Long time no log in …

Everything’s going well. After finishing my thesis for master degree, I am recently working on Chinese Intestinarius and Sathytes, the latter of which has no valid species in China so far, but is  amazingly abdunt as a fact.

The following is one of the new species of Sathytes. Identification on species-level is larged based on the male sexual characters on antennae and the shape of aedeagus, and it seems impossible to ID a species only with female, especially for those extremely close allied ones.

Sathytes sp.

Araneibatrus gracilipes gen. et sp. n., a remarkable Batrisitae (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Pselaphinae) from P. R. China

PDF: http://www.pensoft.net/inc/journals/download.php?fileId=1647&fileTable=J_GALLEYS

HTML: http://www.pensoft.net/journal_home_page.php?journal_id=1&page=article&SESID=4a4b2432efd2b37fb6297af58de744f4&type=show&article_id=740

The genus is mophorlogically close to genera Tribasodellus (troglobitic, in press) of South China and Texamaurops Barr and Steeves of South central America (troglobitic) by elongate antenna and legs.

Really love Zookeys’ color pages, by the way.
