oa Annals of the Transvaal Museum - A new subtribe for the monotypic Southern African genus Bulis Laporte and Gory (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)

Volume 36, Issue 11
  • ISSN : 0041-1752



A new subtribe, Bulisina, is described for the monotypic Southern African buprestid genus Bulis Laporte and Gory in order to better differentiate it within the evolving higher classification of the family. The new subtribe is compared with the Acherusina (Neotropical) and Astraeusina (Australasian), both described by Cobos, compartments where Bulis has been placed in earlier classifications. A cladistic analysis supports this new subtribe and its placement within the Tyndarini Cobos (sensu HolyÅ?ski).
