Abstract

Brachypsectra kadleci sp. nov. from Zagros Mts., western Iran, a new species of the genus Brachypsectra LeConte, 1874, is described and illustrated. Based on the pectinate club formed by six antennomeres, the new species is closely related to both the previously known Oriental Brachypsectra, described by Blair (1930). Brachypsectra kadleci sp. nov. represents the first record of the family Brachypsectridae in the Palaearctic region.
