Description: Body shiny, reddish-brown, body length 1.50–1.60 mm, body width 0.60–0.65 mm; with long, golden pubescence, sparse on anterior part of head, elytral and pronotal disc, dense and erect on sides of pronotum and posterior part of head. Head about as long as wide, tempora evenly convergent posteriorly; eyes protuberant; supra-antennal tubercles weakly protuberant. Antennae ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 15 – 22. 15 ) 0.70–0.76 mm long; antennomeres III subquadrate; IV oval, slightly wider than long; V almost quadrate; VI –VII asymmetrical, transverse and about 1.35 times as wide as long; antennomere VIII 1.30 times as wide as long; IX 1.30 times as wide as long and slightly wider than VIII; antennomere X transverse, 1.45 times as wide as long; terminal antennomere 1.50 times as long as wide and about slightly more than twice as long as X. Pronotum slightly longer than wide. Elytra about 1.30 times as long as wide, sutural striae very short, marked just at base of elytra. Aedeagus 0.29 mm in length, as in Fig. 20 View FIGURES 15 – 22. 15 .

Distribution: South-eastern Turkey (provinces Kahramanmaraş, Osmaniye, Hatay).

Differential diagnosis: Euconnus meybohmi   differs from other species of schlosseri   group by small body, 1.50–1.60 mm long, slightly transverse antennomere IX and X which are about 1.30 times as wide as long, transverse antennomere X which is 1.45 times as wide as long. E. meybohmi   is very similar to E. anatolicus   , but it differs by slightly darker colour, subquadrate antennomere III which is 1.70 times as wide as long for E. anatolicus   and with longer antennae, 0.70–0.76 mm against only 0.65 mm in E. anatolicus   .
