Description
Description of holotype. Habitus of holotype as in Fig. 7. Body narrow, longitudinal, matt, punctuate. Body length 6.1 mm, widest in two thirds elytral length (1.6 mm), maximum humeral width 1.5 mm, 3.81 times longer than wide.
Head short, dark with short light pubescence, densely punctuate, anterior part and sides with long setae. Eyes large, longitudinal, finely excised. Antennae filiform, black, antennomeres 3-7 slightly dilated anteriorly, finely punctuate, antennomeres 3-6 with distinct tooth in apex from inner side; antennomere 1 distinctly wider.
Antennae reaching two thirds elytral length. Ratios of relative lengths of antennomeres 1-11 equal to: 0.77 : 0.37 : 1.0 : 0.75 : 0.82 : 0.70 : 0.66 : 0.51 : 0.53 : 0.48 : 0.59.
Pronotum almost symmetric; 1.35 times longer than wide at the base and 1.09 times longer than wide in the widest point (middle of the pronotum); black, coarsely punctuate with very short greyish pubescence and sparse very long black setae; posterior half of lateral margins and posterior margin with white tomentose (part on antescutellar area without white tomentum). Anterior and posterior margins almost straight, very slightly rounded. Lateral margins rounded in the middle, distinctly narrowing in direction of base.
Scutellum triangular with dense white tomentum.
Elytra 4.0 mm long and 1.6 mm wide. Elytra black, finely punctuate, with short greyish pubescence and a few long black setae. In basal half white horizontal band of tomentum. Second white tomented band transverse with oblique part near suture. White tomentum near suture is distinct from level of the second band up to base. Apical sixth with white and near sides with a golden-yellow tomentum. Apical part of elytra without spines, rounded. Epipleura dark, relatively broad, parallel.
Ventral side of body black, covered with parts of dense white pubescence including lateral margins of abdominal ventrites.
Legs thin with thickened femora; black. Tibia almost straight. Metatarsomere 1 only 1.6 times longer than metatarsomeres 2 and 3 together.
Male. Unknown.
Differential diagnosis. The most similar species from the genus Oligoenoplus Chevrolat, 1863 is Oligoenoplus fulgidipennis Holzschuh, 2011. Oligoenoplus marketae sp. nov. clearly differs from O. fulgidipennis mainly with only one interrupted white band in the basal part of the pronotum and with different shapes and locations of the white bands on the elytra.
Etymology. Dedicated to my wife Markéta.
Distribution. Indonesia (Sumatra).
