Telnov D. 2018. Descriptions of two new Australian genera of Anthicidae (Insecta: Coleoptera). Baltic J. Coleopterol., 18(2): 199 - 218.

Two new Australian Anthicidae genera, Australosteropes gen. nov. (Steropinae) and Sahulanthicus gen. nov. (Anthicinae: Anthicini) are described, diagnosed, and illustrated. Some critical morphological characters of these new groups and the subfamilies to which they belong are discussed. New combinations are made for the following 18 taxa: Australosteropes davidsonae (Armstrong, 1948) comb. nov. (from Macratria Newman, 1838), Sahulanthicus abundans (Lea, 1922) comb. nov., S. apicalis (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. baudinensis (Champion, 1895) comb. nov., S. brevicollis (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. cavifrons (Champion, 1895) comb. nov., S. crassipes (LaFerté-Sénectère, 1849) comb. nov., S. crassus (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. discoideus (Champion, 1895) comb. nov., S.immaculatus (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. inglorius (Lea, 1896) comb. nov., S. laticollis (MacLeay, 1872) comb. nov., S. luridus (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. monostigma (Champion, 1895) comb. nov., S. obliquefasciatus (King, 1869) comb. nov., S. permutatus (Pic, 1897) comb. nov., S. scutellatus (Lea, 1896) comb. nov. (all from Microhoria Chevrolat, 1877), and S. dilatipennis (Pic, 1900) comb. nov. (from Anthicus Paykull, 1798). Lectotype is designated for Sahulanthicus dilatipennis (Pic, 1900).
