Material examined (3 3): AUSTRIA: 1 3: Kärtnen, Koschua oberhalb Zell-Pfarre, NW Koschutnik-Turm, 1750m, 46 ° 26 ' 53 ''N, 14 ° 24 ' 13 ''E / Pinus mugo, Rhododendron   hirsutum Rasen, 13.vii. 2005, leg. Zerche (PHKS). SLOVENIA: 1 3: Luče env., Pečovnik, 10.7. 2000, evening, J. Vávra leg. (JVOC); 1 3: Slovenia VM- 34, Karavanke-Stol, 2000 m, 6.7. 1999, leg. Broder (JBKS).

Redescription: Body shiny, pitchy black, body length 1.80–1.90 mm, body width 0.75–0.80 mm; with pubescence long and golden, short but even pubescence on elytral disc, 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 prominences gently protuberant. Antennae ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES 7 – 14. 7 ) 0.90–0.95 mm long; antennomeres III about as long as wide; IV –VI transverse, subequal in length and width, about 1.75 times as wide as long; antennomere VII modified, with internal protuberance, 2.20 times as wide as long; antennomeres VIII and IX slightly wider than long; antennomere X transverse, 1.65 times as wide as long; terminal antennomere very long, 1.95 times as long as wide and more than 3 times as long as X. Pronotum slightly longer than wide. Elytra about 1.35 times as long as wide, sutural striae longer, reaching to basal fifth of elytra. Aedeagus 0.39 mm in length, as in Fig. 10 View FIGURES 7 – 14. 7 .

Distribution: Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland.

Differential diagnosis: Euconnus carinthiacus   differs from other species of schlosseri   group by large, pitchy black body, terminal antennomere more than 3 times longer than antennomere X, modified antennomere VII with internal protuberance and antennomere X 1.65 times as wide as long. E. carinthiacus   can be readily separated from all other species by its shiny, pitchy black coloured body, unique for Cladoconnus   of the studied area.
