Discussion and differential diagnosis. The new species from the south-facing slope of the Sierra Nevada ( Spain: Prov. Almería) belongs—morphologically—to the Kyklioacalles  teter-barbarus group: with its "double integument of elytra and pronotum", which means that the space between the punctures is also covered with scales (Stüben 2006). These species don’t have any clusters of high erected bristles on the elytra. The new species Kyklioacalles plantapilosus  must be compared with the most closely related species from Tunisia and southern Spain (Andalusia): Kyklioacalles bupleuri Stüben, 2004  (= Kyklioacalles almadensis Stüben, 2004  syn. n.), and Kyklioacalles anthyllis Stüben, 2004  from the Sierra de Cazorla (locus typicus) and the Sierra Nevada too (see above).
