Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 48(2): 361-365, 2008
Abstract: A new species of the genus Oncocephalus Klug, 1830, O. stysi sp. nov., is
described from Israel. The new species is very similar and related to O.
aspericollis Reuter, 1882, and O. hierosolymensis Moulet, 2001. A new spe-
cies-group, the aspericollis-group, is defined within Oncocephalus for these
three species; their diagnostic characters are discussed and a key is presented
for their identification.
Key words: Reduviidae, Stenopodainae, Oncocephalus, aspericollis-group, new species, Israel
