Euconnus (Cladoconnus) goerzensis Reitter   : Franz, 1964: 158, Fig. 30 View FIGURES 23 – 30. 23 ; Franz, 1971 b: 301, Fig. 25 View FIGURES 23 – 30. 23 ; Karaman, 1974: 140, Fig. 30 View FIGURES 23 – 30. 23 .

Material examined (4 3, 1 Ƥ): CROATIA: 1 3: Plitvitzer Seen, 10 – 23.8.1975, leg. Brachat (HMGG). BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA: 2 3: Igman – Gb. Apfelbeck (HNHM). SERBIA: 1 3, 1 Ƥ: Tara Planina, Zaovine, 920m, 28.x. 2008, leg. M. Stevanoviċ (PHKS).

Description: Body shiny, reddish-brown, body length about 1.95 mm, body width about 0.80 mm; with long, golden pubescence, shorter but even pubescence on whole surface of elytra, longer, dense and erect on sides of pronotum and posterior part of head. Head slightly wider than long, tempora evenly convergent posteriorly; eyes protuberant; supra-antennal tubercles strongly protuberant. Antennae ( Fig. 15 View FIGURES 15 – 22. 15 ) 0.95–1.05 mm long; antennomere III about as long as wide; IV –VI subequal, slightly transverse; VII 1.50 times as wider than long, wider than VI; antennomere VIII about 1.15 times as long as wide; IX slightly wider than long; antennomere X subquadrate; terminal antennomere 1.70 as long as wide, about 1.80 times as long as X. Pronotum slightly longer than wide. Elytra about 1.35 times as long as wide, sutural striae reaching basal fifth of elytra. Aedeagus 0.39 mm in length, as in Fig. 16 View FIGURES 15 – 22. 15 .

Distribution: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Italy.

Differential diagnosis: Euconnus goerzensis   differs from other species of schlosseri   group by large body, about 1.95 mm long, antennomere IX slightly wider than long, X subquadrate, symmetrical. E. goerzensis   is most similar to E. pulcher   , both are largest species of the schlosseri   group, but it is readily separated from late by shorter terminal antennomere which is only 1.70 times as long as wide, while in E. pulcher   it is about twice as long as wide.
