The species of Diaclina Jacquelin du Val, 1861 (Tenebrioninae: Alphitobiini) from the Sub-Saharan Africa are revised. Following new species are proposed: Diaclina ashantica sp. nov. (Ghana), D. grandis sp. nov. (Congo), D. muehlei sp. nov. (Rwanda). Diaclina ovalis Gebien, 1921 is revalidated. Following new synonyms are introduced: Diaclina gracilis (Fahraeus, 1870) = Diaclina depressa Ardoin, 1963 syn. nov. , Diaclina elliptica Ardoin, 1969 syn. nov. ; Diaclina ovalis Gebien, 1921 = Diaclina de...

Based on the newly established synonymy of the type species (i.e., Menederopsis constrictus Koch, 1954 = Archinamaqua lyleae Schawaller, 2012 syn. nov.) the genus-group name Archinamaqua Schawaller, 2012 (Pimeliinae: Tentyriini) is interpreted as a junior synonym of Menederopsis Koch, 1954 (Tenebrioninae: Eurynotina). This newly interpreted taxon has a restricted distributional area on sand dunes in Namaqualand, western South Africa.

Abstract A new species of Philhammus Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Cnemeplatiini) is described from Djibouti, Horn of Africa, and compared to other known species of the genus. Members of this species were collected at ultraviolet lights in low, thorny, desert scrub vegetation and are presumed to inhabit loose, sandy soils. A key to the African and Arabian species of Philhammus and a review of literature are provided.

A second species of the genus Zoutpansbergia Koch, 1956 (Z. schoemani sp. nov.) is described from the Limpopo Province in South Africa. Morphology of female terminalia of the studied genus is described for the first time. Systematic position of Zoutpansbergia within the subtribe Melambiina is briefly discussed. Lectotype for Zoutpansbergia serricostata Koch, 1956 is designated, in order to fix the taxonomic status of this species.

Two new species of the genus Laena Dejean, 1821 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Lagriinae) are described from Hong Kong: Laena hongkongica sp. n. and Laena walkeri sp. n. These constitute the first record of the genus from Hong Kong, as a species previously described from nearby area Laena ovipennis Schuster, 1926, in fact originated from Zhejiang province nearby Shanghai. Both species from Hong Kong possess a wide variation in body length, which is quite unusual for this genus.

The genus Lyphia Mulsant & Rey, 1859 (Tenebrionidae: Triboliini Gistel, 1848) with the type species Lyphia ficicola Mulsant & Rey, 1859 (junior synonym of Bius tetraphylla Fairmaire, 1856) is widespread in the Palaearctic, Oriental and Papuan-Pacific Regions, as well as in Africa. The present study treats all species known from the Oriental Region including the Himalayas and China, Taiwan, and from all Sunda Islands including Lombok and Sulawesi. Additional available species from Papuan and Paci...

The species of the African genus Gargilius Fairmaire, 1891 (Tenebrionidae: Diaperinae) are revised. Two new species are described: G. apicalis sp. nov. (Democratic Republic of the Congo) and G. gebieni sp. nov. (Cameroon, Gabon, Ghana). The following species are placed in synonymy: G. bicornutus Fairmaire, 1891 (= G. incornutus Pic, 1916 syn. nov., = G. rectangularis Gebien, 1921 syn. nov.), G. rufitarsis Fairmaire, 1894 (= G. affinis Gebien, 1921 syn. nov., = Gargilius mocquerysi Pic, 1916 syn....

The Palaearctic species of the genus Metaclisa Jacquelin du Val, 1861 are revised. M. andoi sp. nov. is described from Yunnan Province, China. Androsus cyanescens Pic, 1934 syn. nov. is proposed as a synonym of Metaclisa atrocyanea (Lewis, 1891). An identification key for the 8 Palaearctic species is compiled. The genus has a transpalaearctic distribution with a huge disjunction: six species occur in the eastern part, and only two species in the western Palaearctic Region. The species have an ar...

Microcenoscelis n. gen. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Ulomini) caeca n. sp. is described from Zimbabwe, a small and completely blind species. A second known species, however with completely developed eyes, and originally described as Uloma minuscula Ardoin, 1969, was also placed in the new genus. Microcenoscelis n. gen. seems to be mostly related to the genera Cenoscelis Wollaston, 1867, and Cneocnemis Gebien, 1914.
