Bojková Jindřiška, Soldán TomášStoneflies (Plecoptera) of the Czech Republic: species checklist, distribution and protection statusActa Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 443-484
Abstract: A new checklist of Plecoptera of the Czech Republic was prepared based on the compilation of published faunistic data from 1420 sites (143 references) and unpublished data from 775 sites collected during the past 20 years. The history of Plecoptera research in the Czech Republic is briefly summarized. Altogether 95 species are recorded from the Czech Republic (85 species from Bohemia, 81 species from Moravia). In comparison with the previous checklist of Plecoptera, 13 species were added, 8 previously mentioned species were not confirmed, and some misidentifications are discussed. The distribution of species in eight districts based on main river basins, and species frequencies of occurrence and ranges of altitude and stream order of their localities are presented. Evaluation of data on species distribution from the past century enabled re-evaluation of threatened species. The new red list includes 5 regionally extinct, 6 critically endangered, 3 endangered, 10 vulnerable and 12 near threatened species. A special attention is paid to 8 species described from the present territory of the Czech Republic. Their type material, type localities and nomenclature are given and discussed. Nemoura monticola Raušer, 1965, syn. nov., is placed as a junior synonym of Nemoura fusca Kis, 1963.

A lectotype is designated for S. formosana. Illustrations of habitus and face are provided for E. formosana, E. koshunensis, E. satsumana, and E. versicolor, and of male genitalia for E. formosana.
Yamada Kazutaka, Yasunaga Tomohide, Artchawakom Taksin The genus Xylocoris found from plant debris in Thailand, with description of a new species of the subgenus Arrostelus (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Anthocoridae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 493-504
Abstract: Two species of the minute pirate bug genus Xylocoris Dufour, 1931 were found from plant debris on the ground in central Thailand: Xylocoris (Arrostelus) ampoli Yamada & Yasunaga sp. nov., showing wing dimorphism, and X. (Proxylocoris) cerealis Yamada & Yasunaga, 2006, previously known only from the rice mill factories. A finding of X. ampoli Yamada & Yasunaga sp. nov. represents the second discovery of the subgenus Arrostelus Kirkaldy, 1906 in the Oriental Region. Biology and zoogeography of Arrostelus are discussed and a key to the species occurring in the Oriental Region is also provided.
Stehlík Jaroslav L.Review and reclassification of the Old World genus Physopelta (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Largidae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 505-584
Abstract: The genus Physopelta Amyot & Serville, 1843 (Largidae: Physopeltinae: Physopeltini) is revised and reclassified. Four subgenera are recognized: Physopelta s. str. (3 species, Oriental Region), Neophysopelta Ahmad & Abbas, 1987, stat. nov. (19 species and 2 subspecies, Oriental and Australian Regions), Physopeltoides subgen. nov. (1 species, Afrotropical Region) and Afrophysopelta subgen. nov. (5 species, Afrotropical Region). The subgenera are keyed, and all included species are reviewed. Seven new species are described: Physopelta (Neophysopelta) dembickyi sp. nov. (Thailand, Vietnam), Physopelta (Neophysopelta) nigripes sp. nov. (Philippines), Physopelta (Neophysopelta) parvula sp. nov. (Vietnam), Physopelta (Neophysopelta) redeii sp. nov. (Thailand), Physopelta (Neophysopelta) sulawesiensis sp. nov. (Indonesia: Sulawesi), Physopelta (Physopeltoides) dentipes sp. nov. (Subsaharan Africa), and Physopelta (Afrophysopelta) flavofemoralis sp. nov. (Reunion). The species Physopelta (Neophysopelta) woodlarkiana (Montrouzier, 1855) is redescribed, its identity is fixed by designation of a neotype, and it is confirmed as a valid species. One new synonym is proposed: Neophysopelta neoslanbuschi Parveen & Ahmad, 1991, syn. nov. = Physopelta (Neophysopelta) slanbuschii (Fabricius, 1787). Lectotypes are designated for Pyrrhocoris analis Signoret, 1858 and Physopelta melanoptera Distant, 1904. Two new types of stridulatory organs in Physopelta are described. One species, Physopelta cicalis Walker, 1873, is excluded from Physopelta to be accommodated in a new genus later. A new tribe, Kmentiini trib. nov., is described for a new genus, Kmentia gen. nov., established for the Afrotropical Lygaeus festivus Fabricius, 1803, resulting in the new combination Kmentia festiva (Fabricius, 1803) comb. nov. The genus Wachsiella Schmidt, 1931, endemic to Sulawesi and known only in the female sex, is considered as Physopeltinae incertae sedis. Wupatkius Bliven, 1959 is confirmed as junior subjective synonym of Largus Hahn, 1831. All 23 valid genera of Largidae, the numbers of their included species and their distribution, are reviewed. The possible origin of the New World subfamily Larginae is discussed. The following new country records are provided for Physopelta (Physopelta) robusta St?l, 1863 (Malaysia), Ph. (Neophysopelta) australis Blöte, 1933 (West Australia), Ph. (N.) cincticollis St?l, 1863 (Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam), Ph. (N.) gutta gutta (Burmeister 1834) (Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam), Ph. (N.) indra Kirkaldy & Edwards, 1902 (Myanmar, Sri Lanka), Ph. (N.) quadriguttata Bergroth, 1894 (Vietnam), Ph. (N.) slanbuschii (Fabricius, 1787) (Bhutan, Vietnam), Ph. (Afrophysopelta) analis (Signoret, 1858) (Central African Republic), Ph. (A.) melanoptera (Angola, Chad, Comoros, Ethiopia, Gabon, Kenya, Malawi, S?o Tomé and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone), and Kmentia festiva (Angola, Gabon, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Niger, Sierra Leone, Tanzania).
Moravec Jiří, Duran Daniel P.Taxonomic and nomenclatorial revision within the Neotropical genera of the subtribe Odontochilina. 6. Odontocheila fraternum sp. nov., a new species sister to O. gilli (Coleoptera: CicindelidaeActa Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 585-599
Abstract: Two species of Odontocheila Laporte de Castelnau, 1834, both from Panama, are reviewed. Odontocheila fraternum sp. nov. is described as a new species from three disjunct localities, and a detailed redescription of the related species O. gilli Johnson, 2000 is given. Illustrations of the habitus, diagnostic characters and variability of these two species are presented in colour photographs.
Fery Hans, Hájek JiříHydroporus toubkal sp. nov. from the High Atlas, Morocco, a new member of the H. longulus group (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 601-607
Abstract: Hydroporus toubkal sp. nov. of the H. longulus species group is described from the High Atlas, Morocco. The new species is similar to H. longulus Mulsant & Rey, 1861, H. nevadensis Sharp, 1882 and H. jacobsoni Zaitzev, 1927. From these three species, H. toubkal sp. nov. can be distinguished with certainty only by the shape of the median lobe of aedeagus. The habitus and the male and female genitalia of the new species are illustrated. Figures of the aedeagi of H. jacobsoni, H. longulus and H. nevadensis are provided for comparison.
Jia Fenglong, Short Andrew E. Z.Enochrus algarum sp. nov., a new hygropetric water scavenger beetle from China (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Enochrinae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 609-614
Abstract: Enochrus algarum sp. nov. is described from Fujian Province in southern China. Its unusual combination of weakly impressed elytral striae, an entire fifth abdominal ventrite, and short maxillary palps make subgeneric placement difficult, and thus we do not assign it to any subgenus and place it as Enochrus incertae sedis for the time being. All specimens were collected on wet rock surfaces with dense algae or in decaying plants beside wet rock. It is the first species of the genus from East Asia known to occur in hygropetric habitats.
Deler-Hernández Albert, Cala-Riquelme Franklyn, Fikáček MartinDescription of a new species of Phaenonotum from eastern Cuba (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Sphaeridiinae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 615-622
Abstract: A new species of the genus Phaenonotum Sharp, 1882, P. delgadoi sp. nov., is described from the Nipe-Sagua-Baracoa mountain range in eastern Cuba. The new species is diagnosed from other species of the genus, and compared in detail with P. exstriatum (Say, 1835) and P. minor Smetana, 1978. All specimen of the new species were collected by sifting forest leaf litter far from any known water source and the species is therefore likely terrestrial.
Lackner TomášElevation of Pilisaprinus to full generic status with notes on the evolution of termitoxeny in the Saprininae (Coleoptera: Histeridae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 623-632
Abstract: Pilisaprinus Kanaar, 1996, a monospecific Afrotropical termitoxenous subgenus of the genus Saprinus Erichson, 1834 is recognized as a valid genus based on the results of recent phylogenetic analysis. Pilisaprinus is redefined using a combination of plesiomorphic and apomorphic morphological characters, and its type species, Saprinus (Pilisaprinus) verschureni Thérond, 1959 is re-described, with male genitalia, mouthparts and sensory organs illustrated and complemented with SEM micrographs. Notes on the evolution of termitoxeny in the Saprininae subfamily are provided.
Král David, Šípek PetrAphodiinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) of the Goa, Maharashtra and Rajasthan (India) with description of Aphodius (Gilletianus) rajawatorum sp. nov.Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 633-648
Abstract: Altogether 29 species of aphodiine tribes Aphodiini (24 species) and Psammodiini (5 species) were recorded in the states of Goa, Maharashtra and Rajasthan (India) during a faunistic research in 2002–2005. Findings of Aphodius (Pharaphodius) calo Balthasar, 1971 and A. (P.) redargutus Balthasar, 1971 represent new country records for India. Species A. (Megatelus) contractus Klug, 1845 and Pararhyssemus coluber (Mayet, 1887) are new for the whole Indo-Pakistani subcontinent. Aphodius (Gilletianus) rajawatorum sp. nov. from Rajasthan is described and illustrated. The new species is close to A. (G.) fukiensis Balthasar, 1952, A. (G.) segmentaroides A. Schmidt, 1909 and A. (G.) therondi Balthasar, 1963 exhibiting distinctly narrow, almost parallel-sided protibia.
Sehnal RichardBunbunius quadrihamis sp. nov. from Sichuan province, China (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 649-655
Abstract: Bunbunius quadrihamis sp. nov. from Sichuan province in China is described, figured, and an updated key to species of Bunbunius Nomura, 1970 is presented. Bunbunius quadrihamis sp. nov. is closely related to B. pseudoopacipennis Keith, 2008 and B. prunellus (Arrow, 1946), from which it differs mainly in the shape of external male genitalia. New records for the species Bunbunius sinensis Keith, 2005 (China: Gansu, Shaanxi) are given.
Bílý Svatopluk,  Brûlé StéphaneA study on the genus Agrilaxia of French Guiana (Coleoptera: Buprestidae: Anthaxiini)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 657-686
Abstract: The genus Agrilaxia Kerremans, 1903 of French Guiana is revised and 16 species are recorded.

Abstract: Two new species of the tribe Stenosini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), Tetranillus nyingchiensis sp. nov. and Pseudethas (Stenillus) cordiformis sp. nov., are described. One species, Indochillus convexigena Ren & Shi, 2006, is transferred to the genus Pseudethas Fairmaire, 1896 as Pseudethas convexigenus (Ren & Shi, 2006), comb. nov.
Kamiński Marcin JanA new genus and species of the Afrotropical Platynotina from Tanzania (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Pedinini)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 703-714
Abstract: Paraselinus iwani, a new genus and species of the subtribe Platynotina (Tenebrionidae: Tenebrioninae: Pedinini) is described from the East African mangroves of Tanzania. The prothoracic skeletal structure of this new taxon is illustrated using X-ray microtomography (microCT). Due to the total wing loss, transverse antennomeres 7–11 and specific prothoracic structure (lack of basal depressions on pronotal disc) Paraselinus gen. nov. is similar to Aberlencus Iwan, 2002, Angolositus Koch, 1955, Lechius Iwan, 1995, Pseudoselinus Iwan, 2002 and Upembarus Koch, 1956. A brief discussion on the generic relationships within the Central African Platynotina is included. An identifi cation key to the Paraselinus gen. nov. and related genera is provided.
Bězděk JanRevision of the genus Hesperopenna (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae). I. Generic redescription, definition of species groups and taxonomy of H. medvedevi species groupActa Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 715-746

Marino Pablo I., Cazorla Carla G., Ronderos María M.Study of the immature stages of two species of the biting midge genus Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 777-792
Abstract: Pupa of Culicoides insignis Lutz, 1913, and larva and pupa of Culicoides bambusicola Lutz, 1913 are fully described. They are illustrated and photographed using binocular microscope, phase-contrast stereoscope at oil immersion and scanning electronic microscopy, from material collected in Corrientes and Misiones provinces, Argentina. Palatum, maxilla and hypopharynx of the fourth instar larva of C. bambusicola as well as the cephalothoracic sensilla and sensillar pattern of the first and fourth abdominal segment of the pupa are described for both species. The immatures of C. bambusicola are compared with Culicoides debilipalpis Lutz, 1913. Pupa of C. insignis is compared with the following related congeners: C. maruim Lutz, 1913, C. charruus Spinelli & Martinez, 1992, and C. annetae Spinelli & Borkent, 2004.
Roháček JindřichReliquantha variipes gen. & sp. nov., a peculiar new taxon of Anthomyzidae (Diptera) from Great Britain with uncertain relationshipsActa Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 53(2): 793-814
Abstract: A new genus Reliquantha is established for R. variipes sp. nov., an enigmatic species of Anthomyzidae discovered in Great Britain (Wales, England). The new genus and species is distinguished by a very peculiar combination of plesiomorphic and apomorphic characters including several unique structures previously unknown in Anthomyzidae. Although its relationships has not been resolved definitely, it is suggested by certain similarities to fossil Lacrimyza Roháček, 2013 from Baltic amber that it could be a remnant of an otherwise extinct Tertiary clade of the subfamily Anthomyzinae. The uniquely hirsute medandrium (= subepandrial sclerite) found in R. variipes sp. nov. is considered to be further evidence supporting the hypothesis that this structure is homologous with (fused) basal parts of the gonopods (= gonocoxites, basistyli).
