Full Text PDF

Abstract:

New species representing a new genus of Bostrichidae Trogoxylyctus australiensis gen. nov., sp. nov. is desribed from Australia. In the general outlook it resembles the African genus Lycthoplites Lesne of the tribe Lyctini, but morphological similarity is in this case evidently a result of convergence. A key to the identification of know Australian representatives of Trogloxylini is given.
