oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Five new species of Canthyporus (Col. Dytiscidae) from South Africa
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.
