Abstract: A new species of Stenosini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Pimeliinae), Schizaraeus
fouquei sp. nov. is described from southern Andes of Peru: Apurímac and Cusco
regions. Prior to this study, Schizaraeus Kulzer, 1955 was monotypic with one
species, S. acuticosta Kulzer, 1955 from Catamarca Province in Argentina. We
present habitus photographs of both species, scanning electron micrographs of
external morphology of the new species, a distribution map, and a comparison of
the characters of both species of the genus.
