A taxonomic review of Korean species of the AthetaThomsonsubgenusMicrodota Mulsant & Rey, with descriptions of two new species (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Aleocharinae).

Lee SG, Ahn KJ - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: Two other species [Atheta (Microdota) kobensis Cameron and Atheta (Microdota) scrobicollis (Kraatz)] previously recorded in North Korea had been identified incorrectly.A key, descriptions, habitus photographs and illustrations of the diagnostic features are provided.Species distributions and diversity in East Asia are discussed.

ABSTRACT
A taxonomic review of the AthetaThomsonsubgenusMicrodota Mulsant & Rey in Korea is presented. The subgenus is represented in Korea by 15 species including two new species, Atheta (Microdota) jangtaesanensis Lee & Ahn, sp. n. and Atheta (Microdota) pasniki Lee & Ahn, sp. n. Four species [Atheta (Microdota) kawachiensis Cameron, Atheta (Microdota) muris Sawada, Atheta (Microdota) spiniventris Bernhauer, and Atheta (Microdota) spinula (Sawada)] are new to the Korean Peninsula and two [Atheta (Microdota) formicetorum Bernhauer and Atheta (Microdota) subcrenulata Bernhauer] to South Korea. Two other species [Atheta (Microdota) kobensis Cameron and Atheta (Microdota) scrobicollis (Kraatz)] previously recorded in North Korea had been identified incorrectly. A key, descriptions, habitus photographs and illustrations of the diagnostic features are provided. Species distributions and diversity in East Asia are discussed.

Mentions: Members of Microdota can be distinguished from other subgenera of Atheta by combination of the following characters: body small, parallel-sided; antennomere 2 distinctly longer than 3, 5–10 transverse; median region of prementum very narrow, without pseudopore; pronotum transverse, more than 1.2 times as wide as long, with midline of pubescence directed anteriorly in most; hypomera fully visible in lateral aspect; tarsal formula 4-5-5; flabellum reduced; abdominal tergites II–III without anterior macroseta in most, III–VI impressed in basal region, VI about as long as VII; internal sac of median lobe of aedeagus well developed (Fenyes 1920, Benick and Lohse 1974, Yosii and Sawada 1976, Seevers 1978).
