oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Three new Afrotropical dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeinae) in the genera, Kheper Janssens, Gymnopleurus Illiger and Onitis Fabricius, with notes on related species
Kheper zurstrasseni sp. nov. from South Africa, Gymnopleurus particolor sp. nov. from west Africa and Onitis autumnalis sp. nov. from south east Africa, are descriptionbed and their relationships discussed. K. clericus (Boheman) is redescriptionbed and its geographical distribution is illustrated on a map together with those of the closely-related K . zurstrasseni and K. bonellii (MacLeay). A key is provided to separate O. autumnalis from six closely-related species and the geographical distribution of all seven species is depicted by maps.
