Abstract

Laccobius (Dimorpholaccobius) gloriana sp.n. is described from east Spain, and its distinctive characters are discussed. The species is most closely related to L. neapolitanus Rottenberg, 1874 and L. obscuratus Rottenberg, 1874. Laccobius ytenensis Sharp, 1910, currently considered a subspecies of L. atrocephalus Reitter, 1872, is reinstated as a valid species. The distribution of L. ytenensis and L. atrocephalus in the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa is reviewed. Laccobius (Dimorpholaccobius) gloriana sp.n. aus Ost-Spanien wird beschrieben, und die charakteristischen Merkmale werden diskutiert. Die Art ist nahe verwandt mit L. neapolitanus Rottenberg, 1874 und L. obscuratus Rottenberg, 1874. Laccobius ytenensis Sharp, 1910, als Unterart von L. atrocephalus Reitter, 1872 betrachtet, wird als gültige Art wiedereingeführt. Die Verbreitung von L. ytenensis and L. atrocephalus auf der Iberischen Halbinsel und in Nordafrika wird besprochen.
