Abstract

In this monograph on the Indochinese species of Tetraserica Ahrens, 2004 all species distributed in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and mainland Malaysia are covered as well as those of the Indian province Mizoram. From this revision, the following new combinations result: Tetraserica gressitti (Frey, 1972), comb. n., T. laotica (Frey, 1972), comb. n., T. satura (Brenske, 1898), comb. n., T. sejugata (Brenske, 1898), comb. n., T. siantarensis (Moser, 1922), comb. n., T. spinicrus (Frey, 1972), comb. n., T. vietnamensis (Frey, 1969), comb. n., and T. wapiensis (Frey, 1972), comb. n. Two new synonyms were found: Tetraserica midoriae Kobayashi, 2017 (syn. n.) = T. laotica (Frey, 1972); T. graciliforceps Liu et al. 2014 (syn. n.) = T. satura (Brenske, 1898). The lectotypes of Tetraserica gestroi (Brenske, 1898), T. miniatula (Moser, 1915), and T. siantarensis (Moser, 1922) are designated. 116 Tetraserica species were recorded from Indochina, among which 88 new species are described: Tetraserica allochangshouensis sp. n., T. allomengeana sp. n., T. allosejugata sp. n., T. angkorthomensis sp. n., T. angkorwatensis sp. n., T. appendiculata sp. n., T. auriculata sp. n., T. bachmaensis sp. n., T. banhuaipoensis sp. n., T. bansanpakiana sp. n., T. bolavensensis sp. n., T. breviforceps sp. n., T. cattienensis sp. n., T. champassakana sp. n., T. constanti sp. n., T. cucphongensis sp. n., T. curviforceps sp. n., T. desalvazzai sp. n., T. doiphukhaensis sp. n., T. doipuiensis sp. n., T. doisuthepensis sp. n., T. dongnaiensis sp. n., T. falciforceps sp. n., T. falciformis sp. n., T. feresiantarensis sp. n., T. filiforceps sp. n., T. fulleri sp. n., T. phukradungensis sp. n., T. geiserae sp. n., T. giulianae sp. n., T. infida sp. n., T. jakli sp. n., T. khaosoidaoensis sp. n., T. kiriromensis sp. n., T. koi sp. n., T. kollae sp. n., T. konchurangensis sp. n., T. kontumensis sp. n., T. loeiensis sp. n., T. lucai sp. n., T. microfurcata sp. n., T. microspinosa sp. n., T. multiangulata sp. n., T. nahaeoensis sp. n., T. nakaiensis sp. n., T. namnaoensis sp. n., T. neouncinata sp. n., T. nonglomensis sp. n., T. nussi sp. n., T. olegi sp. n., T. pahinngamensis sp. n., T. pailinensis sp. n., T. parasetuliforceps sp. n., T. paratonkinensis sp. n., T. petrpacholatkoi sp. n., T. phatoensis sp. n., T. phoupaneensis sp. n., T. pluriuncinata sp. n., T. pseudoliangheensis sp. n., T. pseudoruiliensis sp. n., T. pseudouncinata sp. n., T. quadriforceps sp. n., T. quadrifurcata sp. n., T. rihai sp. n., T. romae sp. n., T. rubrithorax sp. n., T. sapana sp. n., T. semidamadiensis sp. n., T. semipingjiangensis sp. n., T. semiruiliensis sp. n., T. semishanensis sp. n., T. setuliforceps sp. n., T. shanensis sp. n., T. smetsi sp. n., T. margheritae sp. n., T. soppongana sp. n., T. spanglerorum sp. n., T. spinotibialis sp. n., T. subrotundata sp. n., T. tanahrataensis sp. n., T. thainguyensis sp. n., T. trilobiforceps sp. n., T. ululalatensis sp. n., T. umphangensis sp. n., T. vari sp. n., T. veliformis sp. n., T. vientianeensis sp. n., and T. xiengkhouangensis sp. n.

Introduction

While the genus Tetraserica Ahrens, 2004 included earlier only species from Indian subcontinent and Myanmar, Liu et al. (2014) added a significant number of species from China and recently additional species were described by Ahrens and Fabrizi (2016) from northeastern India and by Kobayashi (2017, 2018) from Thailand. Several molecular phylogenetic analyses confirmed the monophyly of Tetraserica (Ahrens & Vogler, 2008; Liu et al. 2015; Eberle et al. 2016). Based on a thorough examination of all type material of Asian mainland Sericini and an assessment of DNA-informed species boundaries (Dalstein et al. 2019) we revise here the taxonomy of the Tetraserica species so far known from Indochina. We found 88 new species, which are described herein. A key to the Indochinese Tetraserica species is given, and their distributions, as well as habitus and male genitalia, are illustrated.

Materials and methods

The terminology and methods used for measurements, specimen dissection, and genital preparation follow Ahrens (2004). Data from specimens examined are cited in the text with original label contents given in quotation marks, multiple labels are separated by a “/”. Male genitalia were glued to a small pointed card attached to the specimen. Descriptions and illustrations of new taxa are based on the holotype or lectotype specimen, while the variation of other specimens is given separately. All descriptions and measurements were made under an Olympus SZX 12 microscope, and all genital and habitus illustrations were made with a digital camera (AxioCam HRc) attached to a stereo microscope (Zeiss Stereo Discovery V20) and Axio Version 4.8 software. The distribution maps were generated using Q-GIS 2.0.1 and Inscape software.

Taxonomy

Tetraserica Ahrens, 2004

Tetraserica Ahrens, 2004: 168 (type species by original designation: Neoserica gestroi Brenske, 1898); Liu et al. 2014: 83; Ahrens and Fabrizi 2016: 122; Kobayashi 2017: 33, 2018: 57.

Diagnosis

Body moderately large to large (6–12 mm), mostly dark brown; ventral surface reddish brown; dorsal surface dull and glabrous.

Labroclypeus subtrapezoidal, wider than long, widest at base, lateral margins moderately convex and convergent to strongly rounded anterior angles, anterior margin weakly sinuate medially, margins moderately reflexed; surface weakly convex, moderately shiny, finely and densely punctate; frontoclypeal suture indistinctly incised, flat and weakly curved medially; ocular canthus short and triangular, impunctate, with a single terminal seta. Frons dull, with sparse, fine punctures, with single erect setae beside each eye. Antenna yellowish, with ten antennomeres; club composed of four antennomeres in male, straight, rarely longer than 1.5 times as the remaining antennomeres combined; club in female composed of three antennomeres, as long as the remaining antennomeres combined. Mentum elevated and slightly flattened anteriorly.

Pronotum moderately wide and strongly convex, lateral margins evenly convex, more strongly narrowed anteriorly towards sharp and slightly produced anterior angles. Anterior margin of pronotum slightly convex, with fine complete marginal line. Posterior angles blunt or strongly rounded. Surface finely and densely punctate, except minute setae glabrous, lateral and lateral anterior margins sparsely setose. Hypomeron not carinate. Scutellum triangular, finely and densely punctate.

Elytra oblong, widest just behind middle, striae distinctly impressed, finely and moderately densely punctate, intervals distinctly convex, with coarse and dense punctures concentrated along striae, with very minute setae in punctures; epipleural edge robust, ending at weakly curved and slightly blunt external apical angle of elytra, epipleura densely setose, apical border with a broad fringe of microtrichomes (100×).

Ventral surface weakly shiny, finely and densely punctate, metasternum sparsely covered with fine, short, or very minute setae, metacoxa glabrous, with a few single setae laterally; abdominal sternites finely and densely punctuate, with a transverse row of coarse punctures, each bearing a robust seta. Mesosternum between mesocoxae as wide as mesofemur. Pygidium weakly convex and dull, densely punctate, without smooth midline, almost glabrous, but with a few longer setae along apical margin; pygidium without strong sexual dimorphism.

Legs moderately wide; femora finely and sparsely punctate; metafemur wide and moderately shiny or dull, anterior margin acute, posterior margin smooth ventrally and only weakly widened in apical half, posterior margin smooth dorsally, with a few short setae basally. Posterior margin of metafemur generally straight or slightly convex. Metatibia moderately wide to wide and moderately long, widest at half of metatibial length, dorsal margin sharply carinate, with two groups of spines; lateral face finely and sparsely punctate; ventral edge finely serrated, with four robust equidistant setae, medial face smooth, apex interiorly near tarsal articulation with a shallow sinuation. Tarsomeres with fine, very dense setae ventrally on distal half, neither laterally nor dorsally carinate, dorsally smooth; metatarsomeres with a strongly serrated ridge ventrally and glabrous; first metatarsomere slightly shorter than two following tarsomeres combined, one third of its length longer than dorsal tibial spine. Protibia short, bidentate; anterior claws symmetrical, basal tooth of both claws bluntly truncate at apex.

Aedeagus: Phallobase with a more or less long median ventral extension (median phallobasal lamina).

Remarks

Tetraserica differs from closely related genera, Microserica Brenske, 1894 and Trioserica Moser, 1922, by lacking the ventral carina on hypomeron. From Microserica it also differs by lacking the sexual dimorphism of the pygidium, from Trioserica by the bidentate protibia. In contrast to the Microserica, species of Tetraserica are active at night and are attracted by light.

Distribution

The genus is distributed almost in the entire Oriental region except the southern Indian subcontinent; we know that additional species described by various authors are so far assigned to “Neoserica” from Philippines, Sumatra, and Borneo but that awaits a formal revision (Ahrens 2004).

Variation

Length of body: 11.8–12.5 mm; length of elytra: 7.5–9.2 mm; maximum width: 6.4–7.0 mm.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica falciformis sp. n. differs in male genital shape from the similar T. sculptilis by having the posterior margin of metafemur straight rather than being blunt or with a tooth; furthermore, the dorsal lobe of the right paramere is markedly curved and strongly widened at base.

Etymology

The species name (adjective in the nominative singular) is derived from the combined Latin words falcis- (sickle) and formis (of shape), with reference to the sickle-shaped right paramere.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica pseudoliangheensis sp. n. differs from T. falciformis by the dorsal lobe of right paramere having a sharp hook at its apex (dorsal view). The species is also rather similar to T. liangheensis Liu et al., 2014; however, in the new species the posterior margin of metafemur does not possess a tooth and the dorsal lobe of the right paramere is much wider at the base.

Etymology

The species name (adjective in the nominative singular) is derived from the combined Latin words pseudo- (nearly) and the species name liangheensis, with reference to the similarity to T. liangheensis Liu et al., 2014.

Variation

Length of body: 9.3–9.4 mm; length of elytra: 6.6–6.9 mm; maximum width: 5.7–5.8 mm.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica smetsi sp. n. is very similar to T. shangsiensis Liu et al., 2014 in shape of the aedeagus. The new species differs from the latter by the median lamina of phallobase being approximately as long as left paramere and slightly bifurcate at apex, as well as the preapical tooth of the left paramere being dorsally positioned and duplicate. In T. shangsiensis the median lamina of phallobase is distinctly shorter than left paramere, simply pointed, and slightly rounded at apex.

Etymology

The new species is named after one of its collectors, K Smets (noun in genitive singular).

Female unknown.

Variation

Length of body: 7.1–8.1 mm; length of elytra: 5.5–5.8 mm; maximum width: 4.7–4.8 mm.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica subrotundata sp. n. is rather similar to T. matsumotoi Kobayashi, 2017 in shape of the aedeagus; the new species differs by the right paramere being bent only once and being slightly wider in lateral view, and the apex of median phallobasal lamina strongly rounded instead of sharply pointed.

Etymology

The name of the new species (adjective in nominative singular) is derived from the combined Latin prefix sub- (under) and adjective rotundatus (rounded), with reference to the shape of the medial apical phallobasal lamina of the aedeagus.

Scale bars: 0.5 mm. Habitus not to scale.

Female unknown.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica auriculata sp. n. is similar to T. pailinensis sp. n. in shape of aedeagus, from which it differs by the dorsal lobe of the left paramere being distinctly shorter than the median lamina of phallobase and the right paramere being narrower (in lateral view) and distinctly shorter than median lamina of phallobase. In T. pailinensis sp. n. the dorsal lobe of left paramere is distinctly exceeding the median lamina of phallobase and the right paramere is wider (in lateral view) and a little shorter than median lamina of phallobase.

Etymology

The name of the new species (adjective in nominative singular) is derived from the Latin adjective auriculatus (ear-shaped), with reference to the ear-shaped median apical lamella of phallobase.

Description

Length of body: 10.5 mm; length of elytra: 7.8 mm; maximum width: 6.4 mm. Surface of labroclypeus and disc of frons glabrous. Smooth area anterior to eye twice as wide as long. Eyes small, ratio of diameter/interocular width: 0.51. Ratio of length of metepisternum/metacoxa: 1/1.56. Metatibia short and wide, ratio width/length: 1/2.75; basal group of dorsal spines of metatibia at first third of metatibial length.

Aedeagus: Fig. 34E–G. Habitus: Fig. 34H.

Female unknown.

Variation

Length of body: 10.0–10.5 mm; length of elytra: 7.2–7.8 mm; maximum width: 6.1–6.4 mm.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica pseudoruiliensis sp. n. differs from the similar T. gestroi (Brenske, 1898) by the right paramere which is much less than one third as long as left paramere. The new species differs from T. ruiliensis Liu et al., 2014 by the left paramere being straight rather than bent at the base.

Etymology

The species name (adjective in the nominative singular) is derived from the combined Greek prefix pseudo- (false) and the species name ruiliensis, with reference to the similarity to T. ruiliensis Liu et al.

Female unknown.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica phoupaneensis sp. n. is similar to T. vietnamensis (Frey, 1972); the new species differs by the left paramere being as long as phallobase and by the right paramere having a longer basal lobe which is directed distally. In T. vietnamensis the left paramere is only half as long as phallobase, and the right paramere has no basal lobe.

Etymology

The new species is named after the type locality, Mt Phou Pane (adjective in the nominative singular).

Aedeagus: Fig. 44I–K. Habitus: Fig. 44L.

Female unknown.

Diagnosis

Tetraserica semidamadiensis sp. n. is very similar to T. damadiensis Liu et al., 2014 but the new species differs by the dorsolateral tooth being situated at the basal third of the right paramere, and by the wider right paramere (lateral view).

Etymology

The species name (adjective in the nominative singular) is derived from the combined Latin words semi- (half) and the species name damadiensis, with reference to the similarity to T. damadiensis Liu et al., 2014.
