Abstract: Acetropis stysi sp. nov. is described from Sierra de Gredos of Ávila province
in Central Spain. The new species is most similar to A. longirostris Puton,
1875, but in some respects is also similar to A. carinata (Herrich-Schaeffer,
1841). Males are macropterous, females macropterous and submacropterous. The new
species is clearly distinguished from A. longirostris and A. carinata by the
structure of the pygopore and from A. carinata and all other Acetropis species
by the shape and partly by the numbers of vesical spiculae. It differs from the
remnant species, A. gimmerthalii (Flor, 1860), A. sinuata Wagner, 1951, and A.
atropis Reuter, 1895, by many characters.
