oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new species of the genus Brachagenius Kraatz (=Xiphoscelidus Peringuey syn. nov.) with notes on the synonymy of Elpidus hopei (Burmeister) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Trichiinae)
Brachagenius oculatus sp. nov. is descriptionbed and compared in a key to other members of the genus. Xiphoscelidus Peringuey is synonymized with Brachagenius, resulting in Brackagenius lugubris (Peringuey) comb.nov. Brackagenius lineatipennis Kraatz, formerly considered as a synonym of B. pictipennis Kraatz, is a synonym of Elpidus hopei (Burmeister). Both genera are briefly diagnosed and each species is figured.
