Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 50(2): 577-594, 2010
Abstract: A new monotypic genus, Yunakovius gen. nov., is described, based on Y.
orientalis sp. nov. from China, Mongolia and Siberia. The genus Omo iotus Sharp,
1896 is recognized as a junior synonym of Asphalmus Sharp, 1896, which
currently contains three species: Asphalmus japonicus Sharp, 1896, A. ovatus
(Sharp, 1896), comb. nov., and A. sharpi sp. nov. (China). A lectotype is
designated for Omoiotus ovatus Sharp, 1896. A key to Asphalmus species is
given, the three species included are redescribed and illustrated, including
male and female genitalia.
