Vitali F. 2016 -. Eurapatophysis groehni n. gen. and n. sp. (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) from Baltic amber: the first fossil member of the tribe Apatophyseini Lacordaire, 1869. Baltic J. Coleopterol. 16(2): 117 - 122.

Eurapatophysis groehni n. gen. and n. sp. from Baltic amber (Early Oligocene) is described. The new taxon is related to the Indochinese Mimapatophysis Miroshnikov, 2014 and the Himalayan Protapatophysis Semenov-Tian-Shanskij & Stschegoleva-Barovskaia, 1936, from which it differs in the smaller body size, the strongly punctured head and pronotum, as well the elytral sculpture. Hypotheses concerning the habitat of this fossil taxon and the paleontological history of the Asian Dorcasominae are proposed.

KeyWords : Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Dorcasominae, Apatophyseini, Baltic amber, taxonomy.
