A revision of the genus Kaszabister Mazur (Histeridae, Histerinae, Exosternini).

Dégallier N, Mazur S, Tishechkin AK, Caterino MS - Zookeys (2012)

Bottom Line: The species are principally known from the subtropics of South America, with one in Central America.Lectotypes are designated for Kaszabister rubellus and Kaszabister ferrugineus, and a key is provided for all the species.Ants of the genus Solenopsis Westwood, mainly Solenopsis invicta Buren and Solenopsis saevissima (Smith), are documented as hosts of three of the four species.

ABSTRACT
We revise the four species of Kaszabister Mazur, 1972, one of which, Kaszabister barrigaisp. n., is described as new. The other species in the genus are Kaszabister rubellus (Erichson, 1834), Kaszabister ferrugineus (Kirsch, 1873) and Kaszabister carinatus (Lewis, 1888). The species are principally known from the subtropics of South America, with one in Central America. Lectotypes are designated for Kaszabister rubellus and Kaszabister ferrugineus, and a key is provided for all the species. Ants of the genus Solenopsis Westwood, mainly Solenopsis invicta Buren and Solenopsis saevissima (Smith), are documented as hosts of three of the four species.

Mentions: Kaszabister can be easily separated from other Neotropical Exosternini by its strongly carinate frontal stria (Fig. 3); epipleural, subhumeral, and dorsal elytral striae 1 apically carinate and convergent to posterolateral corner (Fig. 1B, 2A); and narrow, edentate meso- and metatibiae which bear only a few small spines (Figs 1B, 2A, 4). The narrowly depressed lateral pronotal margin is also rare in other genera (Figs 1A, 2B).
