Abstract: Renefouqueosis peruviensis gen. et sp. nov., a new tenebrionid genus and species
of the tribe Stenosini (subtribe Stenosina) is described from the arid mountains
of Northern Peru. Including the new genus Renefouqueosis gen. nov., the tribe
Stenosini now includes 40 valid genera of which nine are from the New World.
The genera are placed in six subtribes (two worldwide, two New World and two Old
World). Type species and subtribal assignment for each genus is presented. Notes
on the placement of the genera Anchomma LeConte, 1858 and Fitzsimonsium Koch,
1962 are given. The proper placement of these genera is uncertain. Because of
numerous morphological similarities to the Stenosini, we have decided to place
these in a key to the world genera of Stenosini, which we provide.
