Canthyporus guttatus n.sp. (Fig. 1) This species, collected by my husband in S.W. Africa, differs very considerably from all the other members of the genus with which I am familiar. It is larger and both the elytral pattern and sculpture are distinctive. Size 4.0 X 1.8 mm. Broadly oval, shining, dark brown with head lighter, pronotum with a divided broad transverse yellow band and elytra each marked with five elongate and one, more rounded and pre-apical, yellow spots. Antennae and legs yellow.
