Abstract: New data on the occurrence of beetles of the family Bostrichidae on Socotra
Island are presented – altogether nine species have been recorded hitherto.
Besides faunistic data, the paper contains descriptions of two new subspecies:
Enneadesmus obtusidentatus obscurior Borowski subsp. nov. and Enneadesmus
forficula socotrensis Borowski subsp. nov. Both subspecies differ from
nominotypical forms in smaller size and distinctly shorter and less prominent
tubercles and denticles on elytral truncation.
Key words: Coleoptera, Bostrichidae, Enneadesmus, new subspecies, new records, Socotra, Yemen
