Enderlein (1914) are revised. Only one of them (Gongrozus vulpianus) was recently elucidated as a valid species being conspecific with P. rectinervis de Meijere (cf. Rozkošný, De Jong 2001). P sumatranus and P. violaceus are confirmed as valid species, three species (G.nodivena, P. ochraceus and G. sauteri) are interpreted as definitive synonyms of other species. Lectotypes are designated for P. aurifer, P. longipennis, P. melanurus and P. violacea.
