Alekseev V. I.

Alekseev V. I. 2013. Protolissodema ulrikae, a new genus and species (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea: Salpingidae) from Baltic amber. Baltic J. Coleopterol., 13 (1): 67 - 71.

The first representative of the family Salpingidae Leach, 1815 is described from Baltic amber. Protolissodema ulrikae gen. et sp. nov. is the most similar to the extant genera Sphaeriestes Stephen, 1829, Rabocerus Mulsant, 1859 and especially Lissodema Curtis, 1833 and differs by the shape of pronotum, by the distinctly separated procoxae, by the not striate-punctate elytra and by the structure of antennae.

KeyWords : Coleoptera, Salpingidae, Protolissodema ulrikae, new genus, new species, Baltic amber, Upper Eocene.
