TWO NEW BLENNIDUS (AGRAPHODERUS) SPECIES FROM PERU, WITH SYNONYMIC NOTES (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
AbstractTwo new Blennidus (Agraphoderus) species are described from the Andes of Peru: B. (A.) fitzcarraldi n. sp., from San Luis, Huachucocha lagoon, and from Punta Olimpica pass (Dept. of Ancash), and B. (A.) abditus n. sp., from the route Pampas-Huancavelica (Dept. of Huancavelica). A Neotype is designated for Feronia meticulosa Dejean, 1831 on historical material compared with the type by Chaudoir. The examination of the type material of Ogmopleura filicornis Straneo, 1993 and Ogmopleura bordoni Straneo, 1993 (both wrongly described from Peru based on a misinterpretation of the locality labels) compared with the Neotype of Feronia meticulosa Dejean, 1831 (described from Chile) revealed the following new synonymies: Ogmopleura filicornis Straneo, 1993 = Feronia meticulosa Dejean, 1831 syn. nov.; Ogmopleura bordoni Straneo, 1993 = Feronia meticulosa Dejean, 1831 syn. nov.
