n African Entomology - Revision of the Afrotropical mylabrine genus Marseul, 1870 (Coleoptera : Meloidae)

Volume 19, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1021-3589



The blister beetle genus Marseul, 1870, tribe Mylabrini, is revised. Its four species are redescribed and figured. Faunistic and ecological records of each species also are summarized. Results of a morphology-based cladistic analysis show (Gerstäcker, 1885) and (Fabricius, 1775) as most closely related. These two species and (Fairmaire, 1887) are placed in the nominate subgenus. The group occurs in eastern Africa and western Arabian Peninsula. The highly distinctive (Duvivier, 1890), endemic to central Africa, is placed in the resurrected subgenus Denierus Pic.
