Western Hemisphere Zuphiini: descriptions of Coarazuphium whiteheadi, new species, and Zuphioides, new genus, and classification of the genera (Coleoptera, Carabidae).

Ball GE, Shpeley D - Zookeys (2013)

Bottom Line: The genus Coarazuphium includes six troglobitic species from Brazilian caves, and one probably hypogaeic (troglophilic) species from the mountains of Oaxaca, in Mexico (Coarazuphium whiteheadi, sp. n., type locality, ridge top, in western Oaxaca, Mexico, at 2164 m, 35 km north of San Pedro Juchatengo, 16.462N, 97.010W).The epigaeic genus Zuphioides includes 23 species, with its geographical range extended from Neotropical temperate Argentina in southern South America, northward through the tropics to north temperate southeastern Canada, in the Nearctic Region.Keys are provided to the species of Coarazuphium and to thegenera of Western Hemisphere Zuphiini.

ABSTRACT
Based on small samples (exemplars) analyzed with morphological methods, including detailed descriptions and illustrations, this study treats primarily the Zuphium genus-group in the Western Hemisphere, which comprises two precinctive genera: Coarazuphium Gnaspini, Vanin & Godoy, 1998 (type species Parazuphium tessai Godoy & Vanin, 1990) and Zuphioides gen. n. (type species Zuphium mexicanum Chaudoir, 1863). The genus Coarazuphium includes six troglobitic species from Brazilian caves, and one probably hypogaeic (troglophilic) species from the mountains of Oaxaca, in Mexico (Coarazuphium whiteheadi, sp. n., type locality, ridge top, in western Oaxaca, Mexico, at 2164 m, 35 km north of San Pedro Juchatengo, 16.462N, 97.010W). The epigaeic genus Zuphioides includes 23 species, with its geographical range extended from Neotropical temperate Argentina in southern South America, northward through the tropics to north temperate southeastern Canada, in the Nearctic Region. Keys are provided to the species of Coarazuphium and to thegenera of Western Hemisphere Zuphiini.

Figure 9: A SEM micrograph of fore tarsus of Zuphioides mexicanum (Chaudoir). Legend: as, articulo-seta; ts, trichoid seta. Scale bar = 100 µm. B Line drawing of prothorax and base of head, ventral aspect, of Coarazuphium whiteheadi, new species. Only medial pair of prominent prosternal setae illustrated, vestiture omitted. Scale bar = 1 mm.

Mentions: Male tarsal vestiture. Two types of adhesive vestiture on the ventral surface of the fore tarsi are exhibited by males of the Zuphium genus-group: articulo-setae (Fig. 9A, as) and biseriate squamo-setae (See Stork 1980, for a thorough discussion of this topic).
