Redescription and notes on the New Zealand ladybird species Hoangus venustus (Pascoe, 1875) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
Karol Szawaryn , Richard A.B. Leschen
AbstractA detailed morphological re-description of the New Zealand endemic monotypic genus Hoangus Ukrainsky, 2006 is given, along with illustrations of genitalia and key diagnostic characters. The genus is transferred from Cranophorini to Coccidulini based on several morphological characters: its more or less parallel-sided terminal labial palpomere, maxillae with a row of sclerotized spines on the lacinia, unmodified scape, and elongated mesoventrite, rendering the former tribe monotypic. Limited natural history data indicates that Hoangus venustus (Pascoe) maybe a specialist predator on stenorrhynchan hemipterans associated with flax.
