Lackner T, Tishechkin AK - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: A new species of the genus Eremosaprinus Ross, 1939, E. warneri, is described from southeastern Arizona, USA, and incorporated into the identification key for the genus.Description of the new species is supplemented with SEM micrographs and drawings of sensory structures of the antenna and male genitalia.New distribution data on four species, E. distinctus Lundgren, 1992, E. hubbardi (Wenzel, 1939), E. minimus Tishechkin & Lackner, 2012, and E. unguiculatus (Ross, 1939), are also provided.

ABSTRACT
A new species of the genus Eremosaprinus Ross, 1939, E. warneri, is described from southeastern Arizona, USA, and incorporated into the identification key for the genus. Description of the new species is supplemented with SEM micrographs and drawings of sensory structures of the antenna and male genitalia. New distribution data on four species, E. distinctus Lundgren, 1992, E. hubbardi (Wenzel, 1939), E. minimus Tishechkin & Lackner, 2012, and E. unguiculatus (Ross, 1939), are also provided.

Figure 1: 1Eremosaprinus warneri sp. n., habitus, dorsal view. 2 ditto, ventral view 3 ditto, lateral view 4Eremosaprinus warneri sp. n., male, metaventrite + first abdominal ventrite 5Eremosaprinus warneri sp. n., head, frontal view.

Mentions: The original key needs to be edited beginning with couplet 6. After studying a long series of the new species and revisiting the characters of Eremosaprinus distinctus Lundgren, 1992, Eremosaprinus minutus Tishechkin & Lackner, 2012, Eremosaprinus rossi Tishechkin & Lackner, 2012 and Eremosaprinus verityi Tishechkin & Lackner, 2012, we decided to drop from this couplet the mention of the dorsal microsculpture characters. The new species is very similar to Eremosaprinus rossi in overall appearance and has distinct background microsculpture, while in the only known Eremosaprinus rossi specimen it is almost nonexistent. We suspect, however, that the discovery of more Eremosaprinus rossi specimens might prove this species also possesses relatively distinct background microsculpture (as the new species does), the holotype appearing to be a somewhat worn specimen. So, to avoid possible confusion, we delete the mention of microsculpture characters from the key and use only unambiguous male characters. However, diagnosis of the so far unknown females of Eremosaprinus rossi might prove to be problematic without a reliable male association.
