Lytta zubovi sp. nov., a new species of Meloidae from Crimea (Ukraine) is described and figured. The species is dimorphic, with the female, known only from a photograph, brachyelytrous and probably apterous. It is tentatively placed in the genus Lytta Fabricius, 1775, waiting for a revision of the tribe Lyttini. According to the present concept of Lytta, the new species is similar to the Holarctic subgenus Poreospasta Horn, 1868, never recorded from Europe, even though it is strictly different, particularly in the head and pronotum shape, and the dimorphic condition of wings.

Abstract

Lytta zubovi sp. nov., a new species of Meloidae from Crimea (Ukraine) is described and figured. The species is dimorphic, with the female, known only from a photograph, brachyelytrous and probably apterous. It is tentatively placed in the genus Lytta Fabricius, 1775, waiting for a revision of the tribe Lyttini. According to the present concept of Lytta, the new species is similar to the Holarctic subgenus Poreospasta Horn, 1868, never recorded from Europe, even though it is strictly different, particularly in the head and pronotum shape, and the dimorphic condition of wings.
