Euconnus (Cladoconnus) dodecanicus Franz

( Figs. 11–12 View FIGURES 7 – 14. 7 )

Material examined (3 3): LECTOTYPE, 1 3, present designation: GREECE: white label (p) Insel Rhodos, leg. H. Franz / white label (h) Euconnus (Cladoconnus) dodecanicus m. / red label (p) LECTOTYPE, Euconnus (Cladoconnus) dodecanicus Franz, P. Hlaváč & M. Stevanoviċ des., 2011 (NHMW). PARALECTOTYPE, 1 3: same data as for the lectotype (NHMW).

Lectotype designation: Redescription of this species given below is based on two specimens deposited in NHMW having a status of syntypes. Franz (1966) mentioned two males in his original description. One male is here designated lectotype and another one paralectotype, in order to ensure the stability of nomenclature and provide a unique name-bearing type for Euconnus (Cladoconnus) dodecanicus . Other material: 1 3: GR Rhodos (6) Epta Piges 70m, 36°15'22''N, 28°06'50''E, leg. Meybohm 3.4.2012 (PHKS).

Redescription: Body shiny, lighter reddish-brown, body length 1.40–1.50 mm, body width 0.60–0.65 mm; with long, golden pubescence, sparse on sides of elytra becoming less towards elytral disc where it is completely absent, dense and erect on sides of pronotum and head. Head about as long as wide, oval; eyes protuberant; supraantennal tubercles weakly protuberant. Antenae ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 7 – 14. 7 ) 0.65 mm long; antennomere III subquadrate; antennomere IV slightly smaller than III; V–VII transverse, VII 1.70 times as wide as long and larger and wider than VI; antennomere VIII about 1.20 times as wide as long; IX transverse, about 1.40 times as wide as long; antennomere X strongly transverse, about 2.20 times as wide as long and about 1.70 times as short as IX; terminal antennomere 1.40 times as long as wide and almost 3 times as long as X. Pronotum slightly longer than wide. Elytra about 1.30 times as long as wide, sutural striae long, reaching basal fourth of elytra. Aedeagus 0.27 mm, as in Fig. 12 View FIGURES 7 – 14. 7 .

Distribution: Greece (island Rhodos).

Differential diagnosis: Euconnus dodecanicus differs from other species of schlosseri group by very small body, 1.40–1.50 mm long, transverse antennomere IX, 1.35 times as wide as long and strongly transverse antennomere X, about 2.20 times as wide as long.
