Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 52(supplementum 2): 213-218, 2012
Abstract: Selasia socotrana sp. nov. is described from Socotra and compared with Selasia
homhilia Geisthardt, 2003. Selasia homhilia is shown to differ in morphology of
mandibles and aedeagus from all hitherto known representatives of Drilini. The
diagnostic characters of both investigated species are figured and their
relationships are briefly discussed.
