Genus Clinophaestus Storozhenko   , gen. nov.

Type species: Clinophaestus robustus Storozhenko   , sp. nov., here designated.

Description. Body robust, moderate in size ( Figs. 35, 36 View FIGURES 35 – 39 ). Head not exserted above the pronotum in lateral view ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Antennae 11 -segmented, 2.5–2.8 times longer than fore femora; two apical segments narrow; outer side of 5 th – 9 th segments apically triangularly pointed ( Fig. 24 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Antennal bases situated below the lower margin of eyes ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Eyes more or less globular, slightly elevated above the vertex in lateral view ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Fastigium of vertex in dorsal view triangular; median fastigial carinula obsolete, lateral carinulae well defined ( Fig. 26 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Fastigium of vertex and frontal ridge in lateral view forming distinct notch ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Width of frontal ridge near the base of antennae 1.7 –2.0 times less than width of 1 st antennal segment. Apical segments of maxillary palps slightly widened. Pronotum in dorsal view with broadly rounded anterior margin ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ); posterior process of pronotum almost reaching the apex of abdomen ( Figs. 25 View FIGURES 22 – 34 , 38 View FIGURES 35 – 39 ). Disc of pronotum densely granulated; posterior process broadly triangular with bifurcate apex ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Median carina of pronotum in lateral view low, almost straight ( Fig. 22 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ); lateral carinae in prozona distinct, smooth; prozona 1.3–1.5 times as long as wide; posterior angles of lateral lobes of pronotum turned downward, obliquely truncate at apex ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Hind margin of the lateral lobes of pronotum with the lower sinus only, the tegminal (upper) sinus absent ( Fig. 22 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Tegmina and hind wings absent. Fore femora 2.9–3.1 times, mid femora 2.5–2.7 times as long as wide. Hind femora oviform, stout, 1.9–2.1 times as long as wide ( Fig. 28 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Male subgenital plate short, with broadly rounded apex ( Fig. 32 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Female subgenital plate 1.1–1.2 times as long as wide, with triangularly pointed posterior margin ( Fig. 34 View FIGURES 22 – 34 ). Valves of ovipositor broad.

Composition. Type species only.

Etymology. From Latin ‘ clino ’—divergence, and the generic name Phaestus   .
