Taxonomic notes on Onthophagus (Palaeonthophagus) lemuroides d’Orbigny, 1898 and O. (P.) fortigibber Reitter, 1909 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae: Onthophagini)
- The taxonomic position of Onthophagus (Palaeonthophagus) lemuroides d’Orbigny, 1898 and Onthophagus
(Palaeonthophagus) fortigibber Reitter, 1909 is discussed (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae: Onthophagini).
A key to the species is given. Photos of type specimens of the two taxa and significant chromatic varieties, and
drawings of aedeagi are presented.
A new genus and species of armored scale insect (Hemiptera: Diaspididae) from Australia found in the historic Koebele Collection of the California Academy of Sciences
John W. Dooley III
Gregory A. Evans
- A new genus and species of armored scale insect (Hemiptera: Diaspididae), Protomorgania koebelei
Dooley and Evans, is described and illustrated from specimens collected by Albert Koebele on Pittosporum sp.
(Pittosporaceae) in Australia around the year 1900. A key to the genera of armored scale insects similar to Protomorgania
and known to occur in Australia is provided.
A preliminary report on the World species of Bemisia Quaintance and Baker and its congeners (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) with a comparative analysis of morphological variation and its role in the recognition of species
- Extreme economic effects globally of various populations of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius)
(Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) led to an in depth study of the morphology of that species as well as that of
numerous other species of whiteflies in the genus Bemisia Quaintance and Baker and other similar appearing
species. The data collected are presented here as illustrations of the puparia (fourth instar nymphal stages)
and discussions of morphology as it relates to species and generic separations within this closely knit group
of insects. A brief history of the pest outbreaks of B. tabaci is given and an overview of the important
morphological characteristics of aleyrodine whiteflies is provided. Each of the eighty illustrations is
accompanied by a discussion of the more important aspects of morphology.
Description of the female of Malukandra heterostyla (Lameere, 1902) (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Parandrinae)
- The female of Malukandra heterostyla (Lameere, 1902) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) is described and
figured for the first time. An identification key to Malukandra is provided.
Notes on distribution and hosts of Hylesinus mexicanus (Wood) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), a pest on Olea europaea Linnaeus
Jesús N. Rómero
Thomas H. Atkinson
- Significant new host and distribution records are presented for Hylesinus mexicanus (Wood) (Coleoptera:
Curculionidae: Scolytinae), including its pest potential on cultivated olives. Hylesinus mexicanus is similar to H.
fasciatus LeConte and information presented here suggests that the distinctiveness of these two species needs to be
New species, records, and a synonymy of African Sisyridae (Neuroptera)
Oliver S. Flint, Jr.
- Two species of the genus Sisyra Burmeister (Neuroptera: Sisyridae), S. cameroonensis, n. sp., and S.
gruwelli, n. sp., are described from the African Republic of Cameroon. Sisyra pallida Meinander is synonymized with
Sisyra delicata Smithers, new synonymy, after comparison of the types of the former with topotypic paratypes of the
latter. Type material of Sisyra nilotica Tjeder appears to be lost. Examples of Sisyra are recorded from Nigeria,
Ethiopia and Uganda. A second species of the endemic African genus, Sisyborina, Monserrat, S. scitula, n. sp., is
described from Cameroon, Guinea, and Zambia.
Description of a new species of Paranthaclisis Banks from Florida (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae)
Lionel A. and Stange
Robert B. Miller
- A new species of Paranthaclisis Banks, P. floridensis (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae), is described from
Florida and compared to the other described species in the genus. Keys to the adults and larvae are provided.
Two new species of the genus Pahamunaya Schmid (Trichoptera: Polycentropodidae) from Vietnam
Tatiana I. Arefina-Armitage
Brian J. Armitage
- Two new species of the genus Pahamunaya Schmid (Trichoptera: Polycentropodidae), P. talon sp. n. and P. spinifera sp. n., from Vietnam are described and illustrated. Examination of the holotype male of P. khoii Oláh and Johanson, in combination with an additional specimen of the same species, revealed new characters. New illustrations for this species are provided.
A new species of Stenorrhachus McLachlan from Chile (Neuroptera: Nemopteridae) with biological notes
Robert B. Miller
Lionel A. Stange
- A new species of Stenorrhachus (McLachlan), S. chilensis (Neuroptera: Nemopteridae), is described from
Chile with biological observations of Stenorrhachus walkeri (McLachlan). A key to the two species is provided as well
as diagnoses of the adults and of the larva of Stenorrhachus walkeri.
A taxonomic review of the ancora species group of Graphipterus Latreille (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
Jonathan R. Mawdsley
- The taxonomy of the ancora species group of Graphipterus Latreille (Coleoptera: Carabidae) is reviewed
and seven species are recognized, all from southern Africa: Graphipterus ancora Dejean, Graphipterus cordiger
Dejean, Graphipterus distinctus Péringuey (new status), Graphipterus fasciatus Chaudoir, Graphipterus fritschi
Chaudoir, Graphipterus wahlbergi Boheman (new status), and Graphipterus westwoodi Brême (new status).
Diagnostic features are provided for each species and adult specimens of each species are illustrated.
