Description. Body black, with light luster. Surface
very convex, with greenish, iridescent spots.
Body length: 13.1 – 13.8 mm, largest width: 5.5 –
Head almost square, parallel-sided, with bilobate
eyes. Head between eyes and protrudet antennal
bases with longitudinal band of greenish scales
and thin straight median line. Head on front of
greenish band shiny, without white pubescence.
Cheeks beneath eyes without spot of greenish
scales, without sparse punctures near eyes and
with very fine transverse microsculpture. Labrum
pubescent and punctate. Head black, finely
punctate, glossy, with luster. In frontal part
weaklyconvex, with very fine transverse
microsculpture. Two basal antennomeres black
with light purple luster and pubescence, third
antennomere brown basally, fourth antennomere
testaceous basally, with very fine white
pubescence, remaining antennomeres
testaceous and tomentose. Pronotum very
convex, shiny, with sparse coarse punctuation
in lateral parts, with fine transverse
microsculpture. Pronotum in frontal part with
transverse stripe of greenish scales, widened
laterally. Disc of pronotum in centrum without
pubescence, shiny. Scutellum apically rounded,
shiny and tomentose. Elytra very convex, black,
shiny, with purple or greenish metallic luster, with
greenish spots of scales. Basal yellow circle small,
round, not elongated. Second spot transverse,
narrow. Apical spot slightly triangular, often
interrupted basally, with enlarged corners. Lateral
sides of elytra with slightly protruding shoulder
bumps. Lateral sides of each elytron behind
shoulders without raised nodules and with wide
impressions under transverse band. Width of
elytra at shoulders: 4.7 – 5.0 mm. Largest width
of elytron behind middle: 5.5 – 6.1 mm. Elytra
with sparse and coarse punctures and
pubescence laterally, in the front of transverse
band smoothly. Meso-, metaepimera and sternites
spotted laterally, covered with greenish scales.
Femora without small yellow spot at apex, more
or less tomentose. Dorsal surface of tarsomeres
covered by grey, tomentum. Tibia and tarsi in
apical part covered by numerous setae.
Aedeagus (Fig. 7C).
Differential diagnosis. The new species similar
to D. frosti Schultze, 1923 (Fig. 7D), D. confluens
Kriesche, 1928 (Fig. 7E), D. viridisignata
Breuning, 1947 (Fig. 7F) and D. siargaoensis
Schultze, 1919 (Fig. 9A, C) by some features of
body surface shape, but differs from these
species by shape of spots on elytra and
pronotum. First transverse band by D.
serapavginae sp. n. is more narrower as by D.
huruki sp. n. and D. frosti. Apical spot by by D.
serapavginae sp. n. is different as by all other
species: slightly triangular, often interrupted
basally, with enlarged corners. By D. huruki sp.
n. apical spot is triangular, completely covered
with scales, by D. siargaoensis, D. siargaoensis,
D. frosti and D. confluens apical spot content
from three different spots – one triangular and
two rounded or one V – shaped and one
transverse stripes. New species differs from other
species also with shape of pronotum and some
Remark. The holotype of this species was
infected by Nematoda. Withdrawn of Nematoda
are glued on paper and added to the holotype
Etymology. This species is named after my
colleague and friend, the Turkish
coleopterologist Sakine Serap Avgin
(Kahramanmaraş Sütçü İmam Üniversitesi,
Kahramanmaraş, Turkey) in appreci-ation of
