Megatoma   sp. [sp. 7]

With long black larvae (similar to Trogoderma   sp. 1), the adults are totally black, and longer and narrower than the adults of Trogoderma   sp. 5, assigned provisionally to the genus Megatoma   on the basis of the first segment of metatarsus being shorter than the second, and by the less elongated last antennal segment in the males, a distinctive character contrastin with the long last antennal segment in the males of Attagenus   spp. ( Hinton 1945).
