The genus Episymploce Bey-Bienko. I. Species chiefly from Java, Sumatra and Borneo (Kalimantan, Sabah, Sarawak). (Dictyoptera: Blattaria, Blattellidae) LOUIS M. ROTH Generic characters for the genus Episymploce are presented. The following 5 known species are redescribed: javana (Hebard) (Java); mjoebergi (Hanitsch) (Sumatra); simplex (Hanitsch) (Sumatra); sundaica (Hebard) (Java, Kalimantan, Laos, North Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Okinawa, Philippines, Sabah, Sarwak, Sumatra, Taiwan, Thailand); ridleyi (Shelford) (Sing- apore, Sumatra). A key is given for the 5 taxa treated in this paper. L. M. Roth, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, 02138, U.S.A. (Correspondence: 81 Brush Hill Road, Sherborn, MA, 01770, U.S.A.) Princis (1969:877; 1971:1162) listed 6 species of Episymploce, only 2 of which (paradoxura and uncinata) belong to the genus; the others are Symploce. At least 39 taxa listed by Princis under Symploce actually belong in Episymploce (Roth 1984, 1985). There are 49 species and 4 subspecies of Episymploce. This, Part I of a series of 6 papers revising the genus, redescribes the following 5 taxa: javana (Hebard), mjoebergi (Hanitsch), simplex (Hanitsch), sundaica (Hebard), and rid- leyi (Shelford). The following museums, and their curators or collection managers loaned me specimens: ANSP Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadel- phia,
