Alpiodytes ravizzai new species from lombardy italy and observations on the systematics of the subtribe reicheiina coleoptera carabidae xiii contribution to the knowledge of coleoptera carabidae



Bollettino della Societa Entomologica Italiana 117(4-7): 76-82



There is described the second species of the genus Alpiodytes, hitherto regarded as monospecific, A. ravizzai n. sp. This species, of which only three specimens are known, has been found at Oltre il Colle (Serina Valley, Orobic Prealps, Lombardy). A. ravizzai can be distinguished from A. pennina (Bin.), only other species of the genus, through the more depressed body, the stronger denticolation of the elitral sides, the deeper punctuation of the striae and the different shape of the aedeagus, whose apex is almost straight and not strongly dilated and bent downwards. The taxonomy of the subtribe Reicheiina is then discussed, pointing out the lack of value of some of the features that were used to divide the subtribe in groups of genera. In particular, the genus Alpiodytes, because of the lack of the basal groove of the pronotum used to be considered as allied to Reicheia; according to the author, it is much more closely allied to Typhloreicheia.
