Tenebrionidae Hedyphanes Entomogonus taxonomy new taxa Turkey


Four species of Hedyphanes F.-W. are distributed in Anatolia: H. cordicollis Seidlitz, 1896 (Diyarbakır), H. khachikovi sp. nov. (southern part of Tunceli Province), H. lutosus Allard, 1877 sp. resurr. (type locality: “Asia min.”) and H. roznerorum (Nabozhenko, 2008) comb. nov. (from Pseudoprobaticus) (type locality: Pamukkale, Denizli Province). A new subgenus Granulophanes subgen. nov. is erected for H. lutosus (type species) and H. roznerorum. The new subgenus differs from other subgenera by granulated and setose elytra on disk, and granulated epipleura. Original combination is resurrected and lectotype is designated for Entomogonus elongatus Allard, 1876 comb. resurr. (from Hedyphanes). Key to species of Hedyphanes of Turkey is given.
