Description
Doliops tamutisi sp. n.
(Fig. 8A, B, C)

Type material. Holotype: Male. Philippines:
Mindanao, Bukidnon, Intavas, 04.2014, local
collector leg.

Paratypes: 2 Females. Philippines: Mindanao,
Bukidnon, Cabanglasan, 06.2014, local collector
leg.

Description. Body black, with light luster. Elytra
covered by pale iridescent scales, except for
narrow transverse band along basis of elytra and
before middle, and after it with longitudional band
along suture. Body length: 12.8 – 13.0 mm, largest
width: 5.2 – 5.6 mm.
Head almost square, parallel-sided, with bilobate
eyes. Part of head between eyes and protrudet
antennal bases with longitudinal band of pale,
iridescent scales and thin, straight median line
without scales. Cheeks beneath eyes with wide
transverse spot of pale scales and with sparse
very fine punctuation. Labrum pubescent and
punctate, with golden or greenish luster. Head
black, glossy, with golden luster; convex in the
frontal part, with very fine microsculpture and
with fine tomentum. Two basal an-tennomeres
black with metallic luster and pubescence, third
antennomere testaceous basally, black apically
and with widened apex, fourth antennomere
testaceous, with very fine white pubescence,
remaining antennomeres testaceous and
tomentose. Pronotum convex, very shiny, with
delicate, transverse microsculpture and sparse
punctuation, with large spots of longitudinal and
transverse bands dorsally. Scutellum rounded,
shiny and tomentose. Elytra finely punctate,
convex, black, shiny, with greenish metallic luster
and covered with pale, iridescent scales, except
for narrow transverse band along basis of elytra
and before middle, and after it with longitudional
band along suture. Each elytron with slightly
protruding shoulder bumps on the sideand
behind shoulders on both sides with very weakly
raised nodules and small wide impressions. Width
of elytra at level of shoulders: 4.4 – 4.6 mm.
Largest width of elytra is behind the middle: 5.2
– 5.6 mm. Meso-, metaepimera and sternites
spotted laterally, covered by pale scales. Femora
black, with greenish metallic luster and with small
pale spot at apex, more or less tomentose. Dorsal
surface of tarsomeres covered by grey, iridescent
tomentum. Tibia and tarsi covered by numerous
setae in apical part.

Aedeagus (Fig. 8C).

Differential diagnosis. The new species by body
surface features similar with Doliops edithae
Doliops tamutisi sp. n.
(Fig. 8A, B, C)

Aedeagus (Fig. 8C).

Differential diagnosis. The new species by body
surface features similar with Doliops edithae
Vives, 2009 (Fig. 10E) and D. cuellari Vives, 2012
(Fig. 8D, E). Pronotum of D. tamutisi sp. n. with
large spots of longitudinal and transverse bands
dorsally, but pronotum of D.edithae and D.
cuellari different: emarginated D. edithae and
spotted with rounded spots D. cuellari.

Etymology. This species is named after my
colleague and friend, Lithuanian coleopterologist
Vytautas Tamutis (Kaunas, Lithuania) in appreciation
of cooperation.
