Abstract

A new species of the tenebrionid genus Rhopalobates Fairmaire, 1897 (tribe Cnodalonini Gistel, 1856, subfamily Stenochiinae Kirby, 1837) is described from Burma and Bhutan. Until now only the type species R. villardi Fairmaire, 1897 was known, distributed over a wider area in the eastern Himalayas (Sikkim), southern China (Sichuan, Fujian, Guangdong) and in Indochina. Both species display a distinct sexual dimorphism.
