Choeroparnops scaberrimus
status

comb. nov.

Choeroparnops scaberrimus  comb. nov. (Piza, 1976)

Diophanes scaberrimus Piza, 1976 

According to the description the species supposedly resembles Diophanes scabricolle  , but it obviously belongs to the very different genus Choerparnops, which also belongs to a different tribe, Platyphyllini  instead of Pterophyllini  . Within that genus it is similar to C. forcipatus  , but differs in pronotum shape, spination of hind legs, male subgenital plate, and measurements.
