Missing geographic link: minute lady beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae: Microweiseinae) from Mount Wilhelm, New Guinea

Karol Szawaryn

Abstract

Lady beetle fauna of the New Guinea has been studied by several entomologists but there are still many coccinellid groups that have not been recorded from the island yet. Newly collected materials from “Our Planet Reviewed – Papua New Guinea” expedition revealed three new species belonging to the subfamily Microweiseinae, till now unknown from New Guinea. Scymnomorphus bimaculatus sp. nov., S. papuensis sp. nov., and S. kausi sp. nov. are described, and key characters are illustrated. A key to Scymnomorphus species of the Australasian Region is provided.
