Consideraciones sobre eI genero Diastolinus (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Pedinini) en Cuba, con descripcion de dos nuevas especies.

Orlando H. Garrido, Esteban Gutierrez


Two new species of the genus Diastolinus are described for the island of Cuba, D alfaroi and D orientalis. After securing and comparing large series from the type localities of Diastolinus macamboensis and D. garciai, as well as from intermediate territories, we suggest, that these two taxa are indistinguishable; therefore we consider D. garciai as a junior synonym of D. macamboensis. In the private collection of the senior author are represented several new, undescribed populations.
