Material examined (4 3, 1 Ƥ): AUSTRIA: 1 3, 1 Ƥ: Oberdrauburg, Sittnitz, 2.9.1941, leg. Franz. (NHMW). SLOVENIA: 1 3: Wochein [= Bohinjska Bistrica], Diener, 1898, coll. Dr. J. Fodor, (HNMH). CROATIA: 1 3: Istria, Cernizza, 1915. X. 16, coll. Dr. J. Fodor, (HNMH). ITALY: 1 3: 9.6.85 PN [Pordenone, Friuli-Venezia], Meduno 650 m, Pu Alpi Carniche, leg. Serlani M. (NHMW).

Description: Body shiny, reddish-brown, legs and maxillary palpi lighter, body length 1.95 mm, body width about 0.85 mm; pubescence dense and long on head and pronotum, sparse on sides of elytra becoming less towards elytral disc where it is completely absent. Head slightly wider than long, tempora evenly convergent posteriorly; eyes strongly protuberant; supra-antennal tubercles strongly protuberant. Antennae ( Fig. 31 View FIGURES 31 – 38. 31 ) 1.15 mm long; antennomeres III–VI subequal and subquadrate, VII transverse, 1.30 time as wide as long; antennomere VIII 2.10 times as long as wide and 1.25 times as long as IX; IX 1.70 times as long as wide; antennomere X elongate, 1.20 times as long as wide; terminal antennomere 1.90 times as long as wide and about 1.60 times as long as X. Pronotum slightly longer than wide. Elytra about 1.33 times as long as wide, sutural striae reaching basal fifth of elytra. Aedeagus 0.50 mm in length, as in Fig. 32 View FIGURES 31 – 38. 31 .

Distribution: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Serbia or Montenegro.

Differential diagnosis: Euconnus kiesenwetteri kiesenwetteri differs from other species of the denticornis group by large body, 1.95 mm long, antennomeres III–VI subquadrate and subequal, antennomere VIII 2.10 times as long as wide, X 1.20 times as long as wide.

Note: This species was reported from Yugoslavia in Davies (2004: 207). Later this country was split to Serbia and Montenegro and it is not known to us to which of these two countries this record referred to.
