Review of the Inca irroratus species group with description of two new species of Inca LePeletier & Serville, 1828 (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae, Cetoniinae)

  • The Brazilian endemic irroratus species group of the genus Inca (Scarabaeidae, Cetoniinae) is defined and described. This species group is composed of Inca irroratus Chevrolat, 1833 and two new species: I. axeli sp. nov. and I. neglectus sp. nov. One new synonym is proposed: I. irroratus Chevrolat, 1833 = I. burmeisteri Burmeister, 1844 syn. nov. To guarantee nomenclatural stability, a neotype is designated for I. irroratus and a lectotype for I. burmeisteri. A key to all species of Inca and a map with the distribution of the irroratus species group are provided.
