Further new species of the genus Dolichoctis Schmidt-G bel from New Guinea and surrounding islands (Insecta, Coleoptera, Carabidae, Lebiinae)  [PDF]
Baehr, M.
Animal Biodiversity and Conservation , 2003,
Abstract: Two new species of the carabid genus Dolichoctis Schmidt-G bel from New Guinea and New Ireland are described: D. glabripennis of the striata-group (sensu Baehr, 1999) of the nominate subgenus, from New Guinea, and D. novaeirlandiae of the subgenus Spinidolichoctis Baehr, from the island of New Ireland. In New Guinea, D. glabripennis replaces D. microdera Andrewes of the Greater Sunda Islands and Moluccas that apparently does not occur in New Guinea. D. novaeirlandiae is the first record of a Dolichoctis from this island and it is outstanding due to its very short, only dentate elytra apex.

Calleida desenderi, new species from Ecuador (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Lebiinae)  [cached]
Achille Casale
ZooKeys , 2011, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.100.1522
Abstract: Calleida desenderi Casale, sp. n., is described from Ecuador, Napo Province, surroundings of San Rafael. The new taxon is mostly characterized by the head and appendages rufous, the disc of elytra with marked metallic green reflection, the median lobe of aedeagus ring-like, and the endophallus with a long, twisted flagellum. A key for identification of the closer Neotropical species described so far is also provided.
New or little-known species of the genus Amphimenes Bates, 1873 (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Lebiinae) from Vietnam  [cached]

ZooKeys , 2010, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.65.503
Abstract: Twelve new species of the genus Amphimenes Bates, 1873 are described from Vietnam: Amphimenes maculatus, sp. n., Amphimenes bidoupensis, sp. n., Amphimenes gracilis, sp. n., Amphimenes montanus, sp. n., Amphimenes giganteus, sp. n., Amphimenes medius, sp. n., Amphimenes minutus, sp. n., Amphimenes rufipes, sp. n., Amphimenes reflexicollis, sp. n., Amphimenes planicollis, sp. n., Amphimenes nitidus, sp. n., and Amphimenes kabakovi, sp. n.. Amphimenes rugulipennis Bates, 1892, comb. n., is transferred from the genus Brachichila Chaudoir, 1869 and is redescribed from fresh material. A key to all congeners is provided, these being arranged into five new species-groups. Adults of the rugulipennis- and piceolus-groups show subcortical habits, while those of the medius-, rufipes- and planicollis- groupsare herpetobiotic, resulting in such morphological adaptations as partly reduced eyes, missing wings and adnate elytra.

ZooNotes , 2011,
Abstract: The rare myrmecophilous beetle Paussus turcicus I. Frivaldszky von Frivald, 1835 (Coleoptera, Carabidae) is reported in three new localities in Bulgaria and one in the European part of Turkey. It has been found in nests of the typical ant host Pheidole pallidula (Nylander, 1849) (Hymenoptera, Formicidae). It is reported for first time from Sakar and Eastern Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria.

Abstract: En enero de 2003, se realizó un viaje de campa a con el fin de recolectar materiales en áreas poco prospectadas de la estepa patagónica de Mendoza y Neuquén, Argentina, así como en ambientes de bosques de Nothofagus en la provincia de Neuquén. Las recolecciones se realizaron en forma manual, usando trampas con cebo y trampas de luz de mercurio. El material recolectado permite citar por primera vez para la Argentina los géneros Nothobroscus Roig-Ju ent & Ball y Mimophilorizus Mateu (Carabidae), Callyntra Solier y Homocyrtus Reitter (Tenebrionidae). Además, se citan por primera vez para la Argentina las especies Cnemalobus sulciferus Philippi (Carabidae), Allidiostoma landbecki (Philippi), Macrodactylus chilensis Solier y Brachysternus marginatus (Germain) (Scarabeidae) y Pycnosiphorus philippii (Westwood) (Lucanidae). Se provee una breve descripción de los ambientes en donde estas especies fueron encontradas. A short expedition to northern Patagonia was made in January 2003. The main goal of the trip was to survey the diversity of some families of Coleoptera in the insufficient explored steppes in Mendoza and Neuquén provinces, Argentina and Nothofagus forests of Neuquén province. The techniques included manual collection and the use of different kinds of traps, such as with bite or artificial light of mercury. The study of the material revealed four new genera records and four new species records for the country: Nothobroscus Roig-Ju ent & Ball and Mimophilorizus Mateu (Carabidae), Callyntra Solier and Homocyrtus Reitter (Tenebrionidae) are the new genus records. Cnemalobus sulciferus Philippi (Carabidae), Allidiostoma landbecki (Philippi), Macrodactylus chilensis Solier, and Brachysternus marginatus (Germain) (Scarabeidae), and Pycnosiphorus philippii (Westwood) (Lucanidae) are the new species records. A brief description of the habitats where the species were collected is provided.

Revista de la Sociedad Entomol?3gica Argentina , 2005,
Abstract: RESUMEN. Las Trechini constituyen una tribu de Carabidae distribuida ampliamente en la región Andino Patagónica. A pesar de que existen varias revisiones parciales de esta tribu para la Argentina y Chile, es muy común hallar especies nuevas, debido sobre todo a la prospección de áreas no exploradas. En este aporte se describe una especie nueva del género Trechisibus Jeannel del Cerro Nevado (Mendoza, Argentina). Por sus características morfológicas pertenece al grupo de especies depressus. Se describe e ilustra el adulto de esta especie nueva, se provee una clave para la identificación de las especies del grupo depressus y se discuten algunos aspectos de la distribución de estas especies. ABSTRACT. Trechini is a tribe of Carabidae (Coleoptera) widely distributed in the Andean Patagonian region in South America. In spite of several partial revisions of the tribe for Argentina and Chile, it is very common to find new species due to the research of unexplored areas. In the present paper, a new species of the genus Trechisibus Jeannel from the Cerro Nevado (Mendoza, Argentina) is described. Based on its morphological features the new species is considered as a member of the depressus group. The adult of the new species is described and illustrated, a key for the identification of the species of the depressus group is provided, and some aspects of the distribution of the group are discussed.
