Differential diagnosis. The new species differs

monochrome black elytra.

Mimicry. D. nigra sp. n. mimics the weevil
Pachyrrhynchus sp. and Metapocyrtus sp.

Etymology. This species is named after my
colleague and friend, the Polish carabidologist
Stanislaw Huruk (Jan Kochanowski University,
Kielce, Poland) in appreci-ation of cooperation.
