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.

Legend: bc, bursa copulatrix; bl, base of laterotergite; bs, bursal sacculus; bgc1, base of gonocoxite 1; co, common oviduct; hs, helminthoid sclerite; sp, spermatheca; spg, spermathecal gland; spgd, spermathecal gland duct. Scale bar = 0.25 mm.

Mentions: Ovipositor (Figs 11A–11F) andfemale genital tract (Figs 12A, 12B and 13D). For naming the sclerites of the adephagan ovipositor and units of the female genital tract, we follow the system used by Liebherr and Will (1998; see figures therein). For the gonocoxites (gc1, gc2), the surfaces that are ventral in the infolded position are lateral when the ovipositor is extended; thus such surfaces are designated as lateral, and the other surfaces are designated accordingly.
