A NEW ANTHAXIA FROM THE AEOLIAN ISLANDS (COLEOPTERA, BUPRESTIDAE)
AbstractAnthaxia (Haplanthaxia) flaviae n. sp. from the Aeolian Islands (Italy, Sicily) belonging to the A. (H.) olympica Kiesenwetter, 1880 species-group is described, illustrated and compared with A. (H.) scutellaris (Gené, 1839), the most closely related species. From this latter, the new species differs mainly for size and body shape, colour pattern of elytrae, shape of antennomera, margin of anterior tibiae and shape of aedeagus. Some zoogeographical considerations concerning the insular distribution of this endemic taxon are briefly discussed.
