A NEW TRICHOTAENIA SPECIES FROM TANZANIA (COLEOPTERA, CICINDELIDAE)
AbstractTrichotaenia kudrnai n. sp., is described from Mpanda, Rukwa, Tanzania. By having a partially hairy labrum, it is obviously a member of group 2 (species of group 1 have a glabrous labrum instead), and in particular it is apparently closely allied to T. rivalieri Basilewsky, 1958, however differing from it because of several important morphological characters, such as the different patterns of elytral and pronotal pubescence, the shorter pronotum with more apparent notopleural sutures and the even stronger elytral sculpture.
