Dirk Rohwedder

Résumé :

From 1999 to 2010 Cetoniinae are collected in Kakamega Forest, at Mount Kenya and adjacent areas in Kenya by hand and insecticidal tree fogging. The material could be assigned to 41 species that are reported and figured here. Three species are firstly recorded for Kenya. The material is deposited in the Zoological Research Museum Koenig in Bonn.

Synopsis of Scarab Beetle Tribe Valgini (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Cetoniinae) in the New World

Mary Liz Jameson & Katharine Anne Swoboda

Résumé :

Two genera and five species of valgine scarabs (Cetoniinae: Valgini) are found in the New World, including the introduced European species, Valgus hemipterus L..Valgus mexicanus Cazier is transferred to the genus Dasyvalgus Kolbe, and characters that support this transfer are discussed. Based on shared morphological characters, Valgus minutes Casey and V. serricollis Fitch are synonymized with V. canaliculatus (Olivier). Neotypes are designated for V. serricollis Fitch and Cetonia canaliculata Olivier. A key to the genera and species of New World Valgini is provided. Species are redescribed and information about geographic and phenology, biology, and larvae is provided.

Review of the genera Anelaphinis Kolbe, 1892 and Atrichelaphinis Kraatz, 1898 (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae, Cetoniinae)

Sébastien Rojkoff, Renzo Perissinotto

Résumé :

New material collected recently throughout the Afrotropical region has led to a major reassessment of taxa within the genera Anelaphinis Kolbe, 1892, Atrichelaphinis Kraatz, 1898 and other closely related genera. As a result, the name Megalleucosma Antoine, 1989 is here synonymised with Anelaphinis and a lectotype is designated for the type species, Cetonia dominula Harold, 1879. The genus Atrichelaphinis is redefined and a new subgenus, A. (Eugeaphinis), is proposed for Elaphinis simillima Ancey, 1883, Elaphinis vermiculata Fairmaire, 1894, Niphetophora rhodesiana Péringuey, 1907, Atrichelaphinis deplanata Moser, 1907 (with Anelaphinis kwangensis Burgeon, 1931 as junior synonym) and Anelaphinis sternalis Moser, 1914. Additionally, three new species and one new subspecies are recognised and described in this new subgenus: A.(Eugeaphinis) bomboesbergica sp. n.from South Africa; A.(Eugeaphinis) bjornstadi sp. n.from Tanzania; A.(Eugeaphinis) garnieri sp. n.from south–east Africa (Tanzania, Zimbabwe); and A.(Eugeaphinis) deplanata minettii ssp. n.from central Africa (Malawi, Mozambique, Congo-Kinshasa, Congo-Brazzaville, South Africa, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe). The genus Atrichelaphinisis compared to its closest relatives and two separate keys are proposed, one for Atrichelaphinis and one for the sub-Saharan genera exhibiting completely or partially fused parameres.
